Diverse Abilities judge Bike of the Night at Poole Quay Dream Machines

Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, joined the Dream Machines event on Poole Quay organised by BCP Council as guest judges for “Bike of the Night”.

Jeff, Pete and Martin who are supported by the charity’s Supported Living Service are regular spectators at the event and had the opportunity to view the bikes on display along the quay front. Together they chose a bike as the evening’s Bike of the Night, and to go forward to the Bike of the Year competition in September.

The winner was Simon Gracia with his Harley Davidson (pictured with Pete and Jeff). Jeff, Pete and Martin agreed this was their favourite as it looked fast and they liked the style and colour. Simon is a regular visitor to the event and was pleased to be going home with the Bike of the Night title.

Diverse Abilities Supported Living Service offers 24-hour care, seven days a week, 365 days a year to adults with physical and learning disabilities who are supported in their own home. Their personal support workers assist every individual with day-to-day activities and to take part in their hobbies and interests.

Lauren Kyprianou, personal support assistant, commented: “The guys love coming to bike night every week. It’s a great opportunity to wander along the quay looking at the bikes, catch up with friends and end the evening with a drink at the pub. It was fantastic to be so involved in this week’s event and we’re looking forward to seeing how Simon’s bike does in Bike of the Year this September.”

Dream Machines takes place every Tuesday until the end of September on Poole Quay from 6 until 10pm, with this year’s Bike of the Year competition taking place on Tuesday, September 26.
