    A great idea and should be well attended on Remembrance Sunday , November 10th.
    I'll be meeting some peeps at Clacket lane services and riding towards Cobham services.
    I sugest meeting at 1066 Cafe, on A21, Robertsbridge and riding up A21.
    Dunno what time yet, but I will update info when I get it.

    Meet Points and Times - Asking to wear a red jumper or the like over your leathers - believe they are talking to Sky News who have said they may have 2 helicopters up to cover as well as advise when the 'ring' is complete.


    JUNCTION 3 – (M20) – Car parks on London Road just before entrance to M25
    BETWEEN JUNCTIONS 5 & 6 – Clackett Lane Services
    BETWEEN JUNCTION 9 & 10 – Cobham Services
    JUNCTION 12 – (M3) – Fleet Services on the M3
    JUNCTION 15 – (M4) – Reading Services on M4
    JUNCTION 18 – (A404) – Cherries Road, A404 – Just before M25
    JUNCTION 21 – (M1) – Toddington Services on M1
    JUNCTION 23 – South Mimms Services
    JUNCTION 27 – (M11) – Birchanger Green Services on M11
    JUNCTION 30/31 – Thurrock Services

    Ken Sutherland - from Unity Support Riders (USR's)
    Ride Guide

    The 4 rally points Cobham, South Mimms, Thurrock and Clackets will all leave at slightly different times, because of the distance between Cobham and South Mimms this ride will start to leave at approx. 11.45, the 3 other points, South Mimms, Thurrock and Clackets will start to leave at approx. 12.00, the idea is to filter on bikers from the rally points at controlled intervals so we fill up one lane of the M25 for 12.30. Most riders are doing at least ¼ of the M25 but its up to those riding how far they want to go, some of us are destined to do at least 1 loop that day
    Other riders joining the M25 from other locations are asked to merge in with the ride in their respective location.
    We plan to ride single file (but staggered for safety) with approx 3 bikes apart (this may be tweaked on the day)
    Please note these plans are very fluid as we firm up much of the ride and things may change, we will keep you informed

    Unfortunately I will not be able to make this due to the fact that I will be doing a few laps of Bexhill...running the poppy half marathon to be precise :)

    THE OFFICIAL MEETING POINTS FOR RIDERS TO GET ON THE M25
    ************************************************

    These are the ‘Official’ meeting points for times to be at the Meeting points and the times that the bikers will be leaving the meeting points to get onto the M25.

    There will be a rep at each of them who will organise the bikers from their meeting point, but we do ask ALL participants in this event to read the ‘USR RIDER INFORMATION’ before the event. The aim is to get all the bikers safely from each meeting point onto the M25 so that by 1230 hours all riders will be riding round the M25, and in the process the front riders from one junction meeting with the last riders of the previous junction.

    ALL TIMINGS ARE APPROXIMATE AND MAY BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO LOCAL CIRCUMSTANCES E.G. WEATHER, QUANTITY OF RIDERS ETC.....SO PLEASE BE AT YOUR MEETING POINT ON TIME!

    If there are any other riders who wish to ride onto the M25 from any other junction than listed above, then that is fine, but you are responsible for yourselves, you just need to be on the M25 between 1215 and 1230. Just join the motorway and find a spot inbetween riders. If you do not see any riders then keep riding to the next junction where hopefully you will meet up with some.

    Reps will identify themselves at each of the meeting points, some are not on facebook so cannot be contacted directly, but if there are any questions please comment below.....but please as much as possible read all the information given on the Facebook Page, the event and the Website.

    I am assuming that the aim is for everyone to be going clockwise (or is that a dumb question)? If so then I reckon Thurrock heading towards Clacket Lane will be the most convenient for coming from East Sussex area?

    yup...is a clockwise ride, question has been asked before....many times...it was clarified on the fb page...problem is that they put it up across many media services that some important info disappears :) ... so at the end of the day...a very valid question :)
