Motorcycle Parking at Durham Services

The two motorcycle frames that were installed at the Roadchef Services (Durham Services) in 1995 have had a bit of a spring clean and been brought ‘up to date’ .

The frames were originally purchased with funding from the Durham Agency Against Crime and were installed when the new RoadChef (Durham) Services were opened. This coincided with our first BikeWise show in 1995 which was opened by ‘Sgt Bob Cryer’, actor & keen motorcyclist Eric Richard who was the star of the long running TV series ‘The Bill’

Eric is seen in the bottom photograph at the opening of the motorcycle parking area with retired Sgt Bob Brown and PC Paul Rodgers.

Eric still keeps ‘up to date’ with the BikeWise ‘world’ through his nephew, PC Ian Squire who is a serving officer on the Dog Section of Durham Constabulary and can be seen most years at the dog display at BikeWise show.

The frames have been well used by thousands of motorcyclists as the services are a regular meeting place for many motorcycle groups including our own BikeWise Training and Durham Advanced Motorcyclists and were looking ‘tired’. The new signs reflect the image of BikeWise and also promote the website :
