Other facts about Easter!!

The Easter Bunny

In Anglo-Saxon times the hare was an important symbol of fertility so it played a starring role in the pagan festival of Eostre. In fact Eostre was named after the Saxon goddess of spring. Legend claims that this mystical goddess found a wounded bird and turned it into a hare so it could survive the winter. When this very same hare found it could lay eggs it made a gift of its eggs to the goddess who had protected him. And so the tradition of the Easter hare, or bunny, as it became, was born.

Chocolate Easter eggs 

Eggs have long been seen as an important fertility symbol, and are associated with the ‘rebirth’ signalled by the coming of spring. When people first starting giving eggs as offerings and gifts at Easter time, they used birds’ eggs. They were painted bright colours to echo the vibrancy of the colours of spring after the darkness of winter.

Hot cross buns

The tradition of eating hot cross buns on Good Friday has its roots even further back than early Christianity. Buns marked with a cross were eaten by the Saxons during their spring celebrations – it’s believed that the bun represented the moon and the cross the moon’s quarters. Christians continued the tradition but to them the cross symbolises the Jesus’ crucifixion. 

Simnel cake

The special fruit cake eaten at Easter, known as Simnel cake, is steeped in traditional symbolism. Traditionally the cake has a layer of marzipan on top and is decorated with marzipan balls – these symbolise the disciples, though Judas is left out and only 11 balls are added to the cake.

Stay on track – hire a motorbike Sat Nav with Superbike Rental

So you’ve hired the motorbike, you’ve chosen the route and you’re ready and raring to go. But what happens if you miss that turn, or you find yourself in a traffic jam and don’t know the area well enough to deviate from the plan?

Just as Sat Navs have revolutionised the way a driver plans their journey, a motorcycle GPS navigation system can make a rider’s trip a lot less stressful. A good portable motorbike Sat Nav will tell you where to go, how far away you are and how long it will take to reach your destination. It will also help you avoid heavy traffic and provide you with alternative routes if you do find yourself getting stuck.

In fact, if you wanted to, you could plan your entire trip with your motorcycle GPS, taking in food and petrol stops, overnight accommodation and places of interest.

Superbike Rental’s motorcycles can not only be hired to ride in the UK, but to explore Europe. At our base just off the M25 in Brentwood, Essex, we have a wide range of superbikes, sportsbikes and tourers, all of which are recent models and maintained to the highest possible standard. All of our rental prices include VAT and full comprehensive insurance to travel in the UK.

Many of our bikes have navigated Pyrenees, Alps, Barcelona, Milan, the Italian Lakes, St Tropez and many more. If you are planning a trip abroad, we will sort your European insurance and breakdown cover*, leaving you free to plan your touring holiday.

Superbike Rental also has a selection of high quality motorcycle Sat Navs and mounts available to hire, including: http://www.superbikerental.co.uk

You can choose the route you want to take, whether it’s the fastest way to get from A to B, one that avoids motorways or for those of you touring, the most scenic. With some, you can even plan a winding route!

Bluetooth technology feeds the instructions from the Sat Nav through to the rider’s helmet.
