Martyn Paterson, divisional director and deputy managing director at Loch Fyne Oysters, said: “As a prominent business within Argyll, we are keen to raise awareness of the road safety issues surrounding the A83.

“We are delighted to be holding our third Bike Fyne event and look forward to building on last year’s success and welcoming bikers from across the UK to Loch Fyne.”

Ducati Glasgow added: “We heard about the success of the previous Bike Fyne events therefore wanted to get involved.

“We want Scotland’s bikers to have fun while riding safely, so this event is a great opportunity for anyone to increase their knowledge regarding motorcycle safety; what can be done to reduce accidents and what to do should an accident occur.

“There are a lot of passionate motorcycle enthusiasts in Scotland, everyone knows one and we would urge you all, biker or a friend of, to attend for a great day out.”
