MEMBERS of Wirral’s Open Air Riders group spent a full day in the saddle for charity.
They raised nearly £1,000 for Neurosupport with their 24 hour challenge in the Walton Centre for Neurology.
Fundraisers spent the entire time on their motorbikes.
The founder of OAR, Paul Rigby, from Prenton, said: “We entertained ourselves to try to make the time go faster and didn’t get bored.
“During our time we had food delivered, sang along with a guitar and some bikers brought laptops. We tried everything to pass the time and people came to say hello too.
“But it was terrible during the night time and I didn’t get any sleep, it was uncomfortable. Some fell asleep and one biker fell off his bike.
“It was hard work and we were all aching a lot. But we all got on really well and had a great time.
“I don’t think it has been done before – living on a bike like that for 24 hours.
“A few hours of discomfort and saddle sore is worth it to raise the money for a good cause.
“It is something I’ll never forget, a memorable 24 hours to remember.”
This latest caper follows on from a calendar they have produced called Twenty Shades Of OAR.
The family friendly calendar is on target to raise £5,000 for the Neuro Centre.
Paul added: “The calendars have nearly sold out, there is about a hundred left out of a thousand copies we had printed.
“So we are close to achieving our £5,000 target.”
