BEN, the automotive industry charity is hosting its Motorcycle Rally from Saturday 22 to Tuesday 25 September 2012.

Entrants of this unique riding challenge will travel across the English Channel before continuing through the breath taking French countryside and reaching the final destination of Monaco in the South of France. In total riders will travel approximately 1,600 miles.

The entry fee is £475 which covers the accommodation for up to two people (sharing), ferry crossings, breakfasts and evening meals. BEN is asking participants to raise additional sponsorship but there is no minimum requirement; all that is asked is that entrants raise as much sponsorship as possible.

Kelly Neal, BEN's Events Manager said, "BEN are very excited about the up and coming Motorcycle Rally and with it being a new event this excitement is only heightened. We encourage all bike enthusiasts to take part. All monies raised go to BEN and will help provide vital care and support for thousands of colleagues and their dependents from within the automotive industry in times of need.
