Vespa rider David Hughes posted a wonderful story on this site in December last year (which you can still view) about his riding his Vespa GTS300 around Ireland and to the North of Scotland and beyond. He also mentioned his intentions for his next adventures for 2016 riding his Vespa to Jokkmok on the Arctic circle, which was also a great success. His inspiration for this trip was seeing the BBC 4 drama “The Bridge” which was about a fabulous superstructure linking Denmark with Sweden, which was easily enough to get him back in the saddle! This trip received some very welcome attention from local press as this time David was/is fundraising for The Walton Centre Charity, a worthy cause for the hospital that saved his son's life. Full details of his adventures, along with photos and copies of the press articles can be found at www.justgiving.com/DAVID-HUGHES83 where can also donate if you wish.
