Bikers fundraiser

Over 3,500 motorcyclists rode the 23 miles from Shrewsbury to RAF Cosford in the Bike4Life Ride Out, raising £73,800 for the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity in the process. The Ride Out was led by world Superbike champion Carl Fogarty, motorcycle and truck racing legend Steve Parrish, adventure motorcyclist and author Nick Sanders, and Boyzone star and professional drift driver Shane Lynch. It was followed by a festival supported by the Safer Roads Partnership at Cosford, which was attended by over 10,000. Bikers and visitors were entertained by live bands including headliners The Wholls as well as a freestyle motocross display from Jamie Squibb of Nitro Circus.
Jason Levy of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and chair of the Bike4Life organising committee, said, “Over 35% of the incidents our three air ambulances attend are road traffic collisions, and sadly a great number of these involve motorcyclists in urgent need of medical attention, so the money raised will help to ensure we can continue to provide lifesaving care when it’s most needed.”
