Grim Riders MCC Charity Ride 2010

. Tuesday, December 15, 2009

Grim who runs the Grim Riders MCC has posted few a subtle hints regarding next year’s charity motorcycle ride, it’s going to be called the Battlefields Ride 2010 and as with the previous year’s charity motorcycle ride it will involve visiting a number of specific places around of Britain within the year.

While Grim has still to announce the names or number of Battlefields that will make up the Battlefields Ride 2010 you can be sure that they will cover most of Britain and prove to be interesting, thought provoking and challenging.

2009 was the 1st year of Grim Riders MCC's charity motorcycle rides and consisted of visiting as many of the 15 British National Parks within the year and getting a photograph of your bike and your rally number at each location, the more parks you visited, the more points you got were awarded and at the end of the year your points are added up and you receive either a Bronze, Silver or Gold award. Currently the total raised for the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance by the 2009 British National Parks Challenge is £2395!

Congratulations to Rig, Bob and Bonzo who visited all 15 British National Parks and have been earned a Gold award and congratulations to Chinny who visited 10 National Parks and earned himself a Silver award.

Unfortunately Grim Riders MCC don't offer awards for visiting any of the National Parks more than once as both Bob and Bonzo visited quite a few of the National Parks twice including the ones in Scotland!

Grim Riders MCC was setup with 2 primary goals, to give you a reason to get out on your motorcycle and at the same time support a really worthwhile charity – the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

If you want an excuse to get out on your bike next year and feel that you’re doing something to help a worthwhile cause, head over to the Grim Riders MCC website and sign up for next year’s challenge, it's going to be great fun!
