The Arthur King Memorial Run

The run is a navigation and road safety run around Bedfordshire & Hertfordshire which is usually held in early May.

I first encountered Mr. King when I started going to the Chiltern Section meetings in the early '70s. Arthur King was part of the Chiltern Section' group of Scott owners whose progress along the highway was an event to be experienced. The sight of a bevy of Scotts "going well" is impressive enough but when you add the sound and the smell the result is something that isn't quickly forgotten.

Advancing years and failing eyesight eventually stopped him from riding but he still kept his enthusiasm and he could often be seen acompanying Roger to events such as the Banbury run.

Another passion was Scotts.
