The event takes place on the Sunday of the last bank holiday weekend in May annually. It is open to bikes, trikes, scooters and mopeds; all are very welcome. We ask that back patch clubs are by prior arrangement.
To take part, all we ask for is a minimum £5 donation, allof which goes to the charity.
This year's ride leaves St Catherines breakwater at 11:00 precisely on Sunday 26th May 2019. Riders tend to turn up several hours before and enjoy the spectacle and camaraderie of hundreds of fellow bikers together.
With the Ride
The ride starts at St Catherines break water and will follow the east coast of Jersey as far as Mount Bingham, where we stop to reform at La Collette trading estate. We proceed along the avenue as far as St Aubins. From St Aubins along St Brelades Bay to Red Houses, we then travel clockwise around the Corbiere loop. From there, we travel along the Five Mile road stopping at the Watersplash. This route is specifically designed to showcase Jersey at it's beautiful best.
This charity event is dependant on the good will of the people of Jersey. In order for the ride to proceed safely and for the enjoyment of all participants and spectators, we would ask the following:
No excessive revving of engines.
No wheelies or other dangerous riding.
Follow road signs and directions at all times, including speed limits.
Be aware of pedestrian crossings and give way as required.
We must ensure that we stop at red traffic lights. The Honary Police will change them to green if safe to do do. If they are red it may indicate that an emergency vehicle needs to come through the junction.
At all times ride safely and with respect so that we can continue to enjoy the support of the various Island authorities.
