About the annual cycle ride
Ride to the Menin Gate for RBLI in 2022! We’ll be starting at Aylesford in Kent to do 2 days of riding, finishing at the Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres.
This is a fully supported charity bike ride and the entry fee of £530 (which includes the registration fee) covers your accommodation for two nights, lunches and refreshments en route and a celebration dinner on the final night. You will be looked after by our professional ride captains, support vehicles, motorcycle outriders, medics and mechanics who will all ensure you have a memorable time and an emotional experience with great camaraderie, food and pit stops. Your bike will be returned to Aylesford to await your arrival by coach via Eurotunnel.
From your arrival on Friday morning until you return on Sunday evening, we will make your experience effortless ensuring you have the experience of a lifetime.
