Bikers descend on Southend

Echo: Bikers descend on Southend Bikers descend on Southend

THOUSANDS of motorcyclists descended on Southend for an annual bikers’ rally today.

A cavalcade of cycles – from Harley Davidsons to scooters – rode into Southend for the 15th annual Southend Shakedown.

The free event brought tonnes of bikers together to enjoy demonstrations, rallies, and stands along Marine Parade for the Shakedown, which is organised by London’s Ace Cafe.

Event organiser Darren Williams said: “It’s a way of giving something back to the motorcycle community as a free event and we’ve got a great number of people down here with all different types of models coming from all over the country.

“Southend is a lovely place to host the event, which is always very relaxed and family orientated.

“This is our fifteenth year here at Southend and it’s always very well supported. We’d like to thank the town for hosting us too.”

Always a great event with a good atmosphere, one sour note was the cyclist who moaned about the bikes being parked on the cycle path, if you are reading this it is for ONE day and is a charity event get over yourself you jumped up pompous little gentlemen sausage.

Be nice to have a supercar event!

Bearing in mind the Council made the road too narrow for cyclists to share with cars, and promoted cycling on the seafront; coupled with all the comments in here and by the public in general that cyclists should be on the cycle path and not in the road... how was that cyclist supposed to ride along the seafront?

Maybe it'd be nice for all these visiting bikers to not have parked (illegally) on the cycle path. It would have improved the image of motorcyclists if they were being seen to be obeying the law ;-)

That was for the illegal one that was planned without the consent of the council and police, an exception was made for the shakedown as it wad arranged with the council and police, it is also a charity event whilst the illegal car cruise was not, the shakedown also had marshals whilst the illegal one did not, the illegal one also boasted of "taking over Southend" whilst the Shakedown dose not.

Let's re-phrase it.

The Council have made conditions worse for cyclists elsewhere, and providing a single narrow track along the seafront dedicated to cyclists. An Easter bank holiday is just the sort of time the Council expect families to be on the seafront cycling - so one of the few days you'd really want the cycle track open.

Having the track closed so bikers could park on it, and not expect an upset cyclist to complain, is roughly the same as saying "A127 closed into Southend on Easter Monday to provide parking area" and then not expect drivers to complain about the massive congestion caused elsewhere.



I'm bowing out of the discussion now as
1) I see both sides of the argument
2) I believe the provision of that cycle track to be the actual issue - cyclists would have been fine down there with the old road layout today.
3) As usual on a Bank Holiday I stayed well clear of Southend.

Seems stopmoaning1 should act as his/her name and STOP moaning!

The cruise that was planned failed to inform the police and council, they had no plans apart from turn up and park wherever they could this would have caused major issues for people trying to drive along the seafront who were not part of the illegal cruise.

The injunction was to prevent such a thing happening, the cruise was called off no traffic problems happened so how can that be a fail?

Saw a load of motorcycles on their way into Southend while driving out of town this morning. Looked a great day for a ride - dare I say a nice spring day?

Hope the Bikers enjoyed the day out, let's hope the weather continues to improve so all of us can go out and enjoy ourselves.

Unfortunately, cyclists think they own the roads even though they're the only road users who don't pay road tax towards their maintenance and improvement.

I think we all know if cyclists were given the option of paying 100 quid a year to have a say in roads developments and laws or shut up but carry on using them without charge then we all know which option they would take...

I believe I have the suggestion thst could replace this event which would benefit the community more. One the attendees meet up in one agreed location. They do their chatting what ever they do. Then with a police escort they drive to hospital homeless shelters. Children homes and such like. . Any parking that would have been charged were donated to charity. Then the driver would spend time with the children make them laugh and make donation of Easter eggs. Then following their time they woukd be intergrated to the roads under police control. Worked great up north and think. This give a better impact. To everyone in the community. Sorry about spelling all done. On phone

And of course there isn't a single cyclist in the land that also owns a car and therefore pays the Road Tax/Vehicle Excise Duty is there?

As I own two cars, does that mean I get twice as much say as someone who only owns one car, or does the fact that I also have a bike negate one of the cars on which I pay VED?

Having a bicycle doesn't negate the VED you're paying on that car, it actually increases the value of the VED paid in to the general tax pot because you're not wearing the roads out with a heavy vehicle (and your council tax/VAT on the bicycle went into the general tax pot that paid for the road construction and ongoing maintenance).

I pay VED on 2 cars and a motorbike. Therefore I get even more say in the roads ;-)

I went to the event yesterday and we walked from the Kursal to the Arches and back again with the children, they loved the bikes.
All the bikers were fantastic and I didn't see one person acting irresponsibly, it was a pleasure to be out and looking at all the gleaming bikes.

I'm not even going to comment on the cycle thing as it was so minor, it isn't worth getting worked up over.

I must admit I would like to say also that the ACE Cafe Marshalls were fantastic and this year what capped it off for me was that the Traffic Wardens on duty kept one side of Marine Parade clear for pedestrians which was really helpfull as in previous years it has been difficult to walk due to too many bikes and onlookers in the same area.

I think the 'Car Cruisers' have a lot to learn about this event and if they had organised their event like this the Council wouldn't of had to spend thousands of pounds of the tax payers money getting the injunction.

Glad the event still comes to Southend and well done to everybody involved.
