After much uncertainty over the past couple of days a decision has been made over whether the Martin Jennings Memorial Motorcycle Run will go ahead tomorrow.

The popular annual motorbike run, which is estimated to have raised more than £130,000 for charity over the last 34 years, had been due to take place on Sunday (September 12), but organiser David Saunby had been concerned about the weather forecast for rain.

Now, having studied the forecasts, including that of the Kernow Weather Team, Mr Saunby said he had taken the decision to postpone the event for a week.

Apologising to those who had been planning to take part tomorrow, he said: "With weather systems changing all the time there has now been rain forecast by Kernow Weather Team, so in the interests of safety, I have no alternative but to postpone tomorrow's run.

"I can't take the gamble with people's lives, especially the inexperienced riders."

The run will instead be moved to its planned postponement date, next Sunday, September 19.

All other timings will remain the same.

Because of the pedestrianisation of Falmouth's main street from 11am to 4pm, the run's original start time of 10.30am at the Tregurra Park and Ride Car Park at Truro, will be delayed until 11am, so as not to arrive at the finish in Falmouth before 4pm.

The morning route of the run is kept secret to keep the ride as safe as possible, but the afternoon route is as follows.

A30 Chiverton; 2.30pm, Camborne; 2.45pm, Beacon Square; 2.50pm, where there will be a brief stop, and a minute's silence in memory of Martin Jennings, of Beacon, leaving Beacon at 3.15pm.

The run then proceeds up through Troon, Nine Maidens, arriving at Helston Turnpike at 3.30pm, then onto Falmouth, via Rame, Longdowns, Treliever, Penryn Bypass, Hill Head, Ponsharden, North Parade, Greenbank, High Street, Market Street, Church Street, Arwenack Street, Bar Road, Castle Drive, Cliff Road, Spernon Wyn Road, Pennance Road, Western Terrace, finally finishing at the Falmouth Recreation Ground at 4.15pm, where the rugby club will be open for refreshments etc.

Around 50 members of the Martin Jennings Marshals Association will act as direction marshals, and also ride in pairs every 100 bikes within the run, to help keep it as safe as possible for all those taking part.

Well over 1,000 motorcycles are expected to take part in Cornwall's biggest biggest motorcycle run, on a countywide ride in memory of Martin Jennings who sadly died when competing in the 1987 Isle of Man Manx Grand Prix.

The 34th run will be raising money for Guide Dogs for The Blind, with the target being to raise £10,000 to sponsor a puppy through to being handed over to its new owner.

Last year's run raised £9,200 for the Cornwall Air Ambulance, with the help of a Just Giving page, meaning spectators could also contribute.
