David Holmes had ridden to meet friends at Dirt Quake II (June 2013), had a brilliant day and set off to ride home. Like many riders seem to do now, he clicked on his helmet cam. The camera would film his last moments.
The local police, with permission from David's family, have used the footage of the accident that took his life in a Think Bike campaign that is designed to make motorists realise that if they don't concentrate they can kill other road users in a second, and to remind motorcyclists that death lurks on virtually every ride. I'm a motorist and a road rider. It's a hell of a reminder.

The video is below. It is very shocking. You won't forget it in a hurry.
RIP David Holmes.
Condolences to his family and friends.
Ride safe everyone else. G
