In 1981, best friends Ray Greaves, George Dowling and Gordon McLeod challenged 15 men to ride 100 miles from Newcastle to Leeds to raise money for our legacy charity North Of England Childrens Cancer Fund. The idea came about because Ray’s daughter Caroline had cancer and they wanted to do something to raise money and awareness…
Over the next 16 years , hundreds of riders joined them, helping to raise over £1.7 million.
40 years on, bike ride organisers, George & Gordon are holding a reunion and would love to see as many bike riders as possible (sadly, Ray has passed away).
Please turn up (bearing in mind the safety of you and others) and enjoy a chat and a drink with George and Gordon.
Date: Wednesday 11th August 2021 .
Venue: Hebburn Legion Social Club
Time: from 7pm .
In addition, photographs of all rides will be on display for viewing on Monday 9th & Tuesday 10th August at Hebburn Legion.
