We grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses.


BarbersRide Established in 2017

BarbersRide was started by a bunch of biking barbers and industry guys that wanted to combine their love of biking and barbering with a fundraising charity event. In August 2017 the first event kicked off, from Dundee to London over 5 days and was a roaring success, raising over £10,000. Since then, every year has got bigger and better! 

We’ve raised over £86,000 for charity so far! 

We are very proud of the fact that 100% of all funds received are donated to the charity and that the BarbersRide crew give all their time willingly and completely free of charge. 

2021 (our 5th year) presented itself with a few challenges but against all the odds, 30+ bikers enjoyed the ride of their lives, making great new friendships along the journey and raising much needed funds for children with life debilitating illnesses. This was our BIGGEST YEAR to date with regards to riders and we raised over £20,000!


Our 2022 mission: 

To raise over £25,000 for Make-A-Wish whilst enjoying the unbeatable sense of camaraderie that only a motorcycling road trip could offer.

Make-A-Wish UK grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. Granting their wish provides seriously ill children with hope for the future, strength to cope and resilience to fight their condition. They’re given quality time away from the daily realities of living with their condition and given the chance to make magical memories they can treasure forever – whatever their future may hold. We want to transform the lives of 1,000 children this year by granting their One True Wish!
