Bikers roar into town for Burnham-On-Sea hovercraft charity

Almost 70 motorcyclists roared into Burnham-On-Sea on Sunday (September 14th) to take part in a fundraising bike ride for BARB, the charity that runs the town's two life-saving rescue hovercrafts.

Dozens of cyclists from across the region took part in the 60 mile ride, which began at the Bristol Bridge Inn in Highbridge at 10am and finished at BARB's hovercraft station on Burnham seafront at 3pm, pictured above.

The bikes, which included mopeds, vintage wartime machines and the latest superbikes, were then on show to the public.

Organiser Norman Templeman, who is a member of BARB's crew, said: "We were delighted with the turnout and are grateful for all the generous support, which generated over £380 for BARB."

He added that a second event is already being planned for next spring.
