Young riders are among the most vulnerable bikers, so we’re holding more young bikers barbecue events just for young riders (under 25 years of age) although parents of riders (or parents looking for advice & peace of mind) are welcome as well to find out more..

We’ve have had many special guests including BSB riders Tarran Mckenzie, James Ellison (Ex MotoGP rider), Shaun Winfield (BSB) and Rhys Lawrey (World Record Holder) at the events on the night, as well as numerous biker stands offering advice & support. Some of our celebrity guests have also got involved with the fun by getting involved with the buzzwire as well as wearing our facemats for photo ops.
There will also be expert advice on maintenance, training, riding gear and other things to help young riders……..We have rather worryingly received a report that under 25 year old bikers are statistically the most likely to be killed or seriously injured, so we hope that you will encourage any young riders to attend & take advantage of the support offered to help ensure this statistic will fall or at least not go any higher.
If anyone has stands or stalls who might like to attend the event please let me know. There is plenty of room, but no trainers or dealers unless they are very specific.
Young riders can often get lost along the way when it gets to that stage between the CBT & the bike test process through their biking career so we hope these events will also encourage younger riders to enjoy the hobby as well as help improve their riding & skills, not forgetting some peace of mind for mum & dad.
The last couple of years have been very positive and the start of something good that we hope we will continue with in future years. Many riders, school leavers & parents who want to find out more have been attending & making use of the support on offer.
As well as the guidance offered on the stalls, we had the support of our special guests as well as McAms, The Yamaha experience, MAG, IAM, Secure Autotrack and of course LDC Training & Shireoaks. We have also featured on BBC Midlands Today. At some events we also have the Moto Gymkhana on hand so you can test your skills in a controlled environment.
