Charity receives fantastic support from the motorcycling community in one of its most popular annual fundraising events.
Keen bikers are circling Sunday 14 July in their diaries - this year’s date for the 14th Devon Air Ambulance Motorcycle Ride Out. Starting points for the popular event are once more at Trago Mills in Newton Abbot, or Evans Transport in Bideford, with the Ride Out finishing at The Den in Teignmouth.
Bikers will travel approximately 80 miles through beautiful Devon countryside and can look forward to stalls, refreshments and live music at the Teignmouth destination. Family, friends and non-bikers are welcome to join riders at The Den to enjoy an afternoon of family-friendly stands, including from Bridge Motorcycles - which is once more sponsoring the event - as well as a bouncy castle and ice cream for little ones.
‘We’re looking forward to inviting our motorcycling supporters to enjoy the stunning Devon scenery once again this year,’ says Fundraising and Communications Director at Devon Air Ambulance, Caroline Creer. ‘We would like to thank our headline sponsor, Bridge Motorcycles, for their continued support.’
‘Our Ride Out is all about promoting safe riding to the growing motorcycle community. It’s not a race, but a fun ride out and a chance to enjoy the beautiful Devon countryside. We receive such amazing support from the motorcycle community.’
Pre-entry is still available via the Charity’s website at just £5 per entry, which includes a limited-edition event t-shirt. Entrants can still sign up on the day for £5, but entry won’t include a t-shirt, which will instead be available for £5 each at The Den subject to availability. Limited edition pin badges at just £1 will also be available on the day. Sign up here: bit.ly/MCRideOut2019
Devon Air Ambulance Trust is the Charity which raises the funds to keep Devon’s two Air Ambulances flying. The service is 27 years old and is funded by the generosity of the community, businesses and friends of Devon. Last year it cost £7.5 million to keep the service flying, helping 1109 patients, of which 11% were children. The Exeter based aircraft operates until 2am every day and since it started flying into the hours of darkness over 118 patients have been helped at night time, using our growing network of Community Landing Sites.
