Thousands of bikers are expected turned the M60 motorway into a ring of red on Remembrance Sunday (14 November).
Around 4,000 motorbikes are expected to take part in this year’s event, which sees participants don red and take to the motorway, appearing to make a huge red poppy around Manchester when viewed from above.
The ride travels clockwise from Birch services, westbound onto the M62, completing a full lap of the M60, returning to Birch.
Organised by Jeanette Netty Keily, The Ring of Red Ride M60 is an annual event to present a physical show of support for members of the Armed Forces, both current and former members.
An additional ride takes place around the M25 in London at the same time.
Bikers are able to arrive from 9am onwards. The ride will comment at 1pm after a minute’s silence.
Those who don’t ride are asked to show support on the M60’s bridges from 12noon onwards.
