BIKERS ROUND-THE-CLOCK 8,000 MILE CHARITY RELAY
Between 28th June – 13th July 2019 the Relay Riders embarked on their annual charitable challenge in a bid to raise money for DocBike. This gruelling ride will consist of 14 days and nights of continuous riding across Britain accumulating a total of over 8,000 miles. This two-week relay ride sees the Relay Riders cuddly mascots Wally and Maureeen transferred between over 250 riders at set handover points across Britain, on a pre-set route . The event, which will see some riders donning fancy dress for their sections, and has so far raised over £6,500 at the time of writing.
Tom Hurford, one of the organisation's founding members, feels that “It brings great pride to not only organise this event but also to take part and bring so many people together for such a worthy cause, the money we raise will undoubtedly make a huge difference to the charity and in doing so has bought great joy to many bikers all over the UK who will have taken part, planning has its ups and downs and brings a great deal of stress but once we hit that finish line it will all be worth it.”
Relay Riders UK are a non-profit organisation of over 4,000 like-minded bikers, who come together to raise money for their chosen annual charity. The group was founded in 2014 by a group of friends for a round Britain relay, which raised £3,000 for Help for Heroes.
When trauma Doctors are able to deliver their skills to the patient at the scene of an accident, the outlook for both surviving their injuries and making a speedier recovery greatly improves. Whether it be flying on the Air Ambulance or riding the DocBike, speed and equipment are key in saving lives. The DocBike brings these key aspects together as the first active two wheeled road going life-saving Doctor Bike in the UK. At bike meets and events, it plays a key role in engaging with riders, delivering key road safety messages, bringing bikers of all kinds into post-test training
