HUNDREDS of motorcyclists are expected to gather at Oxfordshire’s Cherwell Valley Services to support the Armed Services.
The M40 service station, at Ardley, near Bicester, is one of eight starting places for the fifth annual Ride to the Wall motorcycle event on Saturday, October 6. Thousands of riders from across the country will travel to the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire to show their support for troops and pay their respects for those who have fallen.
RTTW founder Martin Dickinson said places were still available for bikers to take part.
He said: “This year’s event promises to be the biggest and best yet and a truly wonderful experience for all participating motorcyclists.”
