Malcolm led the Barrie Sherras Memorial Run; a tribute to one of our most respected members whom we lost last year. Barrie was very involved in trials for most of his life but in addition, he was a good friend, mentor and advisor to many of us. He was riding on the road until shortly before his death at the age of 87.
We also remembered his son, Bill, on the same run. We were lucky to have Barrie's wife, Gladys, and Bill's wife, Kate along with us. Another son, Bob, was riding with us and the third son was having his own run at the same time in the USA!
Malcolm took us via Oakerthorpe, South Wingfield, Brackenfield, Ashover, Slack, Two Dales, Matlock and back to The George Inn George Inn, Ripley.
The run had to be shortened as a rider tumbled at a junction in Oakerthorpe. His wife was shaken but finished the run in the sweeper car while she recovered.
