"After the event most of the bikers went on down to Ayr to support Rock the Nile, raising further funds for Crohn's & Cholitis UK.

"All at our club would like to thank the many who supported this amazing achievement - including Dayn and his family, in addition to our own Ross's gran, who personally raised £1,200 towards our total."
