Chilly Willy riders visit Bedford

A huge host of motorcylists rode around Bedford, raising cash for a medical charity.

More than £1,200 was raised during the Chilly Willy Ride for Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance by the bikers in their annual January ride.

Just over 165 bikers including a volunteer, a pilot and paramedic from the air ambulance took part in the fundraiser.

The bikers completed a 45-mile route which took them around part of Bedford, before heading to Olney and back to Northamptonshire. Before the ride a minute silence was held in tribute to all bikers killed on the roads.

The date for next year’s event for all bikers and scooters over 125cc is Sunday, January 8, 2017 and all are welcome to join in.
