Welcome to another edition of the Arctic Ride 2014 blog. For those of you who are new to the blog basically in May and June of 2014 I will be riding my motorbike 6,000 in 3 weeks to the Arctic Circle and Nordkapp from my hometown of Newcastle upon Tyne all to raise money for brain-injury charity Cerebra.
I've had another very busy week (I know I need a holiday right?) and not only has it been busy but rather successful. On Thursday evening I set off from my house around 8pm on what was a warm summer's eve with my destination the North East MotorCycle Racing Club (NEMCRC). I was kindly invited by Bruce Allinson to present to the club about my adventure.
|Parked up ready to chat to the NEMCRC committee|
Next I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who has viewed my video and suggested names for 'Cerebra Bear'. As there have been so many good suggestions I am going to run a vote as I can't decide. So watch out for that vote and check out the vid if you haven't already.
On Sunday of this week I went to visit a bike show not far from my house at North Shields Fish Quay. I managed to miss most of it not only because I got the times wrong but I managed to miss the entrance (there will be a vlog to follow this) but I get this video just as all the other bikes were leaving.
If you haven't seen already I have a new section of my website (does not apply for mobile users) which is my 'This week's featured video' - This week's is my latest Vlog where I ride the Northumberland coastal route with my mate Ant. -------------------------------->
That's all for this week... Ride safe.
Please keep spreading the word about my trip.
