Hey everyone! On Saturday, March 10th 2018, we opened our doors and filled the car park with lots of attractions. Stunt shows, games, prizes, food, celebrities- it was all there and everything went off better than we could have hoped. The weather was a bit wet but it was great to see that it didn’t deter anyone and the car park was packed with guests!
It was great to see so many bikers despite the weather. The positivity and the happiness of our guests on the day made it all worth the hard work putting the event together. It was estimated that between 5000 – 7000 people came down and braved the weather to take part in GhostBikes’s first open day.
The stunt shows were fantastic. Steve Colley and Two Brothers did so well despite the conditions and put on some spectacular performances.
We had loads of guests set up in the car park to show off their stuff as well. LV Custom London were there showing off their phenomenal bike workmanship. Ribble Valley ATV and Motorcycles brought one of their Polaris to show off. We had Blood Bikes, TEAMFOUNDS with their F2 sidecar, fancy scooters, Bulgaria Bike Shipping the Extreme Wheelie Machine, DynoJet and so much more.
Inside the shop we had The Racing Bug who were insanely popular and were running non-stop, Valentino Rossi’s racing leathers as well as biking celebrities Lee Johnston and John McGuiness, both some of the nicest blokes you’ll meet and they were meeting, greeting, signing stuff and even did a Q&A.
And our marshals from MAG were fantastic as well and thanks to their efforts we were able to neatly accommodate all of our guests with no dramas. Everyone did such a great job- a massive heart-felt thank you to all of our staff, suppliers, volunteers, charities and companies that supported us. A huge thank you to our neighbours Club 3000 Bingo Preston, Sika, Liquid Plastics, Eden Boys School, Rhodi Group and FlipOut Preston for letting our guests park their cars and bikes for free yesterday at their car parks. Friends, family and especially the customers for making our first open day at GhostBikes such a huge success. Thank you all so very much from all of us here at GhostBikes!
Thanks for reading, everyone! Until next time!
