Police in Gloucestershire, England recently swooped in after complaints of an illegal rubber duck race. Turns out these animals were raising money for “Blood Bikes.” What’s that? A group of motorcycle riders who operate a free blood and medical equipment delivery service to hospital facilities 24-hours a day. Wait, what?!
Apparently, neighbors were less ticked about the race and more about the riders being loud, revving their engines, and parking their bikes on the grass. Oh no! What a nightmare. How dare they try to raise money to help save lives.
In the end, the cops were cool about it, told the bikers to move their hogs, and to keep it down. And yes, the organizers say they’ll go through proper channels to set up next year’s Rubber Duck Race.
