The weather is pretty poor here in the West Midlands at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity HQ. Who is hoping for some bike friendly weather this weekend?
The organisers of one of the biggest biking events in the country, Bike4Life Ride Out and Festival in aid of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, is urging bikers who want to take part in the Ride Out, to pre-book their place online ASAP, to avoid disappointment.
The 23 mile Ride Out from Meole Brace in Shrewsbury, to RAF Cosford, is limited to 3,500 bikes, and with less than three weeks until the event, places are selling out fast.
Jason Levy from Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, and chair of the Bike4Life organising committee, explains: “Bike4Life is a very popular event amongst the biking community, raising awareness of biker safety, and lifesaving funds for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
“This year, the Ride Out will be led by former World Superbike champion and racing legend, Carl Fogarty, motorcycle and truck racing legend, Steve Parrish, adventure motorcyclist and author, Nick Sanders, and Boyzone popstar and professional drift driver and motorcycle enthusiast, Shane Lynch, so it really is an event not to be missed.”
The Ride Out will end at RAF Cosford for the Bike4Life Festival, which will feature performances from live bands including headliners The Wholls, a special skydive display from the Red Devils, and performances by Nitro Circus freestyle motocross star, Jamie Squibb.
To take part in the Ride Out simply click here to book your place. It only costs £10 per motorbike (pillions ride for free) with all proceeds raised going to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, who organise the event. For those who simply want to attend the Bike4Life Festival, entrance is £5 per person and under 16s go free.
If you book your Ride Out place by Tuesday 18th April 2017, you will be entered into the draw to win a host of prizes including; leading the Ride Out alongside VIP guests Carl Fogarty, Steve Parrish, Nick Sanders, and Shane Lynch, two tickets to Motorcycle Live 2017 at the NEC, two tickets to the Moto GP British Grand Prix at Silverstone in 2017, and a signed Carl Fogarty print and a range of Bike4Life merchandise.
