TV comedian and motorcycle fanatic Ross Noble is revving himself up for a celebrity motorcycle ride out into central London to raise money for Riders for Health as part of London's biggest biking event, the 2012 Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show.
Red Dwarf's and BBC1's
drama Death in Paradise, Danny John Jules sporting his trademark pink motorbike will accompany Noble and they will set off from renowned biker venue Ace Cafe London in Stonebridge on Saturday 4th February at 9.00am and ride to ExCeL, London where the show is taking place between the 2nd and 5th of February.
Bikers from across the country are invited to join the celebrity ride out and show their support for Riders for Health, which manages and maintains vehicles for African health workers so they can deliver much-needed health care to the most isolated communities.
The route will take the motorcycle pack down the A406 east from the cafe around to the A1020, Royal Albert Way, leading to ExCeL at the heart of London Docklands.
The Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show, in association with The Telegraph
, is the capitals largest biking event and gives riders the chance to meet their biking heroes as well as seeing action-packed stunts and the latest 2012 bikes and accessories from all the major manufacturers ranging from Ducati Panigale to the Triumph Explorer.
The event also features the jaw-dropping Michelin Revolution Show, in which World trials icon Dougie Lampkin [see him in action here - Dougie Lampkin rides ExceL London
] and TT champion John McGuinness [see him in action here - McGuinness: The 'Road to Revoultion'
] will go head-to head over a specially constructed course that tests both skill and nerve.
In honour of the show's new 'Enduro' theme, Lampkin and McGuinness will be joined by multiple world Enduro champion David Knight, fan's favourite Chris Walker, BSB, WSB and GP ace Neil Hodgson and record breaking TT winner Ian Hutchinson who will compete in two teams to tackle breath-taking obstacles putting their nerves and skill to the test.
Noble, who is well known for his love of biking, has competed in a number of competitions including the Red Bull Romaniacs, the world's toughest enduro race, in Romania.
“The Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show is a highlight of the biking event calendar and it will be great to arrive at ExCeL in style, in a convoy with hundreds of other bikers,” Noble said. “Everyone taking part in the ride out will be supporting a worthy charity. Riders for Health help health workers in Africa stay mobile so they can reach even the most far-flung areas to deliver life-saving medical care.”
