Bike1066 Review – oh I do like to be beside the Sea Side
On Monday Holidaysafe attended and exhibited at the annual Bike1066 festival in Hastings, East Sussex. Although many members of the team had attended the event as visitors over the years, it was the first time that we had set up a stand and welcomed questions and feedback from members of the public (in return for some sweet treats of course).
The day was absolutely fantastic – the sun was shining, there were some spectacular bikes and exhibitors on show, and of course the freebies were lovely. However, the highlight of the day was definitely getting to meet and chat with so many fellow bikers from around the UK, to understand their motorcycle travel needs and where we can help them.
The event organisers were expecting around 76,000 visitors to the 2014 event, but with the lovely sunshine and mention on Radio 2, I’m sure this figure was surpassed by the scene on the sea front throughout the day.
As the Bike1066 festival marks the start of the Motorcycle summer season, we decided to kick off our own celebrations by offering one lucky biker the chance to win a Go Pro Hero 3 head cam. To enter, all people had to do was visit the Holidaysafe stand, answer four simple questions and provide an email address so we can contact them if they win.
The competition proved very successful, but if you didn’t have a chance to enter then don’t worry, we will still be accepting entrants at the Bexhill Motofest
event on the 27th July 2014. (More details to follow on the blog). For full competition terms and conditions, please visit our original competition blog
