Tragic death of one of our members – Martin Dixon

Last week we were notified of the tragic death of one of our motorcycle members Martin Dixon. Martin was involved in a road traffic collision whilst riding for Bloodrun EVS operating in the Cleveland and North Yorkshire area, as a result of which he suffered injuries that proved fatal. To say we are devastated at this sad news is an understatement.

Firstly, our thoughts are with his wife Tina, son Martin and daughter Hannah as well as his wider family and our friends and colleagues at Bloodrun EVS. On behalf of us all at RoADAR Cleveland I would like to offer our deepest sympathy.

Martin joined the RoSPA group in 2012 in order to gain his advanced riding qualification specifically so he could ride for 'Bloodrun EVS'. He set his stall out to achieve the highest standard and obtained a RoSPA Gold Award. He has only recently requalified and maintained his Gold standard; the requirement with RoSPA is that members are re-examined every three years. His examiner wrote 'A nice ride and very deserving of the Gold standard that he has retained'.

Martin was 'Mr Nice Guy', sometimes very quiet but his enthusiasm for motorcycling and in particular the Bloodrun EVS organisation was obvious to all who knew him. The fact that he has been involved in this tragic incident whilst riding for Bloodrun EVS and the benefit of the wider community says everything about Martin's ethos.
