What a great week, met so many different people and was able to really share and celebrate what Mental Health Motorbike is. It has also given me a flavour of how that baton relay will be, especially as after each location there will be media events to factor in as well. I really need to build my general fitness before next May.
And so we arrive at our final day. After yesterday’s sightseeing at Salisbury and Stonehenge we today return to a number of scheduled cafe stops where you can come and have a chat. Our last stop is the bike meet at The Raven at Whitchurch.

What an amazing if not a wet day. In the morning we did the DGR ride and this was fantastic we stayed dry and it was a lot of fun. We met loads of friends at the Churchill Arms (massive thank you to Tanya for looking after us), then we set off in the heavens opened. Three hours in torrential rain we were like drowned rats. We arrived in Plymouth safe and we even got to the front of a road traffic accident and gave our cards out to the armed response police team there and are now members on the group.
It was announced at the beginning of the DGR that over £20,000 had been raised by this one ride alone! Congratulations to Ian and the whole team of volunteers for managing this process. Great people
We had an early start and rode the DGR. We rode down Sandbanks but Harry and Sandra didn’t turn out. Afterwards we rode over to one of the nominated distribution locations, The Churchill Arms, where we met up with our partners DocBike.
We headed out to Plymouth via the fastest possible route rather than the planned ride. The rain was the heaviest I have ever ridden through. If we could have bailed we would but it wasn’t an option.
