Riders across Britain joined forces on 13-14 October to draw attention to the risks faced whenventuring out on to the roads.

Clad in high-viz gear, they headed for towns and villages accompanied by foot followers, who handed out road safety information to passers-by and drivers. There were also dismounted demonstrations in larger towns andoutside major supermarkets.
