The West Midlands Region were holding their Mudbath Rally that weekend so I joined the ride in from Balsall Common. The bikes set off under bright skies and we had a well marshalled ride out to the rendezvous point. From there we rode en masse to the National Memorial Arboretum. There were about 180 bikes in the ride with others already having made their own way there.
At the Arboretum we gathered under darkened skies for a moving service in this most poignant of locations, and then proceeded to the main step for a group photo. There was time then to have a look round and take in all the site has to offer. Some took this time for private reflection and others as a chance to reacquaint with friends but all had gathered with one purpose.
