Bikers out for blood

Broseley’s Festival of Motorcycling returned for its third year running and raised £563 for the Shropshire, Staffordshire, and Cheshire Blood Bikes, a vital rapid response charity with over three decades of service to the NHS.

Bikers taking part in the ride had assembled at the Woodbridge Inn in Coalport before setting off on a route that took them through Ironbridge, Much Wenlock, and Barrow, before arriving at Broseley. Around 180 riders joined the event, with the Broseley High Street closed off and bikes parked up on either side along the entire length.

The event was praised by Broseley’s Safer Neighbourhood Policing team, with a spokesman saying, “The event was very well organised, with road closures in place in Broseley and plenty of volunteers on hand to direct members of the public and the motorcyclists. All in all, it was a great event, and we are looking forward to next year’s festival.”
