Lisa Mcdowell said: The whole town embraces the night and I think people who haven’t been would be suprised just how many people attend the event.”
“The town belongs to bikers for the evening and is fully supported by the police. There is something for everyone to enjoy young and old and everyone joins in,” she added.
On the night, the majority of shops and cafe’s stay open to support the annual event and organisers promise plenty of food, with Barbeque’s and plenty of drinks and refreshments available for thirsty bikers.
The high street is closed to cars for the evening and soon becomes full of trikes, bikes and scooter’s.
The family friendly event will host entertainment and live music all evening, allowing the bikers opportunity to show off their bikes, sharing their biking tales and knowledge.
Local band, aptly named, ‘The Tuesday’s’ will provide some of the entertainment on the night and there will be trials bike displays from special guests, world class trials riders, Emma Bristow and James Fry in Buttercross car park.
In a first for the event, this year, the bike night will also welcome Young BMX champion rider Adam Moorland, who will be showing off his pedal-power skills.
