The Dambusters Ride

Date: 13 May 2023
Location: Woodhall Spa

The Dambusters Ride returns in 2023 to mark 80 years since the daring and audacious operation was carried out.

We’re back! This year with new Heritage routes and more exciting plans yet to be announced. Sign up to find out how you can honour those who took part in Operation Chastise, and in turn help us continue the work we’ve been doing for over 100 years.

The virtual event takes place over the weekend of 6-7 May 2023, or you can join us at the historical Petwood Hotel (Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire) on Saturday 13 May 2023 to ride the Heritage 40, 80 or 100-mile routes.
