In August Cambridgeshire TRF held their annual 250-mile ride from Haverhill to Hunstanton and back in aid of brain injury charity Headway, who have a proud history of rehabilitating injured motorcyclists.
The event attracted forty riders following the flowing route in groups of five or six along a flat, sandy and full-on day which raised £1,700 through a very modest entry fee and a cooked breakfast/dinner from food kindly donated by Tesco.
Dawn briefly warmed the riders before they set off in smaller groups.
The event is organised by Colin Pountney and complements the (slightly) more sedate ‘Iceni Weekend’ held earlier in the year. Most teams finished the route in around twelve hours though the slowest group (mine!) took thirteen hours and forty minutes despite riding at what felt like a brisk pace with only minimal stops.

Next year’s event has been provisionally arranged for the 18th of August.
