The original event was cancelled two years ago because of a lack of funding.

Many of the tribute riders wore fancy dress, as Gray discovered when he met a Suzuki-riding pink rabbit called Sally!

"It was a lovely day. There were thousands and thousands of bikes. Everybody had a great time including all the people who turned out to watch the convoy go past." - Gray Hawke, presenter

The North West Air Ambulance and North West Blood Bikes, a charity that supports the NHS by providing out of hours transport for blood transfusions, also benefited from the event.

Starting young!
