The distinctive rumble of around 90 Harley Davidsons could be heard in Skegness today as a motorcycle owners club rolled into town as part of their annual chapter rally.
The Doncaster based St Leger Chapter had ridden from Bainland Country Park in Woodhall Spa to the Lifeboat Station in Skegness for the eight Iron Horse Rally.
Sue ‘Wigjob’ O’Grady said the chapter, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, would be raising funds for the RNLI as a token of appreciation for the town’s much-loved lifesaving charity.
“When we come down we park up here to raise some funds for the RNLI because it gets no funding from the government so needs more help than most,” she said.
“There’s no seaside at Doncaster so we like to come to Skegness.”
The group will be enjoying an afternoon of chapter games, followed by a ‘slow race’ before the return to Woodhall Spa, where they are all staying, to enjoy some live bands and DJs.
Sue says the various Harley Davidson owners group chapters are like an international fraternity, welcoming fellow members wherever they are across the world.
“It’s unbelievable how friendly everybody is,” she said.
