Riders for Health to attend BMF shows in 2013

Posted on


Riders for Health, the official charity of MotoGP™, have added two new UK motorcycle shows to their events calendar for 2013: The British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF) Show,18th-19thMay, and BMF Tailend,14th-15th September, both to be held at the Peterborough Arena (formerly The East of England Show ground.

Riders will have a stand in the new Adventure and Overland Touring area with their off-road fundraising ride to Zambia.Experience Africa is not your typical off-road motorcycle tour. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the inspiring work being done in Zambia by Riders for Health and see how motorcycles are saving lives in Africa.

Riders for Health have also launched a new raffle for 2013 to win a free place on Experience Africa in either May or November 2014. For your chance to win this incredible prize worth £4,800, visit Riders for Health’s stand at either of the BMF Shows held at Peterborough and buy a ticket for just £1.

Riders will also be selling raffle tickets at Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show,British Superbikes races, Day of Champions and the British MotoGP and World Superbike races at Silverstone. The raffle will be drawn at the BMF Tailend Show on 15th September.

The BMF Show in May is Europe’s largest outdoor motorcycle show, with over 40,000 people expected to attend over the weekend. The Tailend Show is the end of season party for motorcyclists and traders across the country.

Riders for Health will be joined at the BMF events by special guests and previous Experience Africa participants who will share their stories from the ride. Visit Riders’ stand in the Adventure and Overland Touring area to have a chat with the team and see a Yamaha AG200 on display. The motorcycles that are ridden on Experience Africa are the same bikes that health workers use to deliver vital health care in Zambia.

At the BMF Show in May, there will even be the chance to sign up for an outdoor practise ride on an AG200. Ride leader Gary Taylor will talk you through the basics of riding off-road and explain why the AG200 is so perfectly suited to the harsh African terrain. Spaces will be limited for the rides so make sure you put your name down early at Riders’ stand.

Riders have teamed up with the BMF in the hope of introducing many more people to the charities’ life-saving work. Riders for Health provide health workers in Africa with reliable motorcycles so that they can reach rural villages with vital health care on a regular basis. They teach health workers to ride safely in the difficult terrain and local men and women are trained to maintain the vehicles so that they never break down.
