The ninth annual Bike4Life Ride Out and Festival took place on Sunday (28th April), and an incredible £82,000 was raised for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
VIPs Carl Fogarty, Steve Parrish, Mike Tindall, Neil Hodgson, Dougie Lampkin and the Emergency Bikers Mark Hayes and Steve Forrest led the 3,500-strong group of bikers from Meole Brace in Shrewsbury to a Festival at RAF Cosford, where a crowd of around 10,000 supporters greeted them.
Entertainment at the Festival throughout the day came in the form of local bands playing on stage throughout the day; Wizzards of Oz, 3Sixty, The Delray Rockets and headliners, Soul Stripper.
The event, which was in partnership with Safer Roads Partnership and supported by CCM Motorcycles, also hosted performances from Extreme Bike Battle, and motorbike incident demonstrations from Midlands Air Ambulance Charity aircrew.
Amongst the action were corporate supporters, NEC Group, who have this year named Midlands Air Ambulance as their charity of the year, and joined the Ride Out as part of their many fundraising activities.
Visitors to the Festival also saw exclusive interviews with all the VIPs on stage, as well as meet and greet opportunities next to the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity helicopter
