During last week in Vredenburg a march was held to help bring awareness to the scourge of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, apparently the western cape province in South Africa has the highest incidence of this totally preventable syndrome in the world. Certainly not a record to be proud of.
The organisers, "FARR" the Foundation for Alcohol Related Research asked if there were any bikers willing to take part in the parade, unfortunately most of us were working but a good few turned up to show support for this worthy cause.
Because they were following a marching parade there was a lot of foot "paddling" and clutch and brake work. They were escorted down the main street of the town by the traffic department who made sure the traffic was diverted.
The march ended at the rugby club where I'm sure there were some welcome refreshments, well done to the bikers of the western cape, the few that were able to attend represented all of us and hopefully helped to focus attention on fetal alcohol syndrome.
