Fancy taking in some of the most breathtaking scenery in all UKdom? Fancy making up that respiratory deficit with a heartily bracing lungful of pure fresh Yorkshire air? Then, what better way to do exactly that than atop a dumpy little motorbike with an engine no better than a hairdryer?! That’s right, you too can get involved in the motorsports charity fundraising event of the year by signing up immediately for Medieval Monkeys 2013.
No idea what we’re talking about? Get used to it, nor have we! But for some tantalising clues see this very old story about last year’s event Medieval Monkeys 2012 or see this even older trailer for MM2012 based on footage of the positively prehistoric MM2011. Basically, a whole bunch of us will be getting together over the weekend of 29-30 June to ride comically undersized bikes the length and breadth of yorkshire, stopping in at various medieval type castles and abbeys and hopefully raising thousands of pounds for life-saving charity Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA).
There are many different ways to get involved, but the best way is to ride one of those strange little bikes yourself. This year we have access to a supply of brand new monkeybikes exclusively available from our friends at CG Chell for a mere £635 including VAT‚ with one year’s road tax paid up front – plus an extra £150 if you want your bike(s) resprayed in the corporate colours of your choice (we can stick your logo on for free). Please direct your enquiries to Honest Dicky Tysoe firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime to get yourself in the mood why not watch this lovely video of Yorkshire from the air (probably shot by the YAA boys when they should have been saving some bloomin’ lives or whatever) which includes favourite MM haunts such as Aysgarth, York Minster, Bolton Castle, Castle Howard, the Humber Bridge, Whitby Abbey and Scarborough.
