Bikefest 2012 set to be a roaring success...
(9th August 2012)
Hertfordshire’s annual event for motorcyclists is set to be bigger and better than ever before this summer.
Bikefest 2012 has more than 40 exhibitors booked to attend including motorbike dealerships, motorcycle clubs, fire bikes from around the country and much more. The event, hosted by Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue, is a family fun day promoting messages of road safety.
Stunt rider Mark 'Sparky' Chennell, British Racing Team MackRory Racing, and Berkhamstead Trials Club will be demonstrating their skills and motorcycle gymkhana, a new speed/control phenomenon that has arrived from Japan, is sure to entertain motorcycling enthusiasts.
There will also be displays of specialised fire bikes used by Fire and Rescue Services across the country including Hertfordshire’s own fire bike and police motorcycle riders.
And if all that action makes you hungry, a hog roast, with all profits going to charity, will be on offer.
Stalls, competitions, trade stands, a sports massage area and children’s entertainment will be among the other attractions at the free event, to be held at the Longfield Training Centre in Hitchin Road, Stevenage, from 10am to 4pm on Sunday August 19.
Bikefest, now in its fourth year, will be split between the Firefighters Charity, Help For Heroes, and SERV Bloodrunners.
If you are interested in hosting a trade stand, stall or just getting involved, contact Mark Burgess on 07817 339008 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Richard Thake, Executive Member for Community Safety, said: "This is a fun event with a very serious message and the ultimate aim of reducing road-related injuries and fatalities.
"Bikefest will encourage motorcyclists to continue to invest time and money into improving their skills, knowledge and experience through assessed riding events, such as BikeSafe, membership of advanced motorcycle groups and getting involved in organised track days. Bikefest is also a great way for those who don’t ride motorbikes to understand more about sharing the road with motorcyclists safely.”
