BOOKING is now available for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s much-anticipated Bike4Life Ride Out and Festival.

Online bookings can now be made for the annual biker event, run by the Lye-based charity, which this year will take place on Sunday, April 28.

The event sees 3,500 bikes travel a 23-mile route from Meole Brace in Shrewsbury to RAF Cosford in Shropshire, cheered on from the bridges of the M54 by hundreds of supporters.

Costing £10 for a rider and £5 for a pillion, bikers can secure their place in the Ride Out alongside VIP bikers, whose names will be announced over the coming months.

Last year’s event saw another 12,000 bikers attend the festival at RAF Cosford, raising £87,770 for the charity, and enjoying entertainment from live bands and freestyle motocross rider Jamie Squibb.

Jo Bailey, events manager for MAAC, said: “The biker community are fantastic supporters of the charity, which is clear from the money raised last year, funding 35 lifesaving air ambulance missions.

“Sadly, Midlands Air Ambulance Charity airlifts a biker every four days on average, so this event is not only a way for us to raise funds, but also raises awareness of biker safety.”
