Grim Riders Battlefields Ride 2010


The aim of this ride is for you to visit some of the 15 Battlefields of Britain. The battlefields may be visited at any time of the year and in any order. You do not need to visit more than one on any particular day or trip. You need to take a photograph in front of any monument, sign or building which is clearly linked to the battlefield site.
