ALPS CHALLENGE SEND-OFF

2 June 2011 – A beautiful morning today at the Disabled Motoring UK Headquarters in the grounds of Ashwellthorpe Hall beckoned Dan McIntyre, the first of the intrepid riders of the 1932 Invalid Tricycle to start the 1500 mile journey from London to the Alps. Filmed by a television crew and noted by newspaper reporters, staff of the HQ and some villagers, this morning saw the start of this 1500 Alps Challenge rally to recreate a journey undertaken on the same tricycle in 1947 by “Denny” Denly, one of the founders of this motoring organisation.
