The Royal British Legion RIDERS Branch is one ofthe Legions National branches. It is open to anyone regardless of abode, nationality, branch of service, and of course, those that have not served. Our enthusiasm for motorcycles brought us together, but our desire to support those who have served is a common goal. Branch activities include taking part in rallies of all sizes, track days, bike shows and, of course, events that highlight the Royal British Legion and the work it does for our service community, both past and present, along with their dependents.Above all, we are bikers who enjoy the camaraderie and friendliness of the biker world".
