5,000 motorcyclists took part in a “ride of respect” in honour PC Andrew Harper. His widow led the ride with her brother on PC Harper’s bike, and can be seen biking over Abingdon Bridge, nearest the camera.
Crowds had gathered on the route through Abingdon from about midday. The first bikes rode through at about 12:30.
Motor Cyclists came from many places. One flew the Flag of Gibraltar.
There were not just motor cycles. At one place in the convoy there were a variety of three wheeled vehicles including a boat.
The Mayor of Abingdon was there with his chain and motorcycle gear to applaud the convoy.
Police Motorcyclists were taking part, helping to marshall the event, and be part of the ride.
People applauded the riders who came through in batches of about 500. The last group through were at about 4 pm. It was amazing and my selection of pictures does not do it justice.
Here is a short video showing riders coming through Abingdon.
