60 Motorcyclists rev up their engines for Ride to Work day
A CONVOY of 60 motorbikes drove through Crow country on Monday in support of International Ride to Work day.
Motorcyclists gathered at the Lazy Dayz Cafe outside Wimpole on Monday morning, before making their way into Cambridge on the A603.
The ride was organised by Cambridgeshire County Council’s road safety team, in conjunction with Cambridgeshire police, and the riders received a police escort during the journey, which took them through the city to the county council’s Shire Hall headquarters.
Each rider was asked to make a donation to the The Road Victims trust.
Simon Burgin, Collision Investigator for Cambridgeshire Police, said: “Ride to Work Day provides us with a great opportunity to promote the benefits of motorcycling.”

And councillor Mac McGuire, the county council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for highways and community Infrastructure, added: “Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable road users so events like this are an ideal opportunity for us to raise awareness of rider safety. Police Officers joined the ride and were on hand to offer riding advice to help reduce rider’s chances of being involved in a collision.”
