This page is to register your intention to join the UNITED STATES (Texas) RIDE.
A 'patch donation' of $5.00 is asked to participate in the US ride. The registration process for the Texas ride on this website is for administrative purposes to let the ride organisers know who you are, how to get hold of you, an idea of approximate numbers joining the ride and where on the route you expect to join us. All payments and patch distribution is being processed locally by the US organizers and will be arranged independent of this website!
All net profit will go to the Number 1 British Flying Training School (#1 BFTS), Terrell TX. Seventyone years ago, in early 1941, prior to the US entering WWII, Churchill and Roosevelt met secretly off the coast of Newfoundland. They agreed Roosevelt would ask Congress to pass the Lend Lease Act allowing British Royal Air Force Cadets to be trained in the US by civilian instructors. The 1st British Flying Training School in the US was constructed in Terrell, TX. American instructors trained over 2,000 RAF Cadets in Terrell between 1941 and the end of WWII. The hospitality of local citizens united our countries in a bond of friendship and peace.
