17th May 2014

The inaugural Ridethecounty event was a roaring success, thanks to the 120 entrants and the businesses that supported the event

The initial target was to raise £2500 to cover the cost of one air ambulance mission – we have easily made double that thanks again to the business community and sponsorship from entrants etc.
