Sunday’s ride was the 11th consecutive year Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has hosted the event.

Firefighter Tim Marston, who took part in the event, said: “It was a superb day, helped by the glorious sunshine.”

Previous years have seen more than 1,000 bikers take part, and between them, they have managed to bring a smile to the faces of children across Nottinghamshire who benefit from their generosity and kindness.
