Bikers prepare for third annual Mablethorpe motorcycle festival
BIKE enthusiasts are preparing to don their leathers and wheel their way down to the third annual Mablethorpe motorcycle festival.
The event takes place on March 24 and looks set to be bigger and better than ever with activities this year centred around Queen's Park.
Stunt riders will be showing off their skills throughout the day and those wanting to have a go themselves can try out a special wheelie machine.
Organiser Gary Barnes said: "Queen's Park has a lot of facilities which will be open on the day so the event will be a real family day out, not just something for mum or dad.

"We will have about 25 stalls ranging from traders to charities as well as advanced road groups, the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership and hopefully Honda Racing from Louth.
"We will also have information about a new blood bikers group which is currently being set up to transport blood around the county."
The event runs between 11and and 5pm and admission is free. Donations will be welcomed however, towards the cost of putting on the event.
Various owners clubs will also be present on the day including Triumph and Harley Davidson and Lincolnshire Air Ambulance will have a stall.
Gary added: "We will also have information about a new group myself and my partner Tina started in the summer. We are trying to get people to come along and have a bit of a social meet in Mablethorpe.
"We want to build it up this year as somewhere else for bikers to ride to."
Those wanting to make a weekend of it in Mablethorpe will also be able to watch the sand racing on Sunday, March 25 which takes place on the beach at the end of Mablethorpe High Street.
The event is also free to watch but any donations will again be welcomed to help with the cost of staging the events.
