So, why did the chicken cross the road? To gather Easter eggs for charity is why!

Liz Timms our Compliance Officer is seen here wearing bright yellow instead of the usual bright orange that rail staff wear.  And instead of going by rail she took up two wheels to join the Anglesey Motorcycle Club and the Whistlestop Motorcycle Club in Rhuddlan on their annual Easter Egg run in North Wales and across the countryside of Anglesey on Sunday 26th March.

Dressed as an easter chicken along with more than 200 bikers taking to the roads for the annual easter egg run on a glorious sunny day with a large number of riders and their pillion passengers donning costumes and onesies, Liz being one of them.

The group of motorbikers started out near Rhyl and headed towards Benllech before travelling to Cemaes Bay where they stopped for around an hour.  The route to collect eggs and donations took them to the Four Crosses in Menai Bridge with children and families lining  the streets to cheer and wave the motor bikers on their way. The run carried on towards Holyhead, Trearddur Bay, Valley, and finished at Anglesey race circuit at Ty Croes.

The  journey took the bikers over some of the railway lines of the Anglesey Central Railway which have been unused since 1993, but have been left in situ and still stretch 17.5 miles across Anglesey connecting the port of Amlwch and the county town of Llangefni with the North Wales Coast Line at Gaerwen.

The treats donated prior to the event, some from staff of Real Skills Training Ltd, and those collected on the run will be delivered to children’s wards and day centres across North Wales, with cash being added to the fund raising pots along the way.
