Andrei trials for Hatherleigh
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

July 14, 2009: Bikes R' Us ... at least this week they are for the children at the Primary School where a bike theme is running all week. Today, at the Community Centre, Devon trials bike star Andrei Burton performed for the entire school while colleague Ray explained why taking up riding a bike is good for you and the planet, and the importance of wearing a helmet while doing so. Andrei's tricks included jumping banners, acrobatics on a set of platforms and finally doing a set of 180s above teacher Rose after dropping from a great height next to her. Andrei has been booked to entertain at the Tour of Britain start in Hatherleigh on the morning of September 18th (and at the race finish the day before in Bideford).
