Bikers 4 Macmillan are a fundraising group raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support through the common ground of an interest in Motorcycling. Throughout the year we organise trips, rides and visits. Some are fundraising and some are not, after all, we’re motorcyclists that raise funds not fundraisers who ride bikes.

This is the 5th Year Of The Annual Overnight Ride from Holyhead to Skegness and it takes place overnight on June 22nd /23rd 2013.

The ride departs from Southstack Car park (LL65 1YH), Holyhead at 9.30pm and travels across country (no Motorways) and aims to arrive at Skegness by 4.15am just as the sun rises.

Last years tour was a great success with 113 riders completing the 256 miles and raising over £20,000! Due to last years increased popularity we have had to cap this years numbers to 200 and there are only around 35 places remaining with 2 months to go!

The ride/route is fully marshalled and there are plenty of fuel/refreshment stops along the way as well as the odd bacon butty thrown in!

Many riders make their way to Holyhead the night before and stay over in the Valley area before meeting up at the Southstack Kitchen:

where there are drinks and snacks available.

Departing at roughly 9pm we will arrive around 4:15am at the Storehouse Skegness where floor space can be provided for a small fee for you to get your head down for a few hours (bring a sleeping bag, pillow etc) otherwise you can contact local hotels that may be able to put you up for a few hours as well although most riders departed after regaining some feeling in their legs, a bacon sandwich, tea and a photo!

Participants are asked to pre-register (Rider only £10, Rider and Pillion £15) through our website: 


All funds raised go to Macmillan Cancer Support.
