Motorcycle Law Scotland Helps Highlight Breast Way Round

As part of Motorcycle Law Scotland’s commitment to supporting Scotland’s motorcyclists, the specialist legal service has provided a Scottish charity’s motorcycling fundraisers with bright pink, high-visibility vests.

“Every year, Breast Way Round raises tens of thousands of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support by organising bike runs and other events,” said Brenda Mitchell of Motorcycle Law Scotland, Scotland’s only legal service specialising in providing advice and representation to motorcyclists and their families in the aftermath of a road traffic accident. “These eye-catching vests will help to ensure Breast Way Round’s motorcyclists are easily spotted by other road users, helping to keep them safe while also increasing awareness of this excellent charity, which, like Motorcycle Law Scotland, is run by motorcyclists."

Breast Way Round was founded in 2007 by Shirley-Ann McKnight to boost the profile of Scotland’s female motorcyclists and raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. ”When Shirley-Ann’s best friend and fellow motorcyclist, Alyson Porter, was diagnosed with cancer, Alyson received a lot of help from Macmillan Cancer Support,” said Jill Polanski of Breast Way Round. “Tragically, Alyson died soon after our first charity bike run but, so far, we have raised over £180,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.”

Breast Way Round’s main fundraiser is an annual four-day bike run for 80 female motorcyclists and 20 male motorcyclists exploring Scotland’s west coast.  “The Breast Way Round Bike Run is a fantastic experience – and a great way to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support,” said Jill. “In fact, many of the Breast Way Round girls have taken to two wheels just to be part of what we do.

“During the run, we stick bright pink mohicans onto our helmets and, now we have new – and equally bright - pink vests to wear over our leathers, we’ll certainly knock people’s socks off! There’ll be no mistaking the Breast Way Round bikers on this year’s run. We can’t thank Motorcycle Law Scotland’s enough for their support,” continued Jill, as she was presented with the vests at the Bikers’ Cove in South Queensferry, one of Scotland’s top motorcycling destinations.

As well as being one of Scotland’s leading motorcycle accident lawyers, Brenda Mitchell is also a motorcyclist and has taken part in one of Breast Way Round’s girls-only track evenings at Knockhill Race Circuit and will be riding in this year’s charity bike run. “Breast Way Round is a great way to meet fellow female motorcyclists while also raising funds for a very worthwhile cause,” said Brenda.

“Motorcycle Law Scotland aims to support Scotland’s motorcyclists in as many ways as possible – what better way than by helping a group of female motorcyclists who are promoting motorcycling in such a positive way?”
