Massive turnout for Hornsea Biker Event

Huge crowds descended on Hornsea for the annual Biker Event last Sunday.

People lined the streets surrounding Hall Garth Park, where hundreds of riders arrived after setting off in a convoy from Hornsea Garden Centre in the morning.

The park was packed with stalls and the main band stage featured a number of top regional rock bands throughout the day, including Fallen Fields, the Jackdaws and Jack Scantily.

Proceeds from this year’s event are going to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

After the event, the organisers, Hornsea Foundation, thanked all the riders, sponsors, traders, volunteers, public, artists and comperes.

A spokesman added: “We have all had an amazing day, and we could not have days like this without the support from you all – but also a huge thank you to our amazing team who work extremely hard to make the Biker Event happen every year.”

Hornsea’s deputy mayor, Councillor Laura Embleton, who rode into town with the bikers, said: “It was a fantastic day – so well organised and even more bikes than before. A huge well done to all involved.”
