Islay Charity Ride Website

The Islay event the website I'm going to link to today is about is already over, although that doesn't mean that there won't be another repeat: After a first Islay & Jura Distillery Ride in 1996 a second edition took place 17th to 21st July 2008.

The ride is in aid of Islay and other charities, in 2008 it was in aid of the Weipers Centre for Equine Welfare and the Islay and Jura Sick Children’s’ Fund.

I actually saw some of the participants on their way to Kilchoman distillery during the last day of my holiday on Islay in July, but at that moment it didn't ‘click’ and I didn't take any pictures of them.

When I recently discovered the website I was pleased to see how much information and pictures are available from the ride: After the introduction on the homepage there is a small gallery with a few general impressions of Islay but more importantly there is a full itinerary of the ride with individual pages for each day. Many more pictures can be found here as well as on the ride day links from the homepage.

I hope you'll enjoy the site and find a few interesting pictures and information on this chilly autumn evening.
