A keen motorcyclist from Bicester bagged her ultimate Biking Dream as part of a nationwide Christmas campaign run by Bennetts motorcycle insurance.

The 12 Dreams of Christmas campaign presents one biking dream prize a day from December 11 to 24 and Mrs Newstead, who is part of a motorcycle loving family, submitted her dream on the Bennetts Biking Dreams website to own a new bike jacket and trousers.

Her passion for biking stems from being a pillion passenger behind her husband, but since he suffered a crash seven years ago and a broken leg last year, he can no longer take her out onto the roads.

Mrs Newstead said: “It was a big shock to hear I’d won – it gave me goose bumps!

“My current jacket is completely worn out and with Christmas approaching, a new one is completely out of the question.

“I’m hoping to take my test in spring 2014 so this will help me to prepare for that.

“As soon as I have my licence, I’ll be able to get out onto the open roads with my husband and son. I can’t wait.”

Bennetts is donating £1 for every dream entered to the Bennetts Better Biking Fund, which will be donated to various UK motorcycle-related charities once the total reaches £5,000.

Bennetts’ marketing director, Hannah Squirrell said: “We fulfil various biking dreams throughout the year however the 12 Dreams of Christmas is our personal favourite Biking Dreams campaign.

“There’s no better time of year to deliver a surprise gift and some added seasonal cheer.”
