Despite many of the Reds only passing their CBTs in order to make the trip, the entire team managed to ride their Vespas from Land’s End to John O’Groats last month – and no-one crashed (until afterwards).
Squadron Leader Mike Ling said: “We made it from Land’s End to John O’Groats in the four days that we planned, arriving in John O’Groats at 1700 on Sunday 3 October.
“The journey was an amazing experience with some incredible scenery to take in, albeit through rather rain-soaked visors for the most part!”
