It's a voluntary organisation who’s aim is to provide an annual outing, to a suitable venue for children with disabilities & special needs
The children are taken to the venue in motorcycle combinations, 3-wheeled cars & trikes, escorted by riders on solo motorcycles. The children are looked after by the same rider or couple for the day. Solo riders can also take care of a child at the venue if they want to.
Its always the 2nd Sunday in September from Birmingham. There is camping, catering, and a social night on the Saturday. A weekend of fun for all the family.
Bring an outfit, 3-wheeler or trike for the weekend, or turn up on the Sunday. If you ride a solo machine come along and help marshal the route. Jumbo regalia is always on sale or make a donation at the Jumbo stand.
