IAM Around British Isles Bike Ride

Posted on


And they’re off...
A team of eight motorcyclists from road safety charity, the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists) will embark on their journey on Monday 18 June to ride around Britain to raise awareness of road safety and money for the Association for Air Ambulances.
The eight riders will set off from the Ace Cafe London this morning, and will head to the IAM offices at Chiswick with IAM chief executive Simon Best, before travelling south west on the first leg of their tour, to Christchurch.
Over the week long tour, they will be visiting Christchurch, Bournemouth, Bassetts Pole, Newcastle, Glasgow, Belfast and finishing at Bike Fest in Shrewsbury.
On Friday 22 June, Belfast will see a world record attempt for the most number of makes and models of motorcycles in a single parade. Supporters of this event 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 riders will demonstrate this on their ride around the UK, while raising money for the Association of Air Ambulances. Tragically, riding does sometimes go wrong and the quick response service they provide is vital in saving lives.”
Donate to the Association of Air Ambulances.
