Bike insurance broker Carole Nash is searching for the best biker pet, with a photo competition asking would-be winners to combine their love for their bike and their pet in one image.

The winner will be chosen by British Superbike star Leon Haslam, whose race-ace father Ron owns a tortoise called Shelley – pictured here on top of a Honda.

The prize will be £50 worth of animal goodies for the lucky pet, plus a £150 voucher to spend at online gear retailer Sportsbikeshop.

Rebecca Donohue, head of marketing at Carole Nash, said: 'We know that many bikers love their pets as much as their bikes, therefore we want bikers to bring the two together and capture their favourite memories and share them with us.

'With special animal biking outfits and accessories available, this provides the perfect opportunity to show off your stylish pooch or cute kitten rider buddy.'
