Bike Tours for the Wounded C.I.C are proud to support Wounded, Injured and Sick Veterans
"Ride, Refocus and Decide"
Bike Tours for the Wounded C.I.C (BT4TW) is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company that provides direct and indirect support to both Serving Members and Veterans of the UK’s armed forces.
At BT4TW we support all services and all ranks of those who have served our country. Whether they are Wounded, Injured or Sick (Beneficiaries) where their injury, physical or mental condition is or was considered to be career or life limiting, including veterans.
Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSS) can have a tremendous impact on the lives of those who are affected by the condition. We support and continue to support many serviceman and servicewomen with PTSS.
To date, we have taken more than 300 servicemen, servicewomen and veterans on our motorcycle challenges with remarkable results. The words "Life changing" are commonly used in the feedback we receive post tour.
We provide this support by offering funded places to those in need on Motorcycle challenges. These challenges take place in the United States of America on either the Best of Route 66 or Wild West challenges or on the D-Day beaches in Normandy, France. In addition, we also offer off-road motorcycle skills and maintenance training from our office in Burton upon Trent.
If you think you are in a position to support Bike tours for the Wounded we would love to hear from you!

Seven ways to give support
If you care about our wounded, injured and sick veterans, please give what you can to help us make a difference.
Helping our Veterans to a brighter future!
Our motto is "Ride, Refocus and Decide". These BT4TW challenges have had life changing positive effects on many of the veterans we have supported over the years and with your help we can continue to support many more veterans at their time of need! If you feel that you could help, we would love to hear from you.
The ride allows a veteran to sit on the back of a motorcycle and think about nothing other than the changes in scenery. It also brings veterans with similar issues together.
Having time to reflect is really important for any individual. This challenge allows the veterans to do just that whilst at the same time mixing with successful individuals (their riders) who in the past have become mentors and new friends
Quite often our experience has shown that some veterans get caught in a trap thinking that current situation is permanent. What this challenge does is help them unlock a brighter future.
