Hi everyone, my dad and our local pub are organising a charity event in may, it will take place sunday 4th of may as it is a bank holiday on the 5th. We will be doing a charity ride starting at 11am on the sunday from our local (the old farmhouse, ulverston, cumbria) where there will be hot buns and brews available before the ride and we will be riding to devils bridge kirby lonsdale. then up through the yorkshire dales to hawes, from there we will be going to windermere lake and all around it, then to consiton lake and back to ulverston. its about 150 miles we think. we will meet at about 9am on the sunday and there will be bacon buns etc on sale from which all proceeds will go to the charities, have a general crack before setting off on the ride. the ride will end at the old farmhouse where there will be a pig roast on (free pig bun for all riders on return) there will also be entertainment which i need to find out more about. it will cost £5 per rider and £4 per pillion to partake of which will all go to charity and the day should be a good day in general. because it is being organised by the pub and my dad the proceeds will go towards two different charities. unfortunately one of my dads best friends has passed away today, he was a great fan of riding and bikes in general, he died of cancer half of the funds will be going to an oncology unit in barrow in furness (furness general hospital) and half will be going to inshore rescue. we have done charity events before such as one for our good mate banger torkington who unfortuantely had a motorcross accident which left him disabled and also a charity event for a girl named jessica who was born with a disability that affected her face so she could not smile, both of these events among others were very very successful, we only hope this one is just as successful. cancer is something that affects a lot of people in a lot of ways and the work that the inshore rescue do is absoloutely invaluable, myself, my dad and the local pub hope that everyone who hears about it will lend their support and come to the event, even if not to ride just to be there. since joining this forum i have found a great sense of community and the most helpful genuine characters you could ask for. everyone is welcome to the event and i hope to see you there. any questions just ask or even phone me on 07717373291. cheers boys and girls. craig

OK, don't mean to piddle on the parade, but as the weather this morning seems to be doing that for me-


Been raining most of the night, and it's gonna rain most of the day n'all.

In fact, I think we should stop organising rides for Wednesdays, as they always seem to attract the naff weather.

You guys passing today then?

I dont like organising ride's. I prefer to get up on a weekend and see the weather is nice, then go out! :lol:


Ahh, the sensible way.....

Yes, i think we'll give it a miss this once! Was just saying to Simon, it's all very well going out and getting caught in a shower, but to go out knowing you'll get soaked just for the sake of it...

Cue the angry responses of 'I ride in any weather, you pansy' :lol:
