HAIRY Biker Dave Myers enjoys a trip down memory lane as he goes back to the streets he grew up on.

Visiting his old house in Devon Street, Barrow, 59-year-old Myers talked to BBC Morning Live about his childhood memories that made him the man he is today.

The celebrity chef talks about his lifelong motorcycle passion coming from his dad, who had a BSA Bantam and would let him ride it as a kid.

“It was round the corner in the backstreet that us kids would have fun. My dad had a BSA Bantam and he would let me climb up on the tank and I’d sit holding the handle bars up to our back door.

“As soon as I was old enough, I knew I was going to have a motorbike, but until then, I had to make do with my push bike.”

Just 15 minutes from his childhood house was Morecambe Bay and Roa Island where he and his dad would go fishing after cruising on the open road on his bike, which allowed him to forget about any childhood worries such as his mum getting diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when he was just 8.

Myer just wasn’t a star in the kitchen, but was top of his year at Cambridge Primary School.

Talking to the primary pupils, Myers amazes them with how different school was back in the day. He said: “There were 40 in the class and 89 in a year. I was top of the year with an A- in English, but was only let down by my spelling.”

Later in life, Myers spread his wings to go and study at arts school in London where his teenage friend Graham Twyford studied fine arts.

Reunited on Roa Island, Graham said: “You’ve always been a cheerful character and you had problems that I think we weren’t aware of and the art was a kind of release for you.”

Looking back on his childhood, Myers said: “The day I left Barrow was such a mixture of excitement and apprehension, but I knew deep down that I had to leave. This is the place that made me who I am I will always be a Barrow boy at heart.”
