Riders are invited to join a convoy of hundreds on Sunday 12 August for a fundraising Ride In which starts at Triumph in Hinckley, Leicestershire before heading to the Brackley Festival of Motorcycling in Northamptonshire.

Those involved, on bikes of all shapes, sizes and manufacturers, will be able to enjoy the Triumph Visitor Experience (no factory tour), Triumph store and Triumph 1902 café from the start of sign-in at 8.30am to departure for Brackley at 10.30am.

The event last took place in 2016 when around 700 riders gathered at the Bruntingthorpe circuit in Leicestershire, performed a mass two-mile lap of the track and rode to the Brackley Festival. They raised £10,000 for the local Air Ambulance but this year’s organisers are hoping the figure will be surpassed.

“It is an amazing sight to see such a large cavalcade of bikes,” explained local Air Ambulance National Partnerships Manager Jo Payne. “We have had great support in the past from all areas of the motorcycle industry and I’m hoping we can raise record amounts this year.

Riders will assemble at Triumph HQ (Normandy Way, Hinckley, Leicestershire. LE10 3BZ) and tickets include entry to both the Ride In and the Brackley Festival along with designated parking close to all the action. Advanced ticket sales are £17.50 for a single rider, or £35.00 for rider and pillion on the day prices are £20 and £40 respectively.

Online bookings for the event will close at noon on Saturday 11 August although riders will still be able to sign up on the day from 8.30am. If you’re keen to take part, secure your place today!
