THIS weekend, thousands of motorbikers on a variety of bikes, trikes and scooters will thunder across the Severn Bridge, raising money for annual charity event Hoggin The Bridge.

The voluntary team behind the event are working hard to make sure the event is bigger and better than previous years.

“With a three-day event including a comedy evening, live music, the ride and a free FMX stunt show, we are confident that this year will be its most enjoyable yet,” Aaron Reeks, from Hoggin The Bridge and Caldicot Town Team, said.


“The team has worked hard to reduce the costs of hosting the event, meaning more money can go to the charities.”

This year the main chosen charity is Wales Air Ambulance, but other charitable groups will also benefit from a share of the money raised over the weekend.

Tickets are currently available online to purchase for the whole weekend or any part of the event, including a discounted rate for a weekend pass.

Steve Lewis, a member of the Hoggin The Bridge team, said he was thrilled to be able to run a bike show at this year’s event.

He said: “Some of the bikes that take part in the ride are phenomenal and deserve a chance to win a unique trophy, designed by one of our traders. We have five categories and can be entered for just £2 online.”

The Hoggin The Bridge team is also making it easier than ever for local to participate, with a shuttle service from Caldicot Cross to The David Broome Event Centre and back on both evenings and through Sunday afternoon.

Hoggin The Bridge takes place from Friday, October 11, until Sunday, October 13, beginning with a night of live comedy on the Friday (doors open at 7pm).

All events take place at the David Broome Event Centre. The motorcycle rally will leave Aust Services, travelling through Pwllmeyric, Caerwent, Penhow, Langstone, Magor, Undy, Rogiet and Caldicot, and finishing at the David Broome Event Centre.
