Plymouth Mega Ride postponed due to bad weather
Plymouth's Mega Ride motorcycle event has had to be postponed due to weather conditions and health and safety issues, says one of its organisers.
The annual event, which sees hundreds of bikes ride through Plymouth, will now be held on Sunday, August 12, 2012.
Russell Soper, an organiser of Mega Ride, said: "The grass area on Plymouth Hoe has been waterlogged and no trade stands or public would be allowed in this area.
"We can not run the risk of Traders Public and Bikes together. The Megaride team are gutted but hope you can make the new date.

"We feel it is better to be safe than sorry."
Russell commented on the poor weather conditions across the country as 65mph winds battered Devon.
"The weather is not good for bikers to be travelling and we have people coming from many miles away to attend this annual event," he added.
The event helps raise funds for various charities.
