Cross-posted: 13th June 2009 Red Ribbon Ride Out

Reposted from one of the organisers Bebo page:

Hi Everyone,

The Irish AIDS Day Ride Out is back due to popular demand!!

This year it is slightly different.....we do not require sponsorship for you to ride with us!! YEH!!

It's just slap a €20 on the table and away you go!!

We are riding the coast again, and stopping for lunch on the way.

Meeting in Bedford Row at 11.30 to hang around and look cool, make noise and attract onlookers (and possibly other riders)!!

Leaving for the run at 2pm sharp.

We will be accompanied as always by the Red Cross, The Irish Motorcycle Marshalls and the Guards.

So if you want more infromation about how you can get to be waved through red lights and make a huge noise all in the name of charity contact John Simons (event organiser) on 061314354 or John (at) redribbonproject (dot) com.

Hope to see you all there,

Keep it between the ditches and rubber side down!!


I know it conflicts (or coincides depending on your view) with WWKIP day, but I figure it would make for a great photo opportunity to bring one's WIP on WWKIP to RRRO.

(Sorry, I couldn't resist playing with the alphabet soup :snigger:).

In plainer English that would be bring your work in progress to the Ride Out and help raise awareness of our crafts and of the day's cause. Maybe you could be sponsored to knit or crochet a certain amount before the riders make it to their finish point.

Plus, I'll be there and I'd love to meet some other crafty souls.

This boi has had the pleasure of joining the Red Ribbon Ride Out in previous years as a passenger. The bikers are a brilliant bunch of people coming together for a great cause. If ya like bikes this really is the place to be, even if you don't have or can't bring your own. If you're like me, you may even find that a rider might have a spare helmet and be willing to take a passenger. :) Ya never know.

Turn up, cheer 'em on and slap some money on the table as a donation (even if it is 50cent).

Happy crafting folks.
