The WSMBA – Sussex Chapter is one of thirty Widows Sons Chapters across the UK. Some of their objectives are to enjoy our biking by arranging ride-outs together and events to raise much-needed funds for local charities. They occasionally join and support other WS chapters on their rides and also other biking groups that arrange charity events.

A charity with the highest standards

The DocBike charity is controlled by a very senior Board of Trustees embracing a balanced spectrum of skills and experience including all three emergency services and legal backgrounds.

All are either keen motorcyclists themselves or passionate about keeping motorcyclists from coming to harm. 

Trustees are appointed in accordance with the DocBike constitution and meet regularly to promote, enhance and sustain the work of the charity. As a result of their National Partnerships, many of the Trustees are engaged in shaping the way the UK helps to protect motorcyclists from coming to harm. Our Research forms a key part of this work. 

DocBike is registered with the UK Charities Commission and is committed to maintaining the highest standards of fundraising behaviour.

Our very own Editor, John Allsopp, has recently been recently asked to become a regional manager to create a service for the people of Sussex.

John has been a passionate supporter of the Doc Bike charity for many years and was delighted, and humbled when recently asked to come on board.

He’s currently working hard (about the only time he does!) to secure the funds and vehicles  – along with more volunteers – to launch the project as soon as possible

Who are Doc Bike and what do they do?

When motorcyclists are involved in a collision, often their injuries are catastrophic, and no amount of medical care can save a person’s life.

This is why a lot of the DocBike charity’s time is invested in preventing motorcyclist from being in a collision in the first place.

Working together with emergency services all across the UK, it is our aim to have a DocBike associated with every air ambulance charity around the country. We are a new charity, but the enthusiasm of local bikers, colleagues in the Emergency Services and other agencies throughout the UK means that we are expanding rapidly.

The DocBike charity combines a highly qualified (consultant level) doctor or critical care paramedic with two wheels to reduce deaths and serious injuries on our roads due to motorcycle collisions.

Wherever possible, this doctor or paramedic also works on the local air ambulance. It is part of their everyday job, to treat and save the most severely injured and sick patients and help them to reach the hospital alive.
