A MEMORIAL ride out for a “loveable” 19-year-old biker is to be held on Easter Sunday.

Dozens of bikers are set to ride through Hampshire in memory of Nick Brisland, who was killed in a crash on April 24, 2015.

Organized by his family to raise money for charity, the ride will start at Hedge End McDonald’s where the group will ride to Portsdown Hill and then onto Loomies Moto Cafe in West Meon.

Nick’s mum, Ria Brisland, lives in Southampton and has organized the ride-out to raise money for her organisation, which aims to install defibrillators at every popular bike spot up and down the country.

Speaking of her son, she said: “It’s incredibly hard everyday but we get through it.

“He was a character, a really loveable, genuine person.

“He really lit the room up, he was the most comfortable person in his own skin that I have ever met.”

This year will be the first year Ria will be riding the route herself.

The ride is to raise money for Nick Brisland Trust.

Nick Brisland Trust was set up by Ria, who is working together with Loomies Cafe, to raise enough funds to install defibrillators in popular motorbike locations.

The trust also aims to promote safer roads, and offers support to families who have lost someone though a road traffic accident.

The organisation also helps to raise money for the Red Lipstick Foundation - a charity for supporting people through suicide loss or sudden traumatic death.

The riders will meet at 12pm on Sunday, April 21, at Hedge End McDonald’s on Tollbar Way.

The group will then ride 13 miles to Portsdown Hill in Fareham, taking a scenic route.

Once regrouped, the ride will travel to West Meon and stop at Loomies Cafe.

A raffle will be held at the cafe to help raise further funds for Ria’s cause.

The ride is open to anyone who would like to attend the event.
