GWAAC’s Ride4Life is back!

Bristol will vibrate with the roar of Harley’s, Triumph’s and Yamaha’s as Great Western Air Ambulance Chairty’s Ride4Life event returns to the city.

Bikers will have the chance to join hundreds of others on a rideout through Bristol to support the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity. Whether you’re brand new to two wheels, a born-again biker, or you’ve been riding for years, the GWAAC’s Ride4Life is the perfect event for you.

The organised rideout takes place on Sunday July 9th, and aims to promote safe riding, as well as raising money to fund GWAAC’s lifesaving work. Starting and finishing at Clifton Rugby Club it takes in the sights of Bristol from two wheels. And that’s not all! The event will culminate with an afternoon of trade stands, live music and refreshments at the rugby club.

This is the second year that the charity have hosted this event, with the first event last year attracting around 300 riders. GWAAC’s Head of Fundraising and Marketing Emma Carter said:

“We are really excited about this year’s Ride4Life. Last year was our first event, and we listened to all the feedback and used it to build and improve the rideout. This year the route is longer, and the festival is bigger and better. It promises to be a fun day out, whether you are a biker, or just want to come along to the festival. I hope as many people as possible get behind this event, and help us to fund this life-saving service.”

You can register to take part in this exciting event for just £10 by visiting www.ride4gwaac.com. All the money raised from the event will go towards keeping the helicopter flying, meaning more lives are saved across Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset, Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, and parts of Wiltshire.
