Ride To The Wall : National Memorial Arboretum

The Motorcycle World brought together both young and old in remembering the 16000+ names that are engraved on the walls of the Armed Forces memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum.
This annual ride brings motorcyclists from near & far together to attend a memorial service on the steps of the Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum on the first Saturday in October, in order to remember those who can no longer ride by our side. The event has also highlighted the immense generosity and kindness of the wider motorcycling community, and has gone a long way to bringing together motorcyclists and members of the wider community who share similar values, and as part of this experience has broken down barriers. It has also increase awareness of the National Memorial Arboretum to a larger audience, and in doing so has allowed those that may not have already done so, the opportunity to remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Those who gave their lives are remembered
