A PM ride...with a difference
 
Soooooooo, bit of a plug in aid of YC's folks who are embarking on a trek in Jordan in aid of Parkinson's. They have a fundraising target before they do the trek in October and YC and I would like to do our bit to help them on their way.....

Anyone who has popped by YC's mum's place and had a taste of her hospitality will know she'll do owt to help anyone and now would be a lovely way to show your appreciation :D




BUT HOW ? I hear you cry!

BY A FUN RIDEOUT OF COURSE 8-)


We want a ride that will drop in on as many biker honeypots as possible, with a handful of us wearing the characteristic blue Parkinson's tshirts over leathers to show what we're about, a few of us with collecting tins/buckets bungeed to bikes and we shall proceed to milk as many poor unsuspecting bikers for pennies as possible through SLOW RIDE COMPETITIONS, SPACE HOPPER RACING (this will however need to involve more than the one spacehopper we own so we're hoping other folk have 'em toooo :notworthy:) and any other ideas folk can come up with :smt084

Obviously those of you who would fancy attending will be forking out on fuel and sacrificing your dignity with attention seeking outfits (let your imagination go wild 8-[) will not be expected to donate anything more than your time. But the more of us there are the more of an impression we will make, the more worthwhile a cause it will be to support and consequently all the more money will be raised!!!



BUT WHEN? BUT WHEN? I hear you bellow!

Basically we want to find a date to suit as many of us as possible, hopefully slap bang in the middle of this Indian summer (so September?) we've all been promised ;) A weekend day would be better, lots of shiny bikes and wealthy power rangers to descend upon :smt077

I shall be sticking up a poll shortly...



Please note, any money raised WILL go to charity, YC's folks themselves have put in a good wodge of money to pay for their trip and now need a helping hand to reach their fundraising target.



SO WHO'S COMING?!!!


1. YC
2. Missyburd

I can't do the ride out unfortunately as much as I would like to but I'll chip in with a few pennies ;-)

Gutted I'm missing out again.

Changes to my work mean I cannot guarantee even being in the UK September, so I am a definite maybe.

I wish them all the best with this project, Parkinsons is horrid. Have watched my grandfather go through it back in the 70s. So let me know how to contribute to their fund.
