2017 MATES4MATES 
BIG BATTLEFIELD BIKE RIDE.

PROUDLY CYCLING FOR WOUNDED, INJURED AND ILL AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE FORCE MATES AND THEIR FAMILIES.

Mates4Mates is proud to partner with Help for Heroes, one of Britain’s most important armed services charities, to provide our Australian Mates the opportunity to participate in the annual Help for Heroes Big Battlefield Bike Ride (BBBR). 

The Big Battlefield Bike Ride is the perfect blend of cycling and historical poignancy by taking part in this flagship cycling challenge.

Riding alongside over 200 others over approx 560km, you will start in Lille, France, pass through Waterloo then roughly follow the footsteps of the 1944 Allied Forces to reach Arnhem as the ride's finishing point.

In Arnhem you'll get to see the annual commemoration of the parachute jump, something that has come to epitomise this period of military history.

They will also have the opportunity to celebrate the Heroes we now collectively support – riding alongside the Help for Heroes Band of Brothers and hearing their inspiring stories first-hand.

Mates4Mates provide free access to a range of practical support and rehabilitation programs like BBBR to overcome the physical and psychological wounds unique to those who have served.
