Thousands of people descended on Bournemouth over the Bank Holiday weekend to witness the first ever Wheels Festival.
Everything wheel-related imaginable was taking place in the town and along the seafront. From classic cars to Monster Trucks, unicycle sessions, Formula 1 cars and BMX extreme displays. The highlight was the jump over Bournemouth Pier by freestyle motocross rider, Dan Whitby from Norfolk. He celebrated becoming the first person to perform this daredevil stunt on Sunday. It had also been planned to take place on Saturday, but was called off due to the poor weather conditions.

Organised by Bournemouth Borough Council, the free festival was heralded as a great success. It ended with a family Bears on Bikes ride to raise money for the Round Table Children’s Wish
