For another year, 4,000 motorbikes will ride across Madrid, for their Army and for their flag, in the 4th edition of the Army Motorbike Ride. On Sunday 11th June, bikers will ride from the Army Headquarters near Plaza de Cibeles and continue down Madrid’s Gran Vía, displaying the national flag and showing their connection to the Army. The group will continue in the direction of the ‘El Goloso’ base, the headquarters of the 12th 'Guadarrama' Brigade where, as in previous editions, the ride will end.


The 12th Armoured ‘Guadarrama’ Brigade will hold an open day, which will include a parade of the oldest combat tanks in the Armoured Materials Museum, along with period cars, exhibitions of different materials, equipment and weaponry, a musical parade from the War Band and the chance to visit the Armoured Materials Museum and the Historic Hall of the nº 31 ‘Asturias’ Regiment.
