Santa’s been and gone!

Santa’s been and gone

LAST SUNDAY 20 Harleys and 40 Santas met in Pedreguer for Free Spirits HD’s annual Santa Run.

Prizes for ‘Best Dressed Bike’ and ‘Best Dressed Santa’ were awarded to double-winner Nigel Webb and after a few questions were raised as to whether Nigel had bribed the judge, the group set off in the direction of the Marina Baixa.

After weaving through Alcalali, Jalon and Lliber, the bikers took the N-332 from Benissa to Altea before stopping for coffee at Diferens and enjoying some delicious homemade shortbread, baked by group member Anne Tindle.

From Altea, the entourage headed to Benidorm where they rode along the Playa de Levante to great reception from the public who shouted, waved and even high-fived riders and pillions.

The group then made their way to Calpe where they were joined by more friends and family at Bar Grizzly’s for lunch and live music.

Free Spirits HD is an English-speaking Harley Davidson enthusiast group of over 50 members based across the Marina Alta.

The male and female group – made up of riders and pillions – enjoy a ride out at least every other weekend throughout the year, winding the forgotten country corners and the cool coastal routes.

The routes are well planned, with coffee and lunch stops on the way.

In return for a donation to Cancer Care Javea, Free Spirits HD’s chosen charity for year 2017/ 2018, you can join in the fun…

The group can arrange to escort you to that special event or perhaps you’d like to treat a loved one to a ride out for a day:

* Weddings
* Group ride-ins
* Birthday celebrations
