Barbersride event returns for 2018

Published: 05 July 2018

Annual charity event Barbersride is back for 2018 to bring a collection of rideouts and barbering seminars to the UK for an entire five days next month. 

Last year, Barbersride raised over £10,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital and The Lions Barber Collective. This year they're raising money for The Alder Hey Children's Hospital Charity, with already over £600 in the pot so far.

The founders Richie Finney (Captain Fawcett Emporium owner), Colin Petrie (Hard Grind founder and owner) and Wez Jones (The Heart-break Club owner) grew the initiative from their passions for barbering and motorbikes.

Speaking on why Harley-Davidson was the ideal main sponsor, Colin said: "Harleys have always been the dream bike, since I was a kid. They're just fantastic bikes, well made and a lot my friends ride them as well. Harleys are a unity between people, like a collective group."
