Ride To The Wall 2009

Sorry if this has already been asked, but I looked through the posts and couldn't find it mentioned..Is anybody planning to go to the Ride To The Wall 2009? Did anybody go last year?

Someone who is involved in organising it mentioned it to me over the weekend. It's this Saturday 10th October and is a ride from Drayton Manor to the National Arboretum in Staffordshire to raise money for the upkeep of the memorial and to remember those soldiers who have lost their lives in action since the end of WW2.

From what I understand, last year was the first one and it was expected to have around 800 bikes attend, but over 3000 turned up on the day.

There is a website giving info and providing photos and videos (including news coverage) from last year at:

Anybody else heard of it??

RTTW 2009

This year's Run To The Wall was even bigger than last year. Estimated at nearly 6000 bikes set off from Drayton Manor on Sat 10 Oct 09 for the National Arboretum in Alrewas.

The day was to pay respect and remember all service personnel that have have laid down their lives for our freedom.

There was a mix of all bikes from CG125s to Triumph Rockets, although most were Hogs, taking part in a well organised run. The service was short but fitting, and all that attended paid tribute from all of the biking community.

Roll on RTTW 2010. www.rttw.org for more info.
