About the event

This is a members only event

The Black Mountains Chapter are arranging an event to link in with the 80th anniversary of the Normandy landings and have extended an invitation to all UK Chapters to support. GWC will be attending this event as an official chapter event, full details can be found on this link

This is an official chapter event and , as of 2nd March , we will be joining  over 220 bikes and we were the 17th chapter to register attendance. We have already arranged to meet up with Bridgewater and the plan will be to join the chapters from Wales as they travel along the M4.  We will be aiming to arrive at the new start point, Blenheim Palace, approx 11:30,   before heading across to Dalton barracks.

There are now multiple meet ups across the country with larger multi chapter group arriving together so exact timing are atill to be confirmed.

Clothing / Pins / Patches

Pins and Patches are being manufactured as we speak and should be available soon, will share the links once we get close to receiving them in Swansea.

Probable costs going to be £10 each plus a bit of P&P – and again all profits will go to SWG.

T shirts and Hoodies

Again, available Online – with our unique designs ( hope u like ‘’the play on words’’ ) from Standing With Giants direct. No limits on quantities and available with a 7 / 10-day delivery time. They will be here next week – so keep looking !

The event breaks down to 3 elements

1. Ride 1 . GWC to join other chapters to ride up to Abingdon and meet at the main assembly point

2. Ride 2 . Mass ride to Portsmouth escorting the Lorry/Lorries carrying the Art installation .  

3, Option to go over to Caen.  It should be noted that around the anniversary dates accomadation can be difficult to find and if you wish to cross to Caen that you book your accomadation ASAP. 

We will be attending the first 2 elements of the event before riding back home.
