Motorcycle Run & North Weald Family Fun Day

Motorcycle Run

Registration

NEW ROUTE for 2018: Learner Riders welcome

Pre-registeration is now CLOSED for this year’s Motorcycle Run from Welwyn – North Weald however you can still pay on the day! Don’t miss the 60 mile ride in aid of your local life-saving Charity!

Ticket cost:
£10 – Rider standard ticket 

£15 – Rider + Pillion standard ticket

Family fun day entry is FREE but we do ask for a £5 donation to help us host a fun filled day of entertainment as well as to keep your local Air Ambulance operational. We can’t fly without you.

Sponsorship

Get sponsored by friends and family to help raise those all important, life-saving funds. Each mission costs on average £2,500, we need YOU. If 1,000 riders raised £30-£50 in sponsorship money we would raise enough to fund 12 missions.

How can you raise life-saving funds?

We understand that it can be hard to find the time to raise that all-important sponsorship, so this year, we have given our supporters the option to donate £30 at the time of their ticket purchase instead. Just select this option when adding your ticket to the basket, it could make all the difference.

For those of you that would like to take on the challenge and raise your own sponsorship for your local Air Ambulance just purchase a standard ticket and raise sponsorship by setting up your JustGiving page or downloading a sponsorship form.

Family Fun Day

As well as welcoming in the hundreds of bikers that are on their way from Welwyn Garden City you can also expect a range of fun filled activities and entertainment. Formerly known as the Essex Motorcycle Show, this show has been kitting out bikers for years! Take a look at what we have in store for you.

Trade stands

We have a variety of trade stands on the day. Don’t miss the opportunity to browse at your leisure or even make a purchase of your own!

Make sure you take a trip to the Car Limits stand for a chance to experience a hover craft and supercar passenger rides! Pre-book your slots on their website using promo code AIRAMB to receive a discount of 10%.  Car Limits will be making a donation to the Charity from the proceeds made on the day going to EHAAT.

Entertainment

We are pleased to announce ART rider training school will once again be at the event encouraging newcomers to the hobby to ride safe!

Bands

Once again there will be live bands to keep you entertained with everything from ska to rockabilly! Join us at the Fun Day to see Missing Cat, The Chevrons and Radio Video Band perform LIVE.

The Chevrons

The Chevrons are a four piece soul blues band who play awesome soul tracks that you didn’t know you knew! The brand originally formed in 2014, with Kev singing and on guitar, Sean on drums and Graham on bass. Kev was probably born holding a guitar and has never stopped playing. Sean and Graham used to be in bands in their previous lives BC (before child), having both a gap of 15 years before playing with The Chevrons. Dawn joined on the saxophone in January 2015 after a lot of haranguing by Kev! Expect songs from James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix, Sam & Dave, Ike and Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, Ray Charles, Little Richard, Rolling Stones (…the list goes on but we don’t want to make your head explode) played loud, proud and the way they should be.

Missing Cat

Mostly grey in colour, mature in age, but still able to stay up all night playing a selection of rock, pop, funk, soul and good old rock & roll are the returning band, Missing Cat. Based in and around Hertfordshire, Missing Cat have performed at The Horns, Watford; The Square, Harlow, Balstock Music Festival and headlined at Buntsfest.

Radio Video Band

A rock covers act from Hertfordshire that will bring you the best day of your life. Playing classic hits from the 50’s to the present day you will be truly rocked off your feet

On the Edge 

The stunt group are ready and waiting to perform at this year’s Family Fun Day. The team consists of the world’s best stunt riders and mobile stunt unit, which is the focal point of the show. We must stress that this is not to be tried at home!

Food and Refreshments

There will be a variety of food and refreshments stands available on the day including hog roast, fish & chip and burgers.

Safety Zone

Last year we were dispatched to 487 Road Traffic Collisions. It is very important to us to promote the importance of safe riding within the biker community to help minimise the number of accidents that occur on the roads. Come and say hello at our Safety Zone and see for yourself the danger of driving too close to a lorry and sit in the driving seat to see for yourself, kindly provided by our sponsor Woodland Group.

Please help us encourage our message of safe riding and share #RideSafe across social media.

Think safe, ride safe, home safe.
