Scooter riders braving the cold for charity

Two massive scooter riding charity events have been going on this week : Breasticle Run and the Testicle Shootout II

Breasticle Run and Testicle Shootout II

Cancer is a C**T Charity Rides 2016

Breasticle Run

Between 17th and 19th of February 2016 four lovely ladies are riding their geared Italian scooters almost 1,000 miles around the southern coast and counties of England to raise money for Cancer related charities. A number of themed fund raising activities will be taking place en route and they welcome other riders and hot beverages along the way. 

You can track their route here

You can make donations and find out more on their Facebook page

 

Testicle Shootout II

While the ladies are out braving the winter weather, the lads are having a Vespa vs Lambretta shootout on the good old LeJog.

In 2014 a team of Lambretta enthusiasts took on a challenge in aid of Cancer is a C***! They aimed to do it in 48hrs or less but actually completed it in 56 hrs. Not too shabby! This year they aim to better their time, same route but not only battling the elements and the clock but also a team of Vespa riders travelling in the opposite direction.
That age old argument “Which is the better scooter?” is about to be answered, first team over the finish line obviously have far superior scooters and are much better riders! 

More information on their Facebook page

You can track Team Vespa and Team Lambretta to keep abreast of their progress!

The riders will all be meeting up in Rainham, Kent for a weekend of fun and fundraising.

If you get a chance, get down to see which team is back first.  Obviously I’m not biased but I’ll be shouting out for the girls!!
