CHARITY BIKE RIDE
THIS YEAR WAS DIFFERENT
After three years of riding Bangkok to Phuket, the Bangers On Bikes decided to do it the other way round this year and also to do it a day quicker than ever before. There were some new faces again this year but the core of the original three Bob Pearson and Jean Francois Klentzi were again to be found huffing and puffing along the highway. This year they were joined by 3 year veterans Martin Hodgson and Richard Folds, Trefor Day making his second trip and rookie rider Rod Kerr (elder brother of Viagrabonds Legend Angus Kerr).
