THOUSANDS of bikers are due to travel to Barrow to celebrate the life of Dave Myers.

Riders are due to head to the Hairy Biker's hometown ahead of a tribute concert to the TV chef.

Plans for a ride up from London have been set out with a convoy due to start out in the capital before stops along the way that will allow others from across the country to join.

'Dave Day' is due to see people gather at the Barrow Raiders ground for a celebration event on June 8.

As well as the concert at Barrow Raiders' ground, there will be a stage at Barrow Town Hall with bands playing including Lancaster-based Massive Wagons.
Bikers will head from the Ace Cafe in London at around 8am, arriving outside Barrow Town Hall before 4pm.

According to organisers, stops on the way are due to include service stations at Oxford and Knutsford, the National Motorcycle Museum outside Birmingham, with Cafe Ambio at the M6 junction 36 due to be the penultimate stop at around 2.30pm.

Organisers said accommodation is 'booking up' fast.

Announcing the concert earlier this month, the rugby club said: "We have a chart-topping band already lined up but we are seeking other bands to help fill the day and evening with the expectation that you will be performing 45 minute slots.

"It promises to be a fantastic day with the council and Barrow BID also arranging events in and around the Town Hall and Forum 28."

Bikers have already shown their respect for Dave by participating in a ride out in East Yorkshire.

Thousands ventured from Beverley to Scarborough in East Yorkshire to honour the legacy of Barrow-born Hairy Biker.

Planning for the special 'Dave Day' in Barrow to celebrate the TV chef's life started after the idea was floated at a get-together following his funeral.

Long-time friend Graham Twyford said Dave's wife Liliana had suggested the idea of a memorial day at the event.

The Hairy Biker's death was met with an outpouring of emotion in Barrow, with well-wishers paying tribute in a book of condolence stationed at the Forum theatre.
