Ride To The Wall 2023
Saturday 7 OctoberThis is your chance to join thousands of other motorcyclists as an act of remembrance at the National Memorial Arboretum. The NMA is a moving garden of remembrance for all people of the UK and includes those such as nurses, firemen, postmen, stillborn children, 9/11 victims, road crash victims as well as soldiers, sailors and airmen who died in service since the 2nd World War; for more info take a look at www.thenma.org.uk.

You may also add a name of your choice to the scroll of remembrance.

The RTTW Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon the roads behind you.
May you be kept safe through rolling hills, twisting turns, from oil, gravel and dim-witted drivers and, until we meet again, may the blessing of the triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Be upon You, and those whom you love
Now and always
