Thank you to all that took part in the ride. 18 riders braved the cold weekend to complete the trail.

On 2nd & 3rd March 2013 we left Ace Cafe, London and travelled to Maharaja Dulip Singh Ji's Estate, Thetford. The riders explored the Ancient House Museum of Thetford Life. After spending a few hours here, the team rode to Derby Singh Sabha Gurdwara to visit the National Sikh Heritage Centre & Holocaust Museum. 

On Sunday morning, the convoy left Derby heading towards the Brecon Beacons, Wales.

Maharaja Dulip Singh Estate

Dalip Singh bought a 17,000 acre country estate at Elveden on the border between Norfolk and Suffolk, close to Thetford, in 1863. He fell in love with Elveden and the surrounding area and restored the church, cottages, and school. He transformed the run-down estate into an efficient game preserve of approximately 17,000 acres and it was here that he gained his reputation as the fourth best shot in England. The house was re-modelled into a quasi-oriental palace where he lived the life of a British aristocrat.

National Sikh Heritage Centre & Holocaust Museum

During the 1980s a number of young Sikhs went on field trips to London museums and places of Anglo-Sikh interest up and down the country organised by SCYS (Sikh Community and Youth Service), Nottingham.

Nearly three decades later, these Sikhs, pioneer to tell the British-Sikh version of their heritage in a modern setting.

The core team has a local and national presence from West Midlands, Warwickshire, London, West Yorkshire and East Midlands.

The strategy of leaving a hard legacy to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji (Sikh holy scriptures) has been achieved by the creation of the first National Sikh Museum.

Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara, Derby has catalysed this energy and commitment to setup the first National Sikh Heritage Centre and Holocaust Museum.
