The ‘Action on Addiction’ ride, which started in Weymouth on Saturday, April 22, finished at the Foxholes car park.
Crowds lined the seafront to see the bikers roll into the town and they were greeted by mayor Councillor Brian Cole.
Riders of differing ages and abilities were encouraged to wear pink for the event, held to raise funds for the Action of Addiction charity and the work it does at Dorset-based rehabilitation facility Clouds House.
This year’s ride has raised more than £7,000 and organiser John Bramble, whose son Craig died from solvent abuse 17 years ago, said the support the family has had this year is ‘amazing’ and believes the event is getting bigger ‘year after year’.
Graham Beech, CEO of Action on Addiction, said: “It’s wonderful to see individuals like John doing so much to garner support to address the life-stopping condition that is addiction.
“Over the past three years, John and the other riders have raised over £10,000 for Action on Addiction, which has been extremely valuable in helping us support people to achieve sustainable recovery.”
