The BHS’s Ride Out UK Week (formerly known as Access Week) is taking place on 28 May – 5 June and they want you to get involved! Organise a pleasure ride for your club, join a prepared ride, or hold a social event.
The week celebrates and raises awareness of safe off-road access in your area, and applauds the fantastic efforts of the BHS’s UK-wide volunteer team, bridleway groups, local authorities and others to keep these off-road routes open for riders now and in future generations. With the money raised The Society can carry on defending extending and promoting your safe off-road routes through the BHS Paths for Communities Fund.
With over 2,000 reports of road incidents being reported to The British Horse Society in five years, it’s more imperative than ever to keep off-road routes open to riders. So get involved and saddle up & explore the scenic route and log how many miles you’ve done on the BHS Hoof O’meter.
Prizes will be going out to the for the individual and group who raises the most amount of money – so see what your club can do to fundraise.
