Twenty like-minded motorcycle enthusiasts assembled at Bowkers Harley-Davidson in Preston, Lancashire, to take part in Barbersride 2. Included in their number were barbers, manufacturers, designers, bloggers, distributors, photographers, film makers and a comedian from Blackpool.
Barbersride’s collective aim was to ride well over 1,000 miles and raise money for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in the process.
The vaguely circular route took the riders from Preston H-D via Chesterfield H-D to Newmarket H-D to Shaw H-D to Bridgewater H-D before arriving at Chester H-D for the presentation of a giant cheque. Each Harley-Davidson dealership hosted a seminar that showcased the skills and repertoire of well known and industry-respected barbers.
A spokesman for Barbersride said: “The final figure is yet to be confirmed – however it would appear that we have topped last year’s £10,000. A special mention and a huge thank you to the Speakeasy Barbershop in Rainhill, Merseyside who raised a phenomenal £2,100… Huzzah.”
