The 2013 Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group Annual Santa Ride was a huge success in both record numbers attending and the weather on the day. Crowds turned out on a beautiful sunny day with not a cloud in the sky to see the riders. In all there were two hundred Santa’s. At the start of the ride the Group held a bucket collection for the hospice whilst the riders were signing in. The collection raise a superb £425. 61p.

The Group Face Book page at has been inundated with comments and photos.

A big thank you to all those that, helped, organised and took part in this ride. The final figure of the amount raised will be known in the new year. Thousands of pounds have already been pledged.



Members of the Group went down to Thornaby Town Centre on Friday 29th November 2013 and took part in the Christmas Lights Switch on. Here are some photos.

People will be aware that there is an on-going dispute within the Fire Brigade which has led to Industrial action being taken.

As a consequence of this on-going dispute it has been decided tat this year we will not be starting our Motorcycle Santa Ride from Thornaby Fire Station. This decision has been taken to ensure that we do not become involved in any action that may be taken.

We will instead be starting from Thornaby Town Centre.

All entrants will be receiving the new details. The website Rules and Regulations will be amended asap.
