UPDATE 08/02/2020

THE WORK IS NOT YET DONE 

JOIN IN <> GET INVOLVED <> JOIN THE FIGHT

My next Charity Ride 2020 may be a repeat John O'Groats - Land's End. 

To be honest, I haven't yet decided on the route and I am also looking at the 'Roger Clarke RAC Rally' which offers fresh challenges and new experiences.

Updates are available on my facebook page and I would urge you to make that your more regular source of information.

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all my followers a HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.

RAFFLE IN SUPPORT OF PROSTATE CANCER UK

The raffle has not gone according to plan and only those tickets listed below have been sold.

I have therefore decided to extend it 'til the end of this year's charity ride when hopefully there will be a wider audience able to donate to the cause by buying the rest of the tickets.

The raffle, posted in 2019, has not gone according to expectations and only 4 tickets out of 100 have been sold.

I have therefore decided to extend the raffle 'til the end of this year's proposed charity ride, when hopefully it will reach a wider audience able to donate to the cause, by purchasing the rest of the tickets. 

RAFFLE ITEMS

1st Prize

The MOBIL OIL can, gifted by Henry Cole, famed from his television series Greatest Motorcycles Rides The Motorbike Show, Shed & Buried, Find It Fix It Flog It, Find It Fix It Drive It and his autobiography ‘A Bikers Life’. 

As aficionados from the world of recycling and upcycling of rusty, treasured and perceived disorderly old junk related memorabilia will confirm, this MOBIL OIL can is more valuable that the sum of its past content.

It has been autographed by both Henry Cole and his long time friend, Sam Lovegrove, from Junk & Disorderly and other televised series.

Also included:-

A printed photograph of Henry, Sam and I taken on the set of Junk & Disorderly.

A new Prostate Cancer T-Shirt (Large only)

A signed plain text paperback copy of my book "John O'Groats to Land's End Charity Rides 2014 - 2018".

2nd & 3rd Prizes

A new Prostate Cancer T-Shirt each (again Large only) and also a signed plain text paperback copy of my book. 

IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION

Anyone can enter this draw, but as it is essentially a UK based competition, prizes will be only posted to a UK (England, Scotland, Wales) address.

The raffle numbers go up to 100 and priced at £10 each.

All proceeds go directly to Prostate Cancer UK.

YOU ARE NOT RESTRICTED TO HOW MANY TICKETS YOU BUY, but once all 100 tickets are sold, the winners will be announced. 

The link to donate can be found on my Facebook page.

Once notified of your purchase, I will post allocated number/s to your name. 

Once the magic number of 100 is reached, the raffle will end. The draw will take place, winners notified and names posted. 

Please accept my personal gratitude for your support over the past years. I look forward to catching up with you on my ride or at the many venues where I will appear.

JOHN O'GROATS TO LAND'S END CHARITY RIDE 2020

IN SUPPORT OF PROSTATE CANCER UK

The work is not yet finished.

More needs to be done to further raise awareness of this debilitating disease which is

KILLING ONE MAN EVERY FORTY-FIVE MINUTES.

As a prelude to my intended ride next year,I am currently compiling a series of short, sharp, video blogs, on this issue.

They will firstly appear on my Instagram and will eventually feature as an hour episode on my facebook and YouTube.

Hopefully, it will help to create a greater momentum of interest and contribute towards raising more funds needed to finding a cure.

Should you wish to join me on my next tour, please register your interest by contacting me via my Instagram account, this site and email address.

I had the privilege to meet Henry Cole when he came to Harrogate on the 19th October for his book launch and signing. 

I won’t change what I’ve already written about him in my book, but only to say that I was disappointed that the Yorkshire County Bikers and those who frequent Squires Café, did not make an effort to see him. It would have made for a spectacular event in his honour and would have reaffirmed the brotherhood that supposedly exists amidst the biking community.

Henry Cole is a genuine biker risen from the ashes of the symbolic phoenix of life and is the perfect example of what can be achieved with determination, desire and grit.

He is truly passionate about the world of biking and life. His responses to the questions asked about his misadventures off/on two wheels were funny and indicative of the respect and humility he has for other bikers and humanity.

I look forward to tucking fully into his book and being more attentive of his experiences and to read about his enormous contributions to the world of the motorcycle life on two wheels. 

He is an inspiration and I’m glad that I got to finally meet him and his charming family. 

Respect Dude.

UPDATE JUNE 2019
