Taking place on Sunday 8th May 2016, Bike4Life Ride Out and Festival will see 5,000 bikers follow a route from Meole Brace in Shrewsbury to RAF Cosford. 

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity organises the biker event and is giving one lucky rider and their pillion the chance to win a host of prizes including leading the Ride Out alongside the VIP’s, a meet and greet pass to the VIP area at Meole Brace, a backstage pass to meet rock band Toseland at RAF Cosford, tickets to Motorcycle Live at the NEC Birmingham, British Moto GP tickets and a VIP gift bag featuring Dunlop and Bike4Life merchandise. 

Anyone who has signed up to the Bike4Life Ride Out 2016, or who signs up before Tuesday 26th April 2016 online at will be entered into the draw, with the winning rider and pillion to be announced on Wednesday 27th April 2016. 

2016 will be Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s sixth annual Ride Out, which coincides with the charity’s 25th anniversary celebrations. Through the support of RAF Cosford, the 2016 Festival will be held on the airfield, allowing for more visitors, displays, exhibitors, refreshments and more.

Jason Levy, fundraising and marketing director for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, and chair of the Bike4Life organising committee states: “Bike4Life is one of the biggest fundraising events in the charity’s calendar. 250 Ride Out tickets will cover the cost of a lifesaving mission, so every person that signs up is helping to keep our helicopters in the sky. 

“On top of a fantastic day out and the opportunity to help the charity, purchasing a ticket to the Ride Out will also give people the chance to win this amazing prize.”

Tickets for the Ride Out cost £10, which includes free entry to the Bike4Life Festival for the rider and a pillion. Tickets for the Festival alone are just £5 per person and children under 16 go free. The Festival will feature various trade stands, bike dealers, arena displays, live music and refreshments.

Bike4Life Ride Out and Festival 2016 is being run in collaboration with RAF Cosford, Safer Roads Partnership and West Mercia Police.
