UK360 Ride for Heroes 2012.
Dates: Thursday 23 August 2012 (6am Start) to Tuesday 28 August 2012 (8pm Finish)
The plan is for a core group of motorbikers (and pillions) to ride around the UK in 6 days to raise as much money as possible for Help for Heroes. The group is made up of ex-forces, friends of the fallen, firemen, patch brats (kids of serving soldiers) and friends who are just mad enough to try it.
We ride for respect, rememberance and for the Heroes past and present! Please support us by spreading the word to other bikers out there. The more we have supporting us en-route the more money we can raise!
The ride will start and end at Birkenhead TA Centre, Wirral and will follow the line of the coast, as much as we can within the alloted time period. We are starting and finishing at the Birkenhead TA Centre as this was the unit for Steve Boote, an RMP killed in Afghan, and a very close friend of two of our organisers.
The route will be set and published so you will be aware of where we are expected, and when, should anyone wish to ride one of the stages or sections with us. We would like as many bikes as possible to join us en-route to show support and ride for respect and rememberance.
We are hoping veterans and recovered soldiers will join us for the ride, and should you know of any recovered veteran or soldier who would like to join us but is now unable to ride their own bike due to their injury - please let us know. We would be privileged to arrange transport with us, whether as a pillion or with the support crew.
We would love to have the support of MCN as we are all avid readers. Our website is under development and in the meantime you may find us on FB by following this link: http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/275399349161523/
Many thanks, Rachel, Paul, Phil, Mandy, Nick and Kerry - The organisers of UK360 Ride for Heroes 2012.
