Mount bikes for week­end fes­ti­val

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

MO­TOR­CY­CLISTS are head­ing to York for a big week­end of new at­trac­tions and old favourites at a free fam­ily fes­ti­val.

The in­au­gu­ral Mount Brown hill climb on Satur­day morn­ing will fea­ture riders and their ma­chines pit­ting their might against the in­cline in a bid to crack a nom­i­nated time.

Vis­i­tors are en­cour­aged to bring a fold- up chair and watch the ac­tion.

Peo­ple who would rather be on their bikes can join the Ulysses Club back- road rides for an af­ter­noon cruise to Bev­er­ley, Toodyay or Meck­er­ing.

The main street will be closed through­out the af­ter­noon for buskers and street en­ter­tain­ment, the mo­tor­cy­cle Dyno and show and shine dis­play in the Town Hall.

A high­light of the fes­ti­val will be the Har­ley- David­son free fam­ily con­cert from 5.30pm to 10.30pm on Avon Ter­race, with per­for­mances by lo­cal act Chris Gibbs Trio fol­lowed by The Rough Housers.

On Sun­day, the ac­tion revs up again at 10am with trade stalls along Avon Ter­race fea­tur­ing some of the lat­est new bikes from ma­jor brands, cloth­ing, jew­ellery, hel­mets and ac­ces­sories.

Other show­stop­pers will fea­ture Yamaha stunt rider Dave McKenna, freestyle mo­tocross demos and mini jumps, plus a vin­tage mar­ket of up- cy­cled and re­cy­cled wares on Sun­day in Peace Park. Also in the park will be the kids mo­tor­bike rides on a spe­cially de­signed track cour­tesy of Mo­tor­cy­cle WA.

The New In­dian Cafe will of­fer dis­plays of new In­dian bikes, along with re­fresh­ments.

Char­ity riders for be­yond­blue are asked to meet at 8.30am on Sun­day at Mid­land Gate Shop­ping Cen­tre carpark for 9am and 10am runs at $ 10 per rider and $ 5 per pil­lion.

Camp­ing is avail­able on the York Re­cre­ation Cen­tre’s hockey oval on Fri­day and Satur­day nights of the Fes­ti­val week­end.
