A GROUP of motorbikers will be completing a 100-mile ride to commemorate the Great War.

The Royal British Legion Riders’ Branch will be setting off from Alfreton on Sunday, July 6, and arrive at Ashbourne’s market place at around noon.

The group will be laying a commemorative poppy wreath or cross at each of the town they visit.

There will be a variety of motorbikes, trikes and scooters making the journey,

The full route is Alfreton - Matlock - Belper - Ripley - Heanor - Derby - Ashbourne - Buxton - Castleton - Hope - Grindleford - Chesterfield - Clay Cross - and ending at the Miners’ Welfare in Shirland.

The Shirland brass band will be at the finish point to welcome the bikers home, and to play the Last Post following two-minute’s silence. There will also be live music and a disco for all to enjoy in the evening.
