TV comedian Ross Noble will be riding to the ExCeL exhibition centre at this year’s must event for motorbike lovers everywhere.

The 2012 Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show, which runs from February 2 to 5, will be attracting a host of big names, some of whom will be raising money for Riders for Health.

Among them is Red Dwarf’s and BBC1’s drama Death in Paradise, Danny John Jules who will be sporting his trademark pink motorbike while accompanying Noble.

They will set off from renowned biker venue Ace Cafe London in Stonebridge on Saturday February 4 at 9.00am and ride to ExCeL.

Bikers from across the country are invited to join the celebrity ride out and show their support for Riders for Health, which manages and maintains vehicles for African health workers so they can deliver much-needed health care to the most isolated communities.

The show is the capital’s largest biking event and gives riders the chance to meet their heroes as well as seeing action-packed stunts and the latest 2012 bikes and accessories from all the major manufacturers ranging from Ducati Panigale to the Triumph Explorer. It will also feature the jaw-dropping Michelin Revolution Show, in which World trials icon Dougie Lampkin and TT champion John McGuinness will go head-to head over a specially constructed course that tests both skill and nerve.

They will be joined by multiple world Enduro champion David Knight, fan’s favourite Chris Walker, BSB, WSB and GP ace Neil Hodgson and record breaking TT winner Ian Hutchinson who will compete in two teams to tackle breath-taking obstacles putting their nerves and skill to the test.

Noble said: “The Carole Nash MCN Motorcycle Show is a highlight of the biking event calendar and it will be great to arrive at ExCeL in style, in a convoy with hundreds of other bikers. Everyone taking part in the ride out will be supporting a worthy charity.”

Tickets for the show, supported by media partner The Daily Telegraph, cost £20 and children go free. Call 08445814924 or
