Give us a four months notice of next years RTTW please, so I can apply for leave. (Either that or find another job!)

Woke up all bleary eyed on Saturday, wondering what to do until 3pm and the Tamworth FC game. Switched on the radio to hear an interview about the RTTW event. Realised I could still make it, jumped into the shower, zipped down to the barn where I store the trike and dusted her down for her last outing before the winter.

Am I glad I heard that interview on the radio. I knew nothing about the event, even though I live in Tamworth! I was absolutely staggered by the turnout, the weather was just stunning, which helped. The ride to the Arboretum was a real hoot, and superbly organised. My only suggestion would be to have more people shaking buckets encouraging donations at the Arboretum (and yes, I will be the first to volunteer!)

All in all, a brilliant day magnificently organised. I can see this one growing and growing. For any fellow Arrsers that attended, I was the nutter in the Indian Tuk tuk driving full throttle on the A38 at 37mph!!!

Marco,
Keep your eye on The Ride To The Wall website, I know that you will be pleasantly surprised on the amount that was raised, I was interviewed and photographed by one of your local papers, I delivered the Remembrance Tribute after Padre Lionel Fanthorpe.
A great day of Remembrance.
Best regards.

Amazing! Copied and pasted this from the excellent Ride To The Wall Website - 2,500 Bikes!!! 8O :

We rolled out of the services escorted by 4 Police motorcyclists from Northamptonshire. The Staffordshire Police followed the procession, which took 1 ½ hours from the first bike leaving the services to the last bike arriving at the Arboretum. I have been informed by various sources that there were over 2,500 bikes on the ride and over 3000 people at the Arboretum to pay their respects. Some of you may have heard about two accidents on the ride and I am pleased to be able to tell you that there were no serious injuries.

The service and dignity shown by all was truly wonderful, with memories flooding back to many of those present.

We must not forget that the main aim of the day was, firstly to remember those that have died since WW2 and secondly to raise money for the Arboretum. The amount raised was a staggering £10,300.00. In December 2008 I was proud to present a cheque for this amount to the Arboretum photographs of which can be seen in the Photo section of the website.


HarleyPara, how many members do you have now?

Harley, I will keep my eyes open for the article in the Tamworth Herald. I had a chat to The Rev Lionel before the run started, as I have met him previously on a few occasions for the Annual Jumbo bike Run which he supports. A thoroughly nice chap ,and a good man to have onside.

If you need any help locally next year (advertising/bucket rattling ets) give me a shout.

Well done to all. A top day.
