He ran Horizon Rider Training in the town, teaching hundreds of people how to safely ride bikes.

His funeral took place on Monday, and as a mark of respect hundreds of his friends and family attended.

They met first at the Horizon Rider Training centre to form a convoy behind the hearse as it journeyed to Crownhill Crematorium in Milton Keynes.

There was a celebration of his life back at his training centre after the funeral. Hundreds of bikers revved their engines as the hearse came past their guard of honour.

One rider said: “He was an iconic biker around Milton Keynes and we just want to give him a proper send off.”
