Ride of Respect 2022


When we completed last year’s Falklands Ride of Respect we did say that we did not intend doing another one in the UK because we had hoped to go to the Falklands in February 2022 to ride to the last graves there, and because 2022 is going to be a busy year for Falklands veterans.  However, Covid has put a stop to our plans of visiting the Falklands so we have quickly planned on one last ride in the UK in this 40th anniversary year !  This will be held in the first two weeks of May.  The programme is at the bottom of this email.  Please share widely.

A request:  Clearly, time is tight and we have far less time for fundraising than we would normally.  However, we are calling on you – our loyal friends and supporters – to help get the message out there by asking for donations to the South Atlantic Medal Association and to help us actually mount the ride, to our Ride Admin Fund as well.  Anything unused in this fund will be donated to SAMA in any case.

Donations to SAMA are welcome and can be made on our Just Giving page or directly to the team at each location on the ride: 


The Riders cover their own costs on the ride ie fuel, accommodation, food etc.  To sponsor the ride team administrative costs please use the following account:

Please remember that the aim of the Ride of Respect is four-fold:

Remembrance – to demonstrate that our fallen are not forgotten.

Respect – for their families, the pain of the loss of a son, husband, or brother continues.

Awareness – to let people know where our fallen lie so that they may also give due respect.

Support – fundraising for SAMA82 whose continued support gives comfort to veterans and families.

Thank you for YOUR support
