MARTHA CARE RIDE OUT 15th April 2012

Posted on


On Sunday 15th April Tor Leisure Centre in Glastonbury will see the arrival of 200 motorcycles from all over the South West to ride together in support of Martha Care

Bikes will start arriving from 9.30am ready for being sent off by Graham Coles, Glastonbury Town Crier, at 11.00am. The ride will take in about 60 miles of glorious Somerset roads, starting with one of the country's best High Streets - Glastonbury!  Then onto biking favourites like Cheddar Gorge and Burrington Coombe.  All levels of rider are welcome and we're sure everyone will get something out of the ride and the day. We pride ourselves on rider safety and are pleased to have Somerset Road Safety in attendance to provide advice for riders of all abilities.

Bikes will return to the leisure centre at about 1pm where there will be a hog roast, live music from Fraser Road Race and lots of motorbike oggling and discussion by riders and spectators!  There will be a bouncy castle to keep the children amused too. Every rider will receive a goody bag with a commemorative pin badge, other goodies and information for riders. 

The riders who have gone to the most effort by making either themselves or their bike as bright and yellow as possible will be presented with a sash by Graham Coles to wear on the ride out.

Pel Crosby, photographer from Weston Bike Night, will be in attendance taking on the move pictures of all the bikes in various locations.  The pictures will be available to purchase with the proceeds going to Martha Care. Check the Martha Care Ride Out page for details.

We have lots of amazing raffle prizes; including our top prize of a pair of weekend tickets to any round of British Superbikes, including two hoodies courtesy of, another great prize of a Max Rider training day worth over £100 thanks to Somerset Road Safety, tee shirts, hoodies and lots more!
