This year the Sportster Sickness UK's Big One had us ripping up the roads down to Donington Park.

The Big One is an annual event where hundreds of Harley Davidson Sportster riders from all over the country get together for an amazing meet. I started in Barnsley and steadily rode down, meeting more and more bikers on the way. I started the day riding solo, but by the last meeting spot I was lost in the mob of hundreds of bikes. I think we ended up with 650+ bikes riding the track at Donington - the majority of them being the humble little sporty.
We also had a special guest along for the ride. Holly Plant has been bravely battling breast cancer and wanted to tick a Harley ride off her bucket list. I think she did it in spectacular fashion!
Once again I want to shout out a massive thanks to James Bricknell and all the admin team that slogged behind the scenes to make this all possible. Also massive thanks to the staff at Donington and everyone else that participated to make this memorable day happen. You all rock.
