This Saturday sees the team behind the Ride B4 You Can Walk charity ride set off on their 13 day motorcycle trip around the UK.
The riders will be raising money for their charity of choice, the Essex Air Ambulance Trust through their Just Giving page as well as on the day. They will be meeting at 10am on Finchingfield Village Green, Essex before heading north towards to A14 at 12pm sharp with other bikers welcome to join them on the initial ride out.
The team will all be riding on the latest sport touring tyre from Continental, the ContiRoadAttack 2 EVO which delivers even more mileage and increased wet grip and recently came top of a dry road test which compared seven leading tyres from top manufacturers in the German magazine Motorrad. Charity rider Martin Potts has already had them fitted to his Suzuki GSXR 750 and commented“They are absolutely brilliant tyres! So impressed”.
The trip will see them ride from Essex to Northumberland on the first day before they continue further north into Scotland eventually hitting John O Groats. They then work their way back down to Inverness and traverse the highland roads to Fort William before moving south into England. After a week of solid riding the team then get to put their feet up for a couple of days in Criccieth in North Wales before carrying in down to Lands End and finally heading east as they push for home. You can see the entire official route via the Ride B4 You Can Walk website.
Best of luck to all six riders involved, along with support driver Josh Tyrell who joins the team as they hit Carlisle for start of Phase 2 of their 2300 mile journey.
