David ‘Jock’ Loudon died in an accident on the Portbury Hundred 11 years ago.

Jock’s widow Kath Loudon has organised an annual Think Bike ride in his memory ever since, raising money for road safety charities.

Friends, family and other motorcycle enthusiasts gathered in Portishead’s Wyndham Way retail park on Sunday morning for this year’s event.

They set off towards Bristol, ending their trip at Clevedon with a late breakfast at 5 The Beach, near the pier.

More than £200 was raised from the event and it will go to Road Peace.

Kath said it was a ‘bittersweet’ event as always but added it ‘went really well’.
