Great Western Air Ambulance Charity’s (GWAAC's) Ride Out and Festival, Ride4GWAAC, is back with a new scenic route across Bristol and surrounding areas.
The Ride Out is taking place on Sunday 15th July. Starting at St Mary’s Old Boys Rugby Club in Bradley Stoke. The new route takes in many of the sites around Bristol, including the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge.
GWAAC is a charity that provides the Critical Care and air ambulance service for 2.1 million people across the counties of Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, North Somerset and surrounding areas. They are also celebrating 10 years of flying this year.
The GWAAC Critical Care team consists of highly trained and experienced Pilots, Specialist Paramedics in Critical Care and Critical Care Doctors. From emergency blood transfusions to roadside amputations or treating cardiac arrests, their crew specialise in Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine and Trauma Medicine. In 2017 the Critical Care Team attended 1,824 jobs.
As a charity they need to raise over £3 million each year to stay operational, but receive no day to day funding from the Government or National Lottery – by taking part in Ride4GWAAC you'll be playing a key role in helping them raise those essential funds.
Ride4GWAAC is one of the biggest motorbike Ride Out's in the area, and last year over 350 motorbike riders and their pillions took part. This year is set to be even bigger and better than ever! Tickets are available now for riders here.
The Ride Out takes place in the morning, and is followed by a festival which is free to attend for all the family! Expect live music, great food and plenty of entertainment throughout the day.
