Free motorbike event will cater for all

Thursday 10th February 2011

Stunt performances and exciting opportunities for bikers are among the highlights offered in a free one day motorbike event, being held in Bedfordshire.

The event, taking place on 27 March, is organised by Amey who provide road safety education, training and publicity on behalf of Central Bedfordshire Council.

The event is being held to raise funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Other charities in attendance will be S.E.R.V – a free, charitable service provided by bikers who deliver medical supplies to hospitals, and ‘Magpas’ – the only night-time air ambulance covering central Bedfordshire.

A chance for non-bikers to have a free ride on a motorbike or moped will be offered, but for more experienced bikers looking to have their riding assessed, officers will be available throughout the day to take bookings.

Those looking to have a more relaxing day can visit ‘The Wall of Death’, where stunt riders will be performing all day. Stunts will include a go-kart trick, acrobatic riding and the ‘Hell Riders Race’. Spectators can view the stunts from a viewing platform above the wall.
