This year we have mechanical support provided by the local AA representative, David Harvey and his team, who will be with you every step of the way should you need his assistance.

Sponsorship

Get sponsored by friends and family to help raise those all-important, life-saving funds. Each mission costs on average £2,200. If 1,000 riders raised £30 each in sponsorship money we would raise enough to fund 14 potentially life-saving missions.

How can you raise life-saving funds?

We understand that it can be hard to find the time to raise that all-important sponsorship, so this year, we have given our supporters the option to donate £30 at the time of their ticket purchase instead. Just select this option when adding your ticket to the basket, it could make all the difference.

For those of you that would like to take on the challenge and raise your own sponsorship for your local air ambulance just purchase a standard ticket and raise sponsorship by setting up your JustGiving page or downloading a sponsorship form.

Ride Safe

Think Safe, Ride Safe, Home Safe.

During 2018 we were dispatched to 528 Road Traffic Collisions. It is very important to us to promote the importance of safe riding within the biker community to help minimise the number of accidents that occur on the roads.

We work closely with the local authorities to ensure safety on the roads during our Motorcycle Runs. We will have Essex Police Outriders supporting us throughout the route as well as own our Motorcycle Run signage. Essex roads are always busy over the weekend, so please ride safely, watch your speed and respect other road users. Please help us encourage our message of safe riding and share #RideSafe across social media.

If this is your first time riding in a pack, you can view some YouTube videos on what to expect. Search for ‘Group Motorcycle Riding Tips’ by hoohoohoblin and ‘Tips on Riding in a Group – Motorcycle Riding’ by Howcast for handy tips.
