M6toll proudly support the sixth annual Ride to the Wall

The event raises considerable funds for the National Memorial Arboretum, part of The Royal British Legion family of charities, which provides a permanent home to the Armed Forces Memorial. Many thousands of motorcyclists from around the country are expected to take part; setting off from seven different starting points and assembling all together at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

Since the first ride in 2008, the event has raised in excess of £200,000 for the National Memorial Arboretum. Individuals, groups and chapters from particular organisations, such as regional Harley Owners Groups, The Royal British Legion Riders Branch and a large number of other owners groups and motorcycle clubs are among those taking part.

Tom Fanning, Midland Expressway Limited's CEO says "As a biker myself, I am delighted to support the RTTW again this year by way of providing free passage for all fellow bikers exiting at T4 on the M6toll. Saturday is forecast to be a perfect warm day and I sure that this years' event will raise much deserved funds for the National Memorial Arboretum which is a unique tribute to all those who have given their lives in the service of their country. I would urge all other M6toll road users to 'Think Bike' and check their mirrors before changing lanes due to the large number of motorcyclists expected on the day… ride safe all..."

Riders will be granted free passage on their inbound journey only when exiting the M6toll at T4 (Weeford). Signage will be in place directing riders at the toll plazas.
