THE 2020 LEE RIGBY MEMORIAL RIDE WAS UNABLE TO BE HELD ON THE 22ND MAY
DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS. DETAILS WILL BE POSTED SOON WHEN THE ALTERNATIVE RIDE DATE IS KNOWN
A few words from Julia Stevenson, the founder of the Lee Rigby Memorial Ride.
On behalf of the Ride of Respect team I would like to say thank you to each and everyone who supports this ride, all the bikers who ride from near or far, all those who support us on the route, all those who helped make the day possible. Many thanks also to the Unity Support Riders, qualified riders who safely guided our riders, the Marshalls at RV points.
Thanks to Veterans In Action who sell our merchandise online before the ride, Ali Scott for the admin and purchasing of the merchandise and those that help sell it all on the day, sales of which go towards buying future stock for all the rides each year. It also pays for such things as flyers, event items etc, with all the left over monies being used by the Ride of Respect Organisation to help veterans when the charities can't help them.
Last year we bought 4 cycles from Halfords and gave them to Veterans living at The Simon Western House to help them on their journey getting back into civvy street. All suffer with PTSD.
Thank you all for your continued support in this ride and well done to you all of you.
Thursday May 22nd 2014 was the first of an annual ride to Woolwich for the Bikers to show their Respect to Lee, his family and his regiment.
