An Epic ‘Mopedathon’ from Land’s End to London
The Moped Express Way Army are a band of mostly mad bikers normally encountered riding Superbikes around the South of England.
However, they downsized were found during the middle of August on a ‘Mopedathon’. The ‘Army’ took to the roads riding 40 year old 50cc mopeds (slowly) which were put together by the team for the adventure along the coast roads between Land’s End and London which took six days.
They took on the challenge to raise funds for kidney cancer research and improve awareness of the disease. Lead rider Sylvio Vitaro, sadly, lost his brother Pat to kidney cancer in 2016 and this challenge was in his memory.
