Dates for your Diary.....
Charity motorcycle run on Sunday 17 September 2017.
An ideal opportunity for a fun day riding, meet new friends and enjoy some great company.
No we're not just doing a run for the fun of it!!
This time, the run is to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer who offer expert care, guidance and support to people living with terminal illness, and their families.
We'll meet on Sunday morning at Gasoline Alley Cafe for 9.30am for a Bacon Roll and a tea or coffee, then we aim to be on the road for 10am.
The run will include a variety of roads leaving Saltire and heading over the new Queensferry Crossing, heading towards Crook of Devon, then over Newburgh / Abernethy, then Cupar to St Andrews where we'll be stopping for Lunch. After lunch we continue along the coastal route of Fife and back to Saltire.
£10.00 per person for the above including donation to Charity (payable on the day).
If you can't make it on the day, you can make a donation to Marie Curie here.
Please ensure that bikes are fueled before the run, so we all get out together.
Please note this is not a race, its a day to connect with like minded people and enjoy the experience and excitement of being on 2 (or 3) wheels, whilst raising funds for a great cause!
Riders are responsible for their own ride. Be courteous, observe the laws of the road and have fun!
