On your bikes! It's national ride to work day.

BIKERS - make tomorrow your ride to work day.

Cleveland Police are backing National Motorcycling Week this week with a National Ride to Work Day on Wednesday.

Cleveland Police Deputy Chief Constable, Derek Bonnard has supported Motorcyclists by donning his helmet to ride to work.

He said: "Not only is motorcycling a convenient, environmentally-friendly and efficient mode of transport, when used correctly and with the right protective equipment it can turn a tedious drive to work into a much more enjoyable experience."

Bike section officers will provide a full VIP style escort and ride out through Stockton, Thornaby and Middlesbrough, finishing at Punch Street, Cannon Park, Middlesbrough, where riders can have a free bikers' breakfast and a cuppa before making their way to work in their own time.

Sergeant Nick Walker, head of Cleveland Police motorcycle section said: "We are keen to support and host this event which was a precedent set by this force and still remains unique for National Ride to Work Day.

"Our bike section is positive in supporting motorcyclists, and we feel that by doing something such as this it will have a much greater impact for National Ride to Work Day than people travelling individually."

Any kind of motorcycle is welcome. Meet up at 7am on Wednesday at Preston Hall and Museum, Yarm Road, Eaglescliffe for a 7.30am departure.
