Who is Fred Hill?
Fred Hill, a teacher of mathematics, died in prison on the 10th February 1984 aged 74. He died while fighting against bureaucratic interference with his choice to ride a motorcycle without wearing a crash helmet. He started his passive campaign in 1976 and after 31 prison sentences he suffered a heart attack and subsequently died while still in custody. Although not against the wearing of helmets, MAG believes in the fundamental right of the individual to choose.

SO NO RUN FROM NOTCUTTS AS LAST YEAR ? OR IS THIS A SEPARATE RUN ?

Unfortunately what Chugger posted is what I did for the run last year. All they've done is changed 2008 to 2009. So far I have had no information on ANY Midlands MAG events at all, so nothing is on the website to look at.

Obviously if anyone tells me what is actually happening, I'll update the website immediately. Although I presume it's the same set up as last year.

Don't forget the run this Sunday, the weather isn't looking too good but they've been wrong before (fingers crossed).

Hi, Vic
Black Country MAG will be meeting at the Park Inn as usual  planning to set off at 11am to join Eddie and the West Midlands convoy at Bewell Head Working men's Club.
It has been posted on the Home page of our web site, along with details of a June rally that we are in the process of planning ('Back from the Dead Again').

Just received a call from Eddie = Fred Hill run is cancelled, as snow forecast.

Please pass the message on. I am also texting any that I have a contact number for.

UPDATE.

The run has been postponed until the snow clears for safety reasons.
A new date will be set once the weather improves.

Updates on West Mids site:
