The first 2015 memorial ride took place on 29th March 2015 from Chichester to Brighton. Wet and windy but still a good turn out. Great fun was had we hear, although they did manage to get lost in a car park :)
The second ride was held June 21st 2015 - as the weather is often poor in March it was decided to move it to the summer for future events and the first Summer Ride video can be seen here, the weather was lovely and everyone enjoyed a great day out with wonderful views:
22nd March 2014 - Southern England. The ride took place from Chichester to Beachy Head. We were delighted to be able to attend the start of the ride along with other members of our family. A massive thank you to Richy for organising this and to all those who attended including those who rode in other parts of the world on the same day, we have heard of people riding in the USA (Lazy Cricket was one and his video is below) and also in Russia and Australia. Thank you all for helping to keep Steve's memory alive, it is a lovely way to remember him, we really appreciate it and we know that Steve would be humbled at the thought of you riding for him, although he would also say you are all mad! Below are a variety of photos and videos from the day:

Brighton area, Sunday 3rd February 2013 - organised by Kyle and Richy. A lovely idea and we would like to thank them so much for doing something like this to remember Steve and thank everyone who took part - there are plans to make this an annual event and you can keep up to date with any latest news on the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/R.I.P.Svengalie
The ride took place from Devils Dyke near Brighton, and headed down through Brighton and Worthing then up through some country roads and back to Devils Dyke. The lap was about 40 miles and 17 riders took part. The T.Shirt was made especially for the event by Kyle and Richie, the quote on the back is by Steve and taken from his You Tube channel. (Click pic for a larger image).
After quite a few rainy and cold days the weather turned dry and warm for this event.
It was great to put names to faces when we met with the riders as they set off from the White Hart pub in Lenton, Nottingham. A big thank you to the owners of the White Hart for letting the boys use the car park to meet up, find out more here- www.whitehartlenton.com
The riders set off on their journey and by the sounds of it they had a great time in Derbyshire visiting some of Steve's favourite off road areas.
Not being bikers ourselves we took the 4 wheel route to Bakewell and met them there later in the afternoon along with Steve's brother and family. It was good to meet up and have a chat with them all over a drink at the pub.
John had gone to a lot of trouble to have some 'Sven Made Me Smile' stickers and the same image on a T Shirt, which he later kindly gifted to me, albeit it very wet and sweaty!! Thanks John! :-) They were a lovely idea and we were moved by such thoughtfulness in you all wanting to remember Steve this way. Love you all.
