Dave and Si are back carving up the roads of the world on their motorbikes in search of adventurous food and foodie adventures. Their first book was a top-five bestseller and book two delivers more of the same: more laid-back, interesting food, more travel tales and fascinating stories, more humour and lots more fun. Their infectious enthusiasm and natural charm makes them a joy to watch and their delicious, relaxed food is a pleasure to cook and eat. The Hairy Bikers are hungry for more ...

About David Myers

Born and bred in Barrow-in-Furness, Dave Myers’ versatile skills have taken him to some unusual places. He worked as a furnaceman in a steelworks whilst a student, to finance a degree and postgraduate studies in Fine Arts at Goldsmiths, where he studied egg tempera and the work of the Old Masters.

On graduating, Dave joined the BBC as a make-up artist, specialising in prosthetics.  He went on to work on numerous feature films and high-profile television series, notably LIVES AND LOVES OF A SHE DEVIL, PRIME SUSPECT and the BBC1 hit series SPOOKS.  His career has taken him from Hollywood to the African deserts.  He’s also travelled extensively away from work, picking up recipes and cultures almost as fast as he’s made friends all over the world, not the least of whom is Simon King, Dave’s boon travelling companion and the other half of the Hairy Biking duo.

For BBC2 they have made two series of THE HAIRY BIKERS’ COOKBOOK, a third series called THE HAIRY BIKERS RIDE AGAIN, a one-off special, THE HAIRY BIKERS COME HOME and the four-part series THE HAIRY BAKERS which won audiences of over four million viewers.  This was rounded off with a one hour HAIRY BAKERS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL drawing audiences of around 5 million. Meanwhile Dave shocked himself by winning CELEBRITY MASTERMIND, and he and Si came a creditable second on THE WEAKEST LINK.

2009 has been busy for both, with a giant 30 part series for BBC2 called THE HAIRY BIKERS\' FOOD TOUR OF BRITAIN which will screen this Autumn.  The future looks equally busy with another Christmas special commissioned called THE HAIRY BIKERS TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS and a major 6 x 1 hour prime time series for BBC2 entitled MUMS KNOW BEST.

THE HAIRY BIKERS have written two books to date, published by Michael Joseph/Penguin and available on Amazon, with two more books in the pipeline for publication in the near future.  Dave and Si are both Members of the Food Writers’ Guild.

Dave lives on Roa Island, in Morecambe Bay, and is a past Club Champion of the Boat Club there. (http://www.hairybikers.com/)

About Simon King

Author Web Link: http://www.hairybikers.com/

Hailing from North East England, Simon King is a big, blonde-bearded biker with an infectious laugh, and a charm and sense of humour that’s a skeleton key when it comes to getting into people’s hearts and homes.  This easy congeniality and warmth served him well for years in his work as a First Assistant Director and Locations Manager for film and television (including the HARRY POTTER series of films), but his passions lie elsewhere.

A love of food was encouraged early by his family and particularly Si’s father, who would bring back exotic ingredients from his voyages with the Royal Navy, and Simon’s enthusiasm is matched by his own children’s willingness to try new kinds of food. 

Si and Dave are not professional chefs so much as life-long foodies; they met through work on the set of a drama (appropriately enough on a Catherine Cookson adaptation) and they take every opportunity they can to pack their panniers and head off in search of authentic culinary and cultural experiences in all corners of the world.

For BBC2 they have made two series of THE HAIRY BIKERS’ COOKBOOK, a third series called THE HAIRY BIKERS RIDE AGAIN, a one-off special, THE HAIRY BIKERS COME HOME and the four-part series THE HAIRY BAKERS which won audiences of over four million viewers.  This was rounded off with a one hour HAIRY BAKERS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL drawing audiences of around 5 million. Meanwhile Si and Dave came a creditable second on THE WEAKEST LINK.

2009 has been busy for both, with a giant 30 part series for BBC2 called THE HAIRY BIKERS' FOOD TOUR OF BRITAIN which will screen this Autumn.  The future looks equally busy with another Christmas special commissioned called THE HAIRY BIKERS TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS and a major 6 x 1 hour prime time series for BBC2 entitled MUMS KNOW BEST.

THE HAIRY BIKERS have written two books to date, published by Michael Joseph/Penguin and available on Amazon, with two more books in the pipeline for publication in the near future.  Dave and Si are both Members of the Food Writers' Guild.

Si lives near Newcastle with his wife and three children.  (http://www.hairybikers.com/)
