Hundreds of bikers set to join forces for The Forces

Last summer over one hundred Surrey bikers took to the country lanes for the Wheels For Troops event, raising well over £1,000 for charities benefitting troops.

This year, organiser Mandy Jenkins is planning a bigger and better event. Over the weekend of 13-14 July 2013, bikers, cyclists and any other ‘wheel riders’ from around the county are invited join forces for a weekend of activities at the Fox Revived pub in Horley to raise funds.

On Saturday the main focus will once again be upon the many motorbike riders, with a 25mile ride out through Surrey show respect for the fallen at points along the route. Starting at 10am on the Saturday, participants will meet at The Fox Revived and enjoy a warm welcome with bacon butties available before the ride-out, before returning to the pub for a day of live music, great food, drink, craft stalls, fun and games which will continue on the Sunday, along with other types of Wheeled Transport, whilst events and activities in the large pub garden continue. Royal British Legion Riders will marshal Saturday’s ride-out. Participants are asked to make a £10 donation to take part in the ride and in return will receive a commemorative t-shirt.

Riders are asked to pre-register via email on [email protected].

Mandy Jenkins, organiser commented: “The charities are close to my family’s hearts, as my eldest son is currently serving in The Princes of Wales Royal Regiment, so I am particularly dedicated to this event, especially after the success of last year. I’m delighted that Jon and Paula from The Fox Revived have agreed to help us once again with the event – I’m sure it’s going to be a really special weekend and one that will raise much needed funds.” Jon Briscoe, who along with his wife, Paula, owns the Fox Revived pub, said: “Wheels For Troops was an amazing event last year; I was even persuaded to dust the leathers off and join in! When Mandy approached us about the event again for this year we were delighted to help. We’ve built a business here that’s about the community and the level of support we’ve seen for this event shows that the community cares – it will be an honour to help facilitate this and we’re really looking forward to it being bigger and better!”
