Dozens of bikers turned out in force to remember Barnstaple’s Aiden Platt on Sunday.

Around 70 bikers gathered at North Devon Leisure Centre car park in the morning to ride out to Widemouth near Bude in memory of Aiden.

Aiden’s mum Mandy said: “It went really well. It was such an amazing day.

“Around 70 bikers took part and some cars too.

“Aiden’s brother Callum, their dad Robin, and cousin Rebecca, all rode pillion on bikes.

“We are just so flattered that so many people are still thinking of Aiden and supporting us to come to terms with what happened.

“Emma Griffiths, Pammie and Gord Douglas, Benjy Reed and Martin Fettis did an absolutely fantastic job of organising this.

“The whole family are so grateful to them. Everyone seemed to enjoy the day and it was a huge success.

“As well as remembering Aiden, a collection was organised in order to raise money for the British Bikers Relief Foundation, a charity which Aiden was a member of, and over £400 was raised from the collection and the sale of the t-shirts.

“The bikers all signed a t-shirt for me, John and Callum which was a lovely thought.”

Mandy thanked the organisers and everyone who took part in the rideout.

She added: “It just shows that the biking community of North Devon, and further afield, are not prepared to let one of their own be forgotten, especially when they were lost in such terrible circumstances.”
