Hats off this week­end to MCN’S #ride5000miles mem­ber Terry Collins who spent the Easter bank hol­i­day on a ride to the Ar­dennes – trav­el­ling from Glas­gow via the tun­nel.

The route saw Terry cover 2000 miles with a group of friends. Terry said: “It was a tough ride to the tun­nel, but the roads in France were top notch. We only had two days of rain too.”

Else­where, Kur­tis Vin­cent Lowe en­joyed a week­end away to the Lake Dis­trict with Howard Phillips and Mark Lane – adding 420 miles to their to­tals.

“I’ve had a crack­ing week­end away. I went to Cock­er­mouth, Loweswa­ter, But­ter­mere Lake, Hon­is­ter Pass, Wrynose Pass and Hard­knott Pass both ways. What a road,” Kur­tis said.

Away from the roads, fel­low mem­ber Scott Hey­den, from Dar­ling­ton, added 147 miles to his to­tal by ex­plor­ing the Peak Dis­trict. This brings Scott’s tally to 540 across his three mo­tor­cy­cles.

Colin New­ton, mean­while, cov­ered 1236 miles in a day on his Kawasaki ZZR1400, rid­ing from Roscoff in France to Mur­cia in Spain. Colin said: “It was piss­ing down when I rode to Ply­mouth to board the ferry and piss­ing down when I got off at Roscoff. In fact, it never stopped un­til I crossed the bor­der to­wards Biar­ritz.”

This lat­est ride brings Colin’s ZZR’S to­tal mileage to an im­pres­sive 92,000.
