The organisers of the 30th Martin Jennings Memorial Run are hoping that the event will go ahead on Sunday after it was postponed last weekend due to inclement weather.

David Saunby, who arranges the motorcycle run from Truro to Falmouth each year, has said he is hoping the weather conditions will be more favourable this Sunday.

Mr Saunby told the Packet: "The right decision was made to postpone the run last Sunday, due to the rain front which came in mid morning, making riding conditions very hazardous, especially for the inexperienced motorcyclists, riding in convoy amongst such a large group."

He made the announcement on Friday that last weekend's ride would be postponed, following poor weather forecasts, when he wrote on social media: "Sorry guys but I just can't risk it."

Up to 2,000 bikers are expected to take part in the run, which will be raising funds for Children's Hospice South West and Cornwall Cancer Care.

It was started in 1988 in memory of Martin Jennings, of Beacon near Camborne, who lost his life while competing in the 1987 Isle of Man Manx Grand Prix, and has continued to grow every year since.

If the rescheduled run goes ahead, riders will begin meeting from 8.30am at the new eastern park and ride car park in Truro, before setting off at 10am.

For safety reasons the morning route will be kept, but the run will be coming down the A30, to Chiverton at approximately 2pm, before arriving at Beacon in Camborne at 2.15pm for a 15 minute stop and a minute's silence, in memory of Martin Jennings and all other bikers that have died on the roads of Cornwall.

From there the route will continue via Troon, Helston, Rame, Longdowns, Treliever, the Penryn bypass. Then into Falmouth via Ponsharden, North Parade, Greenbank, High Street, Killigrew Street, Western Terrace, Melville Road, Castle Drive, Cliff Road, Penance Road, and Western Terrace, finishing at the Falmouth Recreation Ground at 3.45pm.
