The route for Dave Day next month has gone through a late change in response to policing concerns.

More than 10,000 motorbike riders will be making the journey from London to Barrow to celebrate the life of Dave Myers on June 8.

Their final meeting point was previously scheduled to be at Cafe Ambio in Crooklands but event organiser Jason Woodcock that this would have to change.

He said: "The form-up point is going to be the Moto Services at Burton-in-Kendal on the M6 North.

"For those of you who know the services, they are reasonably small - however, before you all say that you're never going to fit there, it has already been taken into account.

"There are service roads and side roads that are also going to be used to house the bikes should the numbers go through the roof."

The Mail:

Jason explained that, for those travelling from Scotland or the North East, they will still be asked to head for Cafe Ambio, where the police will then direct them to the M6.

Six police motorbikes have been confirmed to provide an escort to ensure the visitors reach their intended points.

People riding 125cc motorbikes will now be meeting at Lakeland Wildlife Oasis before joining the larger procession for the final miles.

The changes have been made due to 'policing concerns' with Jason adding: "There are concerns with the number of bikes coming off the motorway and trying to navigate the two roundabouts.

"It prevents the police having to stop traffic from the north going onto that roundabout - it's just safer and easier for everybody."

The riders will travel along the A590, Park Road, Abbey Road and Ramsden Square before moving onto Duke Street towards Barrow Town Hall.

The car park directly behind the town hall will be used by riders not planning on staying overnight.

Those who intend to stay will be directed towards Waterside car park, where the council will be putting on 'extra security' to ensure the safety of the motorbikes once left.
