Durham BikeWise 2019: Celebrating 25 years of safer riding

Thousands of visitors from across the North East and beyond are expected to descend on Durham this July when the ever-popular BikeWise event celebrates its 25th anniversary.

Promoting safe riding through a host of fun activities for the whole family, Durham BikeWise gets bigger and better every year. Join the Carole Nash team in celebrating this momentous milestone with a bumper biking bonanza at Durham Police HQ on July 21.

Always a great day out for visitors of every age, the 2019 instalment of Durham BikeWise will be no exception – and it’s all in the name of charity. There will be plenty of prized bikes to admire, stands to browse and opportunities to wise up with interactive safety sessions about responsible riding, all while raising money for vital causes.

Family fun for a good cause at Durham BikeWise 2019

Youngsters can try their hand at riding with the Mini Bike Club, run by Durham Police Motorcycle Section and, if we’re lucky, visitors will be treated to another instalment of the annual dog show – a the fantastic display of canine cleverness from the expertly-trained police dogs.

Keep your eyes peeled for some special guests on the day because legends from the biking world regularly put in an appearance at Durham BikeWise. Renowned stunt rider Dave Coates has attended the event annually for more than two decades and acclaimed Isle of Man TT racer John McGuinness has also been known to pop by and show his support, so you never know who you might rub shoulders with!

Over the last few years the air support police helicopter has put in an appearance, too, much to the delight of younger visitors, but you’ll have to be there on the day to find out if the chopper will be dropping in for 2019!

There’s plenty more to see and do, with motorcycle clubs setting up stands for the day, lots of food and drink stalls to refuel at and all kinds of competitions to get involved in, making for a fun family day out in Durham – all we need now is for the summer sun to shine!
