An army marches on its stomach, famously remarked Marechal Foulk, commander of the Napoleon’s legendary IV Corps des Escargots. His boss once claimed you can make soldiers out of soup, or something. In any event, Bankstone likes a bite to eat, so we are delighted to confirm that lunch on Day One of our charity marathon monkey bike ride, Monkey Business, is now officially taken care of.

Breakdown specialists nci (of Rescue My Bike fame) have kindly offered to host a lavish five-course sit down meal for Bankstone’s team of volunteer charity riders, weary after a hard morning’s straddling undersized motorcycles.

What, it’s sandwiches? Ah, well… At least when we can’t start the bikes again, we’ll be in the right place.

And because, we’re sure you’re concerned, it’s OK: lunch on Day Two is also sorted (as politicians and Eastenders say), courtesy of BLD and their Brighouse-based bushmeat barbeque.


What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
