The Grim Riders MCC charity ride for 2013 involves visiting landmarks from two different rides, the Motorcycle Museums Ride and the Motorcycle Legends Ride. and includes a variety of locations in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, as well as several in Belgium, France, Germany and the Czech Republic.

All money raised goes directly to the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, the largest air ambulance service in the country who do incredible work to save lives and limbs – after horse riders, motorcyclists are the group most likely to be in need of their service which is not government or lottery funded.

If you’re interested in helping raise money for charity and want a good excuse to get out on your bike, head over to the Grim Riders MCC website.
