2018 Ride to the Dunes

2018_ride_to_the_dunes

Wow, what a day this turned out to be with around 600 bikers turning out this year, raising funds for Daz's Den our holiday chalet based in Mablethorpe. Once again Donna and Dean Batchelor, along with their fantastic team organised a fantastic ride, the biggest yet in the 3 years this event has been going.

As the day promised to be a lovely day people were starting to arrive early, ready to enjoy a day at the seaside. The me&dee team were in The Dunes Complex, busy setting up the stall and getting the buckets ready for our team of collectors to hit the streets for a few hours later in the day. The Ride to the Dunes team were checking the route in and parking arrangements, make no mistake this event is a year in the planning, it's not easy.

Word is out, the riders have set off from The Wolds Pub Restaurant in Nottingham, they are being led out by the Nottinghamshire Fire Brigade (West Bridgeford), they are on the way to Tattershall to join up with many more bikers.

Riders have left Tattershall and are on the way, along with the RTTD marshals, volunteer bikers, helping on the day to make sure it's a safe ride for everyone.

As the day goes on crowds begin to gather as the arrival time nears, the biggest crowd to be seen for this event, being entertained by DJ Raz from the Dunes Complex. The time has arrived, they are forming up at the top of the High Street, ready for their parade in to the centre of Mablethorpe, led in by the Mablethorpe Fire Brigade.

As they turn left on to Quebec Road they are shown in to the car parks that have been put by for their arrival and as the noise subsides, riders dismount and head off for the various places to take a well-earned drink and snack on what has turned out to be a very hot day.

What a sight they were, the noise of the crowd, the noise of the bikes, it all makes for a fantastic, enjoyable experience for rider and viewer alike.

A massive thank you to everyone connected with this Ride Out from the guys in Nottingham to all the businesses that helped Donna and her team in Mablethorpe. Donna was delighted to announce that the ride had raised £7,897, a fantastic amount, thank you everyone.
