Megaride - 24 June 2018

Jointly organised by The Rotary Club of Meriden and the Meriden branch of the Triumph Owners Motorcycle Club, (TOMCC),  the 2018 Megaride enjoyed glorious weather. About 130 bikes assembled at The Moat House, Alcester and set off for the ride to Meriden. All arrived safely at the Queen's head and many enjoyed the entertainment, including the music provided by 'The Firm' and the 'Firebird Singers'. The England football match resulted in others leaving early. We are not yet able to calculate how much was raised for the charities, Brain Tumour & Air Ambulance, as riders have until 31st July to send in sponsor money.

Since the first Megaride in 2000 over £60,000 has been distributed to the various charities we supported.

All in all a very enjoyable day.
