If this isn't an event worth going to then I'm not sure what is. Fiver a bike is an impressive amount of money for AfghanHeroes if there's a good turnout :thumbright:

Time:
10:30am - 2:00pm
Location:
Wootton Bassett
Description
Sunday 14th March 2010

The ride will be starting at Leigh Delamere Service Station J17 (eastbound) of the M4. Please start arriving from 10:30am.

Each rider will pay £5 and receive an Afghan Heroes wristband, which will be their entry pass to RAF Lyneham. The lead riders will be leaving at 12 noon promptly. The route will be along the M4 to J16 before heading along the A-Roads towards Wootton Bassett. We will be riding through at a slow speed before continuing along to RAF Lyneham. We are honored that they are opening their gates for us and refreshments will be available.

All those attending RAF Lyneham will require to pre register giving Name, Address, DOB and Bike Registration. This is to enable security clearance to be carried out by the RAF. REGISTRATION CLOSES MONDAY 15TH FEBRUARY 2010. Anyone who does not register WILL NOT be allowed onto RAF Lyneham.

We will be riding to RAF Lyneham where there will be a presentation to hand over the funds raised for the Afghan Heroes Charity, set up last September by a group of mothers who lost their sons in Afghanistan.

IF YOU KNOW OF ANY BIKERS WHO WISH TO ATTEND THE RIDE WHO HAVEN’T REGISTERED ON FACEBOOK CAN YOU ENSURE THAT THEY REGISTER ON THE SECURE SITE.

Look forward to seeing you there!

If I'm not working then I will attend this ride. I was totally against our involvement in this war and still think our troops should be withdrawn but politics aside I am keen to show support for these brave souls.

I will if I can. A fine event.

Could I ask folk to consider wearing a TLD hi-viz to the ride to drum up sponsorship and riders to boost the coffers of Help for Heroes?
