One of the strengths of the biker community is the spirit of camaraderie and support from your fellow enthusiasts, and you do not need to be in a club to understand this.
In March 2019 Harry a young worker at a local hospital with a young son was T Boned and sustained serious injuries and is still in hospital. He worked with a member of Middilgard R.C so the club got together to hold a charity event to help support him and his family.

The big winner of the day was the flamed Harley which won bike of the day and several other prizes
In true style on leaving I managed a complete loop of the town and passed the event in two directions before finding an out a great day out.
