IMPORTANT. Due to the government guidelines on the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to cancel this event. We are hoping to postpone the event to September 2019. further details will be given later.
On this website you will find all the details for the light parade. There's information for the members of public as well as the Goldwing owners who want to take part in the event.
In the Goldwing Community there is already a number of established Light Parades throughout the UK. These can be found at Hunstanton, Shrewsbury, Llandudno, Berwick, Scarborough & Skegness. Now for the third year we are proud to announce the Whitley Bay Goldwing Light Parade 2020 to be held on Saturday 28th March.
Michael Price is the Events and Runs organiser for Border Wings, he came up with the idea of having our own North East event. Border Wings is part of the Goldwing Owners Club of Great Britain and this will now make Whitley Bay, the 4th light parade run under the GWOCGB umbrella.
The Goldwings will come from all parts of the UK. Many of the bikes have state of the art lighting systems, computer controlled and cost thousands of pounds that adorn their bikes. Its truly a sight to behold, don't take my word for it, search on you tube for Goldwing light parade and you will find a whole host of videos to watch. But its even better to come along yourself and see the event.
The event will be in two parts. The first being a static display and we are pleased to announce this will again be on The Links right next door to Spanish City between 10am - 4pm. You will be able to get up close to the bikes, talk to the owners and ask questions. The main part though is the light parade itself. The bikes will start to arrive at 6.30pm and the parade will leave at 7.30pm from the Briardene Car park. The route chosen will be to turn left and go along the coast, through Cullercoats to Tynemouth, where the bikes will turn round on Front Street and head back along the same route, returning back to the Car park which is located is located on the A193 coast road between Spanish City and St Mary's Lighthouse.
