An air ambulance charity is again calling on motorcycling supporters to get on their bikes and say “I did it my way’’ to help keep the life-saving charity flying.

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural event, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT), is asking bikers to tackle a route of at least sixty miles in May and September, the months when it would normally be welcoming them in person to its much-loved motorcycle events.

EHAAT normally holds two motorcycle runs – in May to North Weald and in September to Harwich – but these have both again been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kerry Russell, EHAAT’s head of events, said: “A big thanks to everyone who has supported us previously. Our bike runs are enormously popular with riders, and we love hosting them, so we know many people will share our disappointment that we can’t hold them this year. However, we know that our biking friends loved the first “I Did It My Way” last year and we have made some enhancements to help ensure the event raises as much as possible to support our life-saving work”.

In return for a £10 registration fee, riders will receive an exclusive sticker to display on their bike with pride and show other riders they are supporting EHAAT.

New for 2021 a biking supporter has created four beautiful routes for participants to enjoy and these are available in return for a small fee. Similar to last year there is also a specially-designed t-shirt available to purchase from the website. Bikers will also be able to upload their photos to the Wall of Fame.
