'RIDETHECOUNTY' is a charity event supporting the Air Ambulance Service and is the third year the event has been run. It began with four checkpoints around Oxfordshire in 2014 and has expanded since to cover up to six counties last year. Over £15,000 has been raised in the last three years and in an attempt to maintain that, the riders plan to ride from Witney down towards the south coast.
Come and see between 100-150 riders arriving from 1pm onwards.
If you wish to donate to the charity, collecting tins will be available on the day.

The Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum welcomes Colin Gwilliam and his Spyder Riders to the Museum.
Three bikes will be on display and the riders will be happy to answer any questions visitors have on these unusual bikes.
Anyone can ride a Spyder on a full car licence and there is no legal requirement to wear a helmet, however most riders do.
Due to the bike’s ‘Y’ trike configuration and stability there are quite a few disabled riders.
For general information on Spyder bikes visit:
