pioneers complete London to brighton run

Two New Milton legends competed in the London to Brighton Run on Sunday – Don Rickman on his 1902 Ariel and Sammy Miller MBE on his 1913 Alldays Matchless. Pioneer Run machines are only legible if they had been made before 1914, just before the first world war.

Competitors were there from all over Europe and the total entry was 339.

Most competitors made it all the way to Brighton.  The weather was bitterly cold but at least there was no rain and everybody enjoyed the Finish and Assembly Area on Marine Drive at Brighton.

The Mayor of Epsom and Ewell and the Mayor of the City of Brighton and Hove were there to welcome the riders and present the trophies in front of the vast crowd gathered in the Presentation Area.
