They are planning to arrive on the Rock on Wednesday 2nd June and set off on Sunday 6th around 1030hrs.

They add: "Our plan is to raise money for Help for Heroes.

"We are a group of scooterists who want to show how proud we are of all the armed forces serving across the world and wanted to do something in return.

"We are going to ride from the army base in Gibraltar back to the UK via the Eurolambretta in Gijon, northern Spain in June. The bikes will be shipped to Gibraltar and we will fly there to begin the journey.

"We will be fundraising via a stall selling Help for Heroes merchandise during the 2009 scooter rally season."
