Poppy day ride 11th November.
We have decided that the clubs ride outs on the 11th of November will be known as “poppy day rides”.
Each participant will be asked to make a minimum donation of £1, which will go to a charity for very local ex service men and women.
A local cyclist has been raising money for this charity, we could donate our small contribution to his efforts.
We have attended memorials over the last 4 years each remembrance day, as a group of cyclists. we now have a lot more people turning up for rides which will make it difficult to get everyone in the right place at the right time. I tried last year to get us into the Brewood memorial service only to find we were locked out. We also turned up at the national memorial one year and were the only people not dressed in black. Our way of paying respect can be by us making a small donation to the local charity, and taking i minute of silence at the cafe if we wish to.
