Grim Riders National Parks 2009

The aim of this ride is for you to visit some of the 15 National Parks of Britain. The parks may be visited at any time of the year and in any order. You do not need to visit more than one on any particular day or trip. You do need to visit a specific place within each national park, and provide proof of your visit by photographing your motorcycle at that place.
