Why shell out for Wirral Egg Run?

The Egg Run is cracked

It won't happen next year,

And I for one

Will let out a cheer.

I'm tired of the noise, the fumes,

the expense, the congestion

Instead of commuting to the hospital,

why don't they just send a donation?And save our planet

From their carbon emissions.

M Brown, Meols.

because when the egg run takes place it brings out well wishers along the route who also like to donate and so helps to raise far more money than if the bikers just made a donation.

Stop asking stupid questions

Obviously you're not a biker. Bikers have a bad reputation as it is and this act of kindness puts a smile of the faces of very sick children in hospital and those in children's homes not to mention some elderly people too.

This is done in their own time with donations of Easter eggs and money from their own pockets (as well as collecting donations along the route) and they have done this act of kindness for over 20 years and have never claimed expenses for it like politicians would have.

Even though I no longer attend this function I do still donate every year and will do again this year as I know a good few bikers that will still go ahead with or without the funding.

And I'm sure the police are just as disappointed as the bikers are.

So please before you slag off bikers for an act of kindness think of those sick children and picture their faces lighting up with the thought off a kind hearted gift from a big greasy hairy biker.....kinda melts your heart.

M Brown, I would like you to say that to the faces of the parents and children who will miss out this year. Actually I feel quite uncomfortable sharing this peninsula with such a bitter person, 2 hours a year of disruption helps so many. Yes I'm a biker and proud of what our community does. Just relieved the bitter and twisted are in the minority.

At last, we have found out where the BBC got their idea for 'One Foot in The Grave' from - miserable or what!

I've watched this event for many years now and to rejoice in its cancellation (which is not a done deal) just makes me shake my head. To see the crowds lining the roads cheering these bikers on is a fantastic sight.
Some of my friends have taken part and they are left delirious by the goodwill. How can this cancellation ever be celebrated, shame on you Brown ! I do give you some credit for giving your name, but you are still a grinch

Im delighted this egg run has been cancelled.
waste of public money.
if you want to give the kids an egg,then just go staright there and dont block up the end of my road for 2 hours and increasing the carbon footprint.
alternativel donate online.
to a typical non bike person,i couldnt care less.
i donate online and dont annoy other people by parading with a £5 egg on a bike.
if you were raising £100s of pounds fair enough but a £5 egg?
im sure the kids face would light up more if you bought them a life saving machine rather than a fattening easter egg.
GOOD RIDDANCE.

I sometimes wonder if some people aren't paid to write provocative nonsense to boost comment numbers and ad revenue. Surely nobody could be as miserable a killjoy or as poor a poet as "M Brown".

I think the fact that the organisers can't raise sponsorship shows how unpopular it is to the majority of the peninsula residents.

Also, there are some gifts hospitals can’t accept due to infection control and health & safety and one of those things is food (ie sweets and Easter eggs)

would just like to comment on the anti motorcycleists and there blinkerd and ill informed view of the poeple who give up there own time to help raise funds to help buy and maintain equipment for clatterbridge and other nhs services , do we hear poeple putting down the runners in some of these marathons that are run on a charity basis , no this is fine even though it can take 4-5 hours , how many poeple roadside make donations that otherwise wouldnt , how many shops and buisinesses would miss the extra trade in easter eggs bought buy residents to give to the passing bikers , ive attended this event for abought 16 years and it keeps getting bigger which means more money coming in people travel from europe to attend this run , some are saying it adds to polution do these people drive cars , go on planes on holiday , this is a good event for a good cause lets try to keep this thing rolling i for one will still go to new brighton and meet up with anyone who still goes , just seems abit stupid to stop something that has been doing good for so long

What is it with some wirrillians that they always have to try and ruin everything ? We have some great events on the Wirral such as the egg run , kite festival , pirate festival , Raleigh day , festival of lights (which was great) , we have the best beaches , best views , greatest sunsets at meols, a good football team , the best park in the country , best cycle routes , walks and more ...the sad thing is the only place that most people go to is to the
supermarket. Long live the Wirral egg run !
