Over 3,500 motorcyclists undertook an organised 23-mile route from Meole Brace in Shrewsbury to RAF Cosford in Shropshire, in the Bike4Life Ride Out on Sunday 30th April 2017. The event helped to raise an amazing £73,800 for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
The Ride Out which was led by 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 Shane Lynch, concluded at RAF Cosford, where over 10,000 people attended the Bike4Life Festival.
At the Festival, which is supported by the Safer Roads Partnership, bikers and visitors were entertained by live bands; Bang Bang Romeo, Hollowstar, Mallen, Quartz, and headliners The Wholls, and a stunning freestyle motocross display from Jamie Squibb of Nitro Circus.
In addition, bikers were treated to live interviews and meet and greets with the VIPS, a food Festival and tours of the air ambulance helicopter which was displayed upon entrance to the Festival.
The £73,800 raised for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, will help to fund 30 air ambulance missions across the region.
