South Coast Hospice’s annual Ride for Remembrance took place from Southcoast Mall on Sunday.

Despite the cool weather, 67 bikers took to the back road from Izotsha, through Gamalakhe and past Margate down to Pistols.

They then joined the Main Road back to Seaslopes and headed back down to Douglas Mitchell Sports Pub.
