Ever Ridden a Chopper?

No, not a bike of the 'extended forks, ape-hanger 'bars and alternative lifestyle' type, but the whirly-bird variety.

The UK is served by a network of air ambulances, all - as far as I know - privately funded.  My local service is run by the Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust .

This year the trust is particularly interested in motorcyclists - but as fund-raisers rather than potential customers! :)

Amongst other events planned, the H Cafe in Dorchester on Thames will hold an Air Ambulance & Bikes day on the 25th Sept.: 'HELI - BIKES day'.

They're also offering speakers to come to your club nights, the opportunity of visits to their base (at RAF Benson near Wallingford) for groups, and even a fly-past if you are planning a major event.

I'll keep you updated as I hear more.
