Registration for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s Bike4Life Ride Out and Festival, taking place on Sunday 23rd April 2023, has now opened, and motorcyclists are being encouraged to sign up as places on the much-anticipated Ride Out are limited.
The event, which is sponsored by The Bike Insurer, is organised by and raises funds for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity in association with the Safer Roads Partnership. Now in its 11th year, the Bike4Life Ride Out is established as one of the best ride out and festival motorbike experiences in the country. The Ride Out sees 3,500 motorbikes ride 23 miles from Meole Brace in Shrewsbury to RAF Cosford airfield, home to the incredible Bike4Life Festival.
The Festival will include live music, breath-taking displays, exhibitions, stalls, refreshments and more. With more than 6,000 additional people attending, it’s a great day out for bikers, families and the local community.
Emma Gray, Chief Operating Officer for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “We created Bike4Life with the Safer Roads Partnership to give our supportive motorbike fans a really fantastic day out, and to also raise awareness of biker safety as sadly we tend to and airlift motorcyclists from road traffic collisions regularly.
“Due to the increasing popularity of the event and the fact we are limited to 3,500 motorbikes in the ride out, we would encourage those interested to register now to avoid disappointment.”
Ed Bevis, director of The Bike Insurer, added: “Having attended Bike4Life in 2022, we could see just how popular this event is among bikers from across the UK so are delighted to be supporting it in 2023. We remain committed to the grass-roots biking community at The Bike Insurer and can often be found covering events from the smallest ride outs for local biking clubs up to the largest charity events, such as Bike4Life.”
Vicki Bristow from the Safer Roads Partnership, added: “It’s great to support this worthwhile event and have the opportunity to speak to the huge number of bikers that attend about biker safety. It’s a great day out, no matter what your area of biking so sign up and join us.”
