MOTORCYCLISTS who meet in Flackwell Heath each week will be taking to the M40 on Sunday to protest against a raft of new rules affecting motorbikes.

Wycombe Motorcycle Action Group, which meets at The Stag pub, will add its voice to a national demonstration on Britain's roads.

Travelling in convoy at about 45mph, and using the inside lanes, the peaceful protest will aim to draw attention to a raft of proposed EU regulations.

The group says one of the proposals threatens to remove an owner’s right to modify their machine.

Wycombe MP Steve Baker is a member nd will be taking part in the demo.

He said: “I am delighted MAG is running this nationwide, peaceful and lawful protest against the EU’s unnecessary and oppressive over-regulation.

“Of course this protest is focused on motorcycles but it matters to everyone who loves liberty and who thinks state power should be restrained by democracy.

“Those behind the EU do not mean to harm us, they mean to help, but they must be stopped from turning all Europe into a graveyard for the human spirit.”

Wycombe MAG regularly supports the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust, so will be starting and finishing their ride from its 'Heli Bikes' event in Berinsfield, Oxfordshire.

Anyone who rides a motorcycle is welcome to attend. Meet the group at the H-Café before midday, or at M40 J8a services from 12.30pm.
