Bikers tour British Isles for life-saving ambulances

Posted on


A team of eight motorcyclists from road safety charity, the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists) are undertaking a sponsored tour of the British Isles in June to promote motorcycle safety and raise money for the Association of Air Ambulances. 
The ride begins on Monday 18 June, Ride to Work day, from the Ace Cafe London, finishing on Sunday 24 June at the Bikefest event in Shrewsbury.
Over the week-long tour, they will be visiting Christchurch, Bournemouth, Bassetts Pole, Newcastle, Glasgow and Belfast.
On Friday 22 June, Belfast will see a world record attempt for the most makes and models of motorcycles in a single parade. Supporters include the Quay Vipers Motorcycle Club, Adelaide Insurance Services, Days Hotel, Stena Line, Fiat and Bridgestone Tyres.
IAM chief executive Simon Best said: “Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable road users, but anyone that rides appreciates the enjoyment, convenience, and freedom that motorcycling brings.
“Our aims are to teach riders how to continue to enjoy their riding safely, and to better educate all road users to understand the needs of the individuals they share the road with. We are delighted to be supporting the Association of Air Ambulances, and raising money for this vital cause. Tragically, riding does sometimes go wrong and the quick response service they provide is vital in saving lives.”
