Dave Coates (and Andy Huddleston) will be at BikeWise 2019

Once again our local Darlington based world record holder - Dave Coates will be performing at BikeWise 2019, this Sunday 21st July.
The car park at the Police HQ is looking forward to having some burning rubber ‘deposited’ on it by Dave !
This is the 25th BikeWise Show and its Dave's 24th consecutive BikeWise ( and he still doesn't look a day older !!) - Dave didn't do the first show which was on the 7th May 1995 but has been ever present since then.

A fantastic achievement and we are now seeing second and third generations of families enjoying the skills that Dave shows on two (& four) wheels - long may it continue.
Dave will be performing a couple of shows during the day ( times to be finalized and published later on this site ) and he will be available at his van throughout the day for autograph's, photo's and any questions you might like to put to him...
Dave will be using a variety of Yamaha bikes at the show including the Yamaha MT10 , MT09, MT07 his quad & the beast of them all….his Yamaha 50cc moped !!
In the early days of BikeWise, Dave and a local Trials rider Andy Huddleston ‘treated’ us with their skills on two wheels.
Andy performed at the first BikeWise show in 1995 when he was still at school as a teenager. Andy had been a junior kickstart champion and was competing very successfully in National trials events as a works Hamilton Yamaha rider.
Andy subsequently joined Durham Constabulary and very quickly progressed through the ranks and at the same time continued to perform at BikeWise until 2007.
Andy took a break from riding but has recently started riding again and will once again show his skills at this 25th BikeWise show
The picture above shows Dave and Andy at the press launch for BikeWise 1996.
Two great local riders who have been great supporters of the show over the years.
Please come along on Sunday, enjoy the skills of these two riders and show your appreciation.

After the shows you'll be able to talk to Dave and Andy and learn more about how they ride etc....
