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.

i was wondering if the run is still going ahead, what with the bad weather. i dont mind rain and a bit of cold but the roads are bloody ridiculous at the moment and i cant see them getting much better by sunday.
i enjoyed it last year "having a chuckle at the volvo driver who welded himself to the crash barriers." and it would be a shame if it was cancelled.

well i made it today and what a lovely day to have a ride.
a pretty good turn out at the end of the day, "and no volvo in the crash barrier this year."  
said hello to a few people i've not seen for a while "heart of england rally seems soo long ago" and rode with some good friends, life dont get much better than that does it?
