Herefordshire Hospice Trail

The Herefordshire Group Trail Riders Fellowship held its third Herefordshire Hospice Trail on 14th and 15th September at the Baskerville Hall Hotel in Clyro. Entry fees and event raffle (with prizes kindly donated by local Hereford and Leominster motorcycle dealers) raised £2,500 for St Michael’s Hospice, bringing the group’s accumulative total to £5,336.

The group, which formed in 2016, used its green lane riding expertise to lead participants across legally accessible green lanes around the Herefordshire-Wales border.

With entertainment from local band The Phoenix, camping and good food on offer, the event attracted participants from across the country.

Chris Smart, Communications Manager at St Michael’s Hospice, said, ‘We are very privileged to have so much support from the Herefordshire motorcycling community. We want to thank the Herefordshire Group of The Trail Riders Fellowship for putting on such a well-organised event and for continuing to support St Michael’s Hospice. We look forward to visiting their 2020 event.’

The Herefordshire Trail Riders Fellowship are one group from the National TRF who regularly ride the legal green roads (Byways and ORPA’S/ Other Roads with Public Access) of Herefordshire and Wales plus many other areas throughout the year.
