Bikers invited to ride out for Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance

Bikers are being invited to take part in the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance’s third annual charity motorcycle run across its home counties of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire later this year.

Following the success of the Ride to Save Lives event over the last 2 years, the charity is hoping this year’s ride-out will see a record number of bikers taking part.

This year’s route will cover 62 miles and will start and finish at Newark Showground. Marshalling will be provided throughout the route and refreshments are available at the showground.

There are only 500 places available with registration taking place through the charity’s website.

Each year the largest category of incidents the charity’s Ambucopter is dispatched to are road traffic collisions, with many involving bikes. Despite accounting for just 2% of traffic on UK roads, motorcyclists are the most vulnerable road users, accounting for 20% of all road deaths.

Fundraising Manager Gemma Shaw said: “We always look forward to our charity ride out and it’s a great feeling meeting bikers who are raising funds for our Charity, whilst doing something they love.

“Whatever make and model of bike you ride, it is great to get bikers from all communities getting together for a fantastic event which is a lot of fun. It is a great sight, seeing hundreds of colourful bikes travelling together through our local towns and villages.

“Bikers also recognise the important role of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. We hope they never have to see the inside of our helicopter, but if they do need us we want to be there for them.

“As a Charity, we rely on the support from the public to do this, and our annual Ride to Save Lives is just one of the ways in which bikers can help to raise vital awareness and funds.”

It costs just £12.50 entry per bike and all money raised from this event will go directly to the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance to ensure we can continue to save lives 365 days of the year.
