Keen motorcyclists are invited to come along and take part in the annual Dorset Ride Out this September, hosted by motorcycle injury prevention charity DocBike.

This year, participants can choose between the 30-mile route starting at The Churchill Arms in Alderholt, or the 40-mile route from West Bay Esplanade in Bridport.

Riders on both routes will finish at Henstridge Airfield, where together they can enjoy music, refreshments, stalls, and a grand raffle with prizes donated by local Dorset businesses.

The Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance crew will also be on hand offering participants the chance to have a look around their helicopter.

“We’re dedicated to being there for anyone who needs emergency critical care, but we’re just as passionate about helping bikers to avoid being in a crash by giving them tips and tricks to avoid being knocked off of their bikes.

“I’d like to say a particular thanks to Geoff, the airfield owner at Henstridge, for allowing us to use his venue to ride out to, and also Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance for their ongoing support of everything that we’re doing.”

Registration for the event, which takes place on Sunday 24 September, is now open.

Willing participants are encouraged to help raise funds by either making a donation, securing a minimum of £25 through sponsorships, or purchasing extra raffle tickets.
