Bulldog Bash – Council Rejects Police Request For Licence Review

May 26, 2009


🙂 The request by Warwickshire Police for a review of the 10 year licence granted last year has been rejected by Stratford Council 🙂

Police were attempting, again, to get this years event cancelled in the interests of ‘public safety’ for the people of Warwickshire.

Stratford council rejected the application as they felt there were insufficient grounds for justifying a review, and overturning last years decision to grant a ten year licence for the event.

I’m pretty damn sure the organisers are well happy with this result 🙂

Ride To Work Day – 15/07/09

May 20, 2009

Ride To Work Day Image

As a part of National Motorcycle Week, July 15th is this years Ride To Work Day.

Every year the motorcycle industry celebrates and promotes the benefits of riding a motorcycle with the National Motorcycle Week, and the Ride To Work Day is one way of trying to get the message across that motorcycles are the best way to get to work on your daily commute.

The week is traditionally an occasion when those who are passionate about motorcycling try to spread the word by holding local events, converting friends, speaking to the press or just getting out and about on their bikes.  The aims of National Motorcycle week are as follows.

  • To demonstrate to a wide audience the number of motorcyclists in the UK
  • Emphasise that riders are from all walks of life and are all ages
  • That riding has social, environmental and economic benefits.
  • So on Ride To Work Day, get your bike out of the garage, or from under it’s cover and get out there and ride, instead of taking your car.  You are bound to enjoy your commute more if you do!
