Dambusters2013 is a charity motorcycle ride to commemorate the famous Dambusters Raid on 16th/17th May 1943 when 617 Sqdn breached the Ruhr Dams using the bouncing bomb designed by Barnes Wallis.
Combining the success of the ‘Dambusters2012’ charity ride and the hugely supported ‘Easter Egg’ motorcycle charity runs from across the UK to deliver a unique and exciting motorcycling event for all involved
Significant numbers of bikers all riding to the Mohne Dam in time to lay wreathes on the waters of the Mohnesee at 00.19hrs, the time the dam was breached in 1943. Invitations will be extended to German bikers too - this is a commemoration of the loss of life and destruction for all concerned
A formally approved event for our primary charity ‘Help for Heroes’ who provide practical direct support for our current wounded. 80% of money raised will go to help for Heroes. Secondary charity supported is Motorcycle Outreach. 20% of money raised will go to MoR.
