Millennium Motorcycle Ride


Many photos are throughout the site. Any picture which is a link is usually a link to a higher-quality image when you click on it. Your browser has an option to save this file to disk.

In the flurry of interest following Simon's accident, we have had many requests for better quality images than are already on the site.

If the images on this page are not what you need, then please look here at the Picture Series. Drill down and you will find many images of high-quality there. We have selected a few of our own favourites and placed them lower down this page.

Rarely, we may have a higher-resolution version not on the site. If there is an image you particularly want, then please ask. But you will find that, if it is a good strong image, the highest resolution we have will be here already.
