This was by no means a speed trip, we are not hooligans. We ride to promote a good name for motorcyclists. We rode in a controlled manner in a proven 'drop off' system. No riders are left behind, lost or stranded. We expect all riders to ride with integrity within the group, and this is always very much the case.

RIDERS are responsible for arranging & paying for their evening stops.

We suggested booking at Premier Inns for the evening stops of the event - if booked early reasonable rates were available.
