LEST WE FORGET
This event has been organised by members of the Royal British Legion (Riders Branch), a UK charity that safeguards the welfare, interests and memory of those who are serving or who have served in the Armed Forces. We are recognised as custodians of Remembrance. This ride is open to all bikers, you do not have to be a member of the Royal British Legion Riders to take part although we do encourage you to learn about who we are and what we do by taking a look at our parent sites: Royal British Legion Riders Branch and the Royal British Legion. We ask that all riders Ride with Pride, Ride with Respect and Ride to Remember.
In association with the RBLR, this event has been coordinated in the United States by members of the American Legion Riders (ALR) and recently formed Allied Riders. The American Legion is a congressionally chartered mutual-aid veterans organization of the United States armed forces founded to benefit those veterans who served during a wartime period as defined by the United States Congress. The American Legion was founded in 1919 by veterans returning from Europe after World War I, and was later chartered under Title 36 of the United States Code. For further information about the American Legion Riders, please visit the ALR Website. The Allied Riders were formed when it was discovered that only certain veterans can join the American Legion and Veterans of Foregin Wars, therefore the Allied Riders Group was established to "plug the gap" and let anyone who supports our military or veterans be a member.
Plus, in association with the RBLR, this event has been coordinated in Canada by members of the Canadian Veteran Freedom Riders (CVFR). The purpose of the CVFR is to provide a Riding Club (RC) which welcomes all Veterans and Veteran Supporters who wish to share their enthusiasm for motorcycling and for the camaraderie of military life. The mission of The CVFR in collaboration with other bodies, is to support the well being of the current and former members of the Canadian Forces by promoting and maintaining the heritage, traditions, and culture of the Canadian Forces and, at the same time, portraying a positive image of motorcycle riding.
