Bikers heading to Southend


Life President
Dec 10, 2006
The 17th annual Southend biker Shakedown will depart from The Ace Cafe Stonebridge, in north-west London, at 10.30am.
The fundraiser will see hundreds of bikers arrive at Southend seafront for a family-focused day out.
Now the trouble with this is that it raises thousands for mainly childrens charities, and if you haven't seen it, it's worth going down to the seafront to see all types of motor bikes. You even get old mods and rockers talking and admiring each others bikes and scooters. Now in the past, Southend council and the wardens and the police would give a pass to the bikers and let them park all the way along the golden mile without giving a ticket, unless parked in a really silly or dangerous place. Fair enough. Now in the last few years, the council have been sending down their full force of traffic wardens and making it a big earner for the council coffers. The last two years there have been very heated exchanges between bikers and wardens.
Come on Southend. This is a much loved event, it raises so much money for good causes. Those bikers have to park somewhere, and they do their bikes up to be seen by everyone, not to be stuck in a car park and taking all the cars spaces. Give them a pass and let everyone have a great day down the seafront.
The bikers are already talking about finding another seaside town that will be kinder to them. They spend a lot of money here on the day, which is a massive boost to the seaside traders. Let's not lose this great event.
