  Longest line of scooters - world record set by UK scooter riders

  Humber Bridge, UK -- 840 scooter enthusiasts have taken part in an procession across the Humber Bridge during an event organised by the Yorkshire Scooter Alliance (YSA) with Cleethorpes and Grimsby Scooter Club  -
setting the new world record for the Longest line of scooters.

   The World's Longest line of scooter record attempt was held as part of an east coast ride from Whitby to Cleethorpes. It began at the tolls on the Humber Bridge and ended under a finish line on the south bank on the A15.

    Bikers from all over the north of England took part and paid 2 to enter, which will be donated to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. The Humber Bridge board agreed the money for the tolls could be paid up front and donated to the charity.    

   The previous Guinness World Record for the Longest line of scooters was 650.

   Organiser George Holdness said they were delighted with the event.

   The procession was organised by the Grimsby and Cleethorpes Scooter Scene (GCSS) and the Yorkshire Scooter Alliance (YSA).

    Mr Holdess said they had been joined by Andrew White from Leeds band the Kaiser Chiefs, who is a keen scooter enthusiast.

    Derek Cooper, a member of the YSA events team, said: "We attempted to do this in 2007 in the Isle Of White and we had over 1,000 scooters, but two cars got in the middle of us so the attempt was quashed. "This time we worked closely with the Humber Bridge board to make sure no cars interfered."

   Mr Cooper, who led the bikers across the bridge, said: "It was such a brilliant, unique event. "I was honoured to lead the procession over the bridge. The atmosphere was euphoric. When we got over the bridge there were loads of people waving and cheering and it was quite emotional.

   "There was a tear in my eye. The atmosphere was electric. It was as if we had achieved something huge. It was quite unbelievable."
