Simon Webbe Makes Special Apperance at Motorcycle Live

This year’s Carole Nash Motorcycle Live event is centered around the idea of encouraging people to take life by the handlebars. While licensed riders took part in the Yamaha Off Road Experience, two-wheel novices were at the Get On Arena and kids got their first taste of bikes at My First Honda Licence.

Kids as young as five were riding mini motorcycles under the watch of qualified instructors. Having tackled the tarmac, kids and teenagers can move on to the Suzuki Off-Road Experience, getting down and dirty on the 50m x 10m inflatable lined dirt track.

Singer Simon Webbe, classical boyband Blake and TV presenter Sarah Cawood made a special appearance in the Get On Arena. The guys have all completed their motorcycle tests with the Get On campaign, while Sarah is just starting out.

“The instructors here are lovely,” said Sarah after her initial session. “They really talked me through it and because they’re not nervous, that rubbed off on me and I wasn’t nervous. I really felt like I was in good, safe hands. This time next year I’ll be riding a Harley!”

“This year we really wanted to push the message that the Event is for everyone – all ages, all levels, bike fans, new riders and families. To walk around the event and see people of all ages and experience getting involved is simply wonderful,”
stated Finlay McAllan, Managing Director of Event organisers, MCI Exhibitions.

Carole Nash Motorcycle Live runs until 5 December 2010. Tickets are £17 for adults, £10 for Seniors, £5 for children aged 11-16 and kids under 10 go free. All riding experiences are free. The Ramp’d Up Freestyle Motocross Arena is £5 per adult and £2.50 for children 5 - 16.
