The weather wasn’t kind to the Bike Event this year but there was still a fantastic array of bikes on display as well as great stall and entertainment and those who went still had a great time. Here are some of the comments posted on Facebook:
Kev Stephenson– “It was my first time at this event. I was very impressed with everything about it, and it was great to see such fantastic support from the local community, especially those people who lined the streets to welcome the riders into their beautiful town. I was not expecting that at all! Well done to all the entertainers, marshals and other volunteers for all their hard work in making the event a great success. I’ll certainly be back.”
Tom Bowler– “ The Armed Forces Bikers would like to thank the organisers for a brilliant if wet day, and to all the wonderful people whose generosity when visiting our stall for a chat, made it an really memorable day.”
Steve Quantrill– “ I’ve been to all 4 events, have enjoyed all of them. I don’t know how you can improve on the event. Bigger doesn’t always mean better.”
Pamela Hirst– “ Amazing day as always even if it was a wet one thoroughly enjoyed every minute…well done to everyone that organises it.”
The Bike Event Committee issued the following statement:
Thank you to all the brave lads and lasses that braved the weather today for the Fourth Hornsea Biker Event which despite the rain in the afternoon worked out well I think. There are many people to thank which in due course will happen but for now thank you all, for joining us and raising money for the charities, the public as always are the stars! All the best and looking forward to bigger and better next year. Any comment you wish to make we will listen to and looked at for the next one.
Preview from August Edition
As usual the prelude to this year’s Hornsea Biker Event will be the ride-in from the Hornsea Garden Centre at Sigglesthorne. The collection for the ride-in will be in aid of Prostate Cancer UK. The riders will parade down Newbegin before entering Hall Garth Park. The motorbikes, motor scooters and trikes will be parked on the upper areas of the Park to give them more prominence than ever.
Bands will be playing throughout the day on the rock stage. The requests by bands to play at this year’s event has meant that only the best of the best have been chosen. The Variety Stages will feature perennial favourites like the Ruby Reds, as well as a displays by belly dancers and pole dancing exercises.
