UPDATED 15/04/18

I did this ride 'Solo' in 2014 & 2016.

This year, I'm hoping to attract a number of UK County Bikers to join me on this epic journey as I cross over their respective borders.

My bike is equipped with a tracker, so you'll easily be able to follow my progress live.

Departure has now been set for the 1st of July. I shall be setting off from CASTLE MOTORCYCLES, Castleford, my main sponsor.

This is not a race! It will take me 10/11 days to complete the trip.

The route will be more or less the same that I took in 2016 and I would refer you to my Itinerary below.

Should you be interested in joining me on this pilgrimage around the UK,  please get in touch with me and I will send out sponsorship forms for you to sign up your biker friends, family and neighbours.

I look forward to hearing from you and if you can't make it, perhaps you may consider donating via the JustGiving link on this site.

 

I shall post more updates as the situation evolves.

My kind regards to all.

WISHING ALL THOSE WHO DONATED TOWARDS THE CAUSE IN 2017 A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

I'm sorry that I wasn't able to set off on another ride this year, but sponsorships were sadly lacking. Let's hope that next year will bring about a greater interest and that I am able to secure a sponsor/s.

Those bikers who wish to join me, please let me know and I'll be pleased to then work on the logistics.

I am appealing especially to motorbike manufacturers and dealers who may wish to sponsor me.

All that is needed is the loan of a bike for the duration of the ride, which normally lasts about 2 weeks. I am anxious to raise the profile of the charity and with your marketing assistance we might succeed in making it big into the media, attract more nationwide attention and raise more money for the cause.

Thank you to those who have so far supported me in my modest  efforts, Castle Motorcycles of Castleford, to name a few.

Kind Regards to all,

Roger aka BikerBiker
