Bike Tours for the Wounded C.I.C is a not for profit Community Interest Company that supports all services and ranks who have served our country that are now wounded, injured or sick (WIS).
Each year through fundraising we take a number of service personnel on various motorcycle tours in America on the back of Harley Davidsons, including the best parts of Route 66. To date we have taken over 200 personnel on tour.
To fully fund each place costs £1,795 and in order to achieve this we require continued support from the public at our fundraising events.
These tours are proving to be an important part of their rehabilitation programs. They offer an opportunity to share experiences with others in similar situations, to form new friendships, find alternative support networks and to take time to reflect. Most of all they give each individual something to look forward to and focus on.
The noticeable difference in many of the service personnel we have supported has been remarkable and it is seeing this that drives our desire to continue what we do.
This is such a fantastic opportunity to tick something off your bucket list whilst giving something very special back to one of our WIS. Over the past couple of years we have introduced several new tours within the UK and Europe to accommodate a wider range of riders and WIS, including our Normandy D-Day tour and The Roadrunner Challenge.
In order to continue facilitating these tours we are always looking for experienced riders with the funds and desire to carry one of our WIS as pillion or ride solo on one of our unique tours. None of this would be possible without the support of Blue Cucumber Tours Limited our chosen tour operator, who facilitate all of our tours each year.
Whether you are a WIS yourself or you are a rider looking to book your next tour, come along to our stand and see how you can get involved today, whilst meeting some of the truly inspirational guys and girls we have supported to date.
