More than 200 masked bikers stage ‘Mad Max’ rideout through London streets

A huge convoy of more than 200 high-powered motorbikes and quad bikes tore through London streets in scenes likened to Mad Max Fury Road.
The eight-mile ‘Halloween Rideout’ saw riders run red lights, set off fireworks and even mount pavements, according to witnesses.
One Twitter user said, ‘Just had a Mad Max scene going on down my street, hundreds of bikes and quad bikes going down the road (and the wrong side).’

Midori Cumming, 45, was out trick-or-treating with her two sons, aged five and seven, and said they had to ‘run for their lives’.

Cumming told the Evening Standard, ‘We were standing waiting to cross when they suddenly came round the corner on the pavement.
‘They couldn’t see us, we were only five metres away, and I just pushed my sons back against a shop front and they shot past us.

‘My sons could have been killed. When we got home we were all shaken up. It was terrifying and the noise was deafening.’
