Whiteknights Yorkshire Blood Bikes are delighted to launch “Ivanhoe” – a BMW R1200RTP to the Whiteknights Fleet. At a launch event at Tapton Hall in Sheffield, the Trustees of Ivanhoe Lodge formally handed over the keys and released, “Ivanhoe,” into South Yorkshire operational Blood Bike service. It forms part of a total donation totalling £30,000 to run and maintain the machine for the next three years.
Our sincere thanks to the Trustees of Ivanhoe Lodge for supporting Whiteknights Yorkshire Blood Bikes in this way.

Breaking News… from Whiteknights Yorkshire Blood Bikes. Following a busy period for Whiteknights Yorkshire Blood Bikes over the festive period, we go into the first week of January with an urgent national relay with other Blood Bikes groups to transfer Pathology items from Edinburgh to St James’ Hospital Leeds.
Pictured from just moments ago whilst on the relay section from Scotch Corner to Leeds is Whiteknights Advanced – Qualified Volunteer Rider, Maurice Greenwood. Today marks the end of Maurice’s first week on duty for Whiteknights.
Speaking tonight Maurice said, “I’ve been on standby over the New-Year period from the 30th and its been very busy. I’ve received multiple call-outs and found it both challenging and exhilarating. It’s been very different from the type of volunteering I’ve done in the past – I’ve loved every minute and can highly recommend volunteering for Blood Bikes. I look forward to my next time on duty.”
