Royal Hospital Chelsea Ride Out
Growing on our success of the previous two years this will be the third year we have had an invitation to join the Chelsea Pensioners at their home the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
Limited to 100 Bikes do not miss this very special day!
Riding from your chosen start location guided by your run leader, we ride and meet the other groups at Heston Services on the M4. A quick rest and briefing from the blood bikers who will then marshal you and the other 100+ bikes at 0930hrs the 11 miles into the Royal Hospital Chelsea to be greeted by the Pensioners.
Arriving at the hospital a hot dog and a welcome brew will be provided by the Bike Tours for the Wounded support team this is part of your registration fee. This is the time to meet the pensioners and have plenty of photos taken.
A morning parade for the more able in-pensioners on the main square is the norm for a Sunday morning in the Summer months and in 2017 the veterans in the group were invited to join them on the this parade trying to remember the drill movements? We were also reminded that although the hospital has not got a guardroom with a J*il, there is a cookhouse for a bit of ‘’Spud Bashing’’ if your drill is not up to standard.
The morning service (not compulsory) follows at 1100hrs in the Hospital Chapel. This is a short service led by the Chaplin and the choir and it is worth joining the pensioners and the local congregation.
After the service you can explore the grounds where there will be plenty of time for photo opportunities and visit the café to sample their sandwiches and cakes before making your own way home.
Cost for the day which includes a hot dog and a drink on arrival at the RHC
