Lord Mayor to wave off ‘Great Brain Riders’

Charity bikers riding in aid of Liverpool’s Neurosupport will be waved off by the Lord Mayor and his consort this weekend.

On Sunday 18 August over 100 bikers are expected to turn up at St George’s Plateau to take part in the annual bike ride to North Wales.

Based in Liverpool Neurosupport is the only charity of its kind in the country which specialises in offering and advice and support to individuals and families of those with neurological conditions such as brain and spinal injuries.

Lord Mayor Councillor Gary Millar said: “I am delighted to be waving off these fantastic men and women on their way.

“This is a great charity and I sincerely hope we can get as many bikers involved in the ride to raise as much money as possible for such a worthy cause. I hope we can encourage as many bikers to get involved in the ride and raise as much money as possible for Neurosupport.

“I would also ask local people to come along to St Georges Plateau and give everyone involved a great Liverpool send off.”

Bikers for Neurosupport is a voluntary motorbike club whose aim is to raise awareness of the charity whilst having fun on bikes, trikes and quads.

The journey takes place from St George’s Plateau, through Liverpool and ending in North Wales.
