British Cricket Star Got the Biking Fever

Another famous face has found its two-wheeled passion, sharing his experience in a motorcycle saddle in order to promote motorcycling and scootering. British sports celebrity and television star Darren Gough is the latest to show his support for the Get On campaign, joining Blue’s Simon Webbe .

Gough has taken his CBT (Compulsory Basic Training to be able to ride a 125cc bike) as part of the Get On campaign. The Cricket star says that he has been a motorcycles’ fan ever since saw a Harley Davidson while on Tour in India several years ago, but could not get on two wheels too soon due to sporting commitments, Clutch and Chrome reported.

The Get On campaign, which is being supported by the strap line ‘Life’s better on two wheels’, promotes the freedom, fun, flexibility and sociability of biking, along with the time saving, accessibility, cost and environmental advantages.

“I’ve always been really interested in bikes but having played cricket all my life, I’ve never really had the chance to learn to ride. Loads of the England lads like Freddie Flintoff, Mathew Hoggard and Craig White all ride and always talk about it – so the talk of biking was often around me,” Gough was quoted as saying by the Get On website.

“If like me you then want to take it a step further there’s all the advice that you need on how to take your test, what equipment you need, what bikes will suit you and so much more. Just riding a 125cc was so much fun so I can’t wait till I’ve got my full license and I can ride the Harley I’ve been wanting for so long now,” added Gough.
