Adventure Touring is currently the fastest growing sector of the Motorcycle Industry. In spite of this rapid growth, there is still limited content out there that specializes in Adventure Riding. Most motorcycle publications cover a wide range of categories, with only the occasional Adventure Bike story squeezed in. In addition, much of the online content is poorly written and good content is hard to find.
Through our website, you’ll learn more about the latest Adventure Bikes and Products to help guide your purchasing decisions. You can discover exciting new rides in faraway places or right on your own home turf. You’ll get tips on how to better prepare for your next trip and improve your riding skills. We are also building a community of like-minded Adventure Riders eager to share ideas and meet up for rides.
Our goal is simple, to motivate Adventure Bike Riders to ride more and have more fun doing it.
Welcome to Biker Rallies UK.
If you ride a Motorbike, Scooter, Classic Bike or Trike then we have a rally aimed at you.
Here we want to give you some riding experiences you will remember and share with your friends.
Our annual events will cover different parts of the country each year starting with the Lincolnshire Wolds and also the East and North Yorkshire Moors.
Our rallies will cover one day runs and a summer long themed event.
Full details of these can be seen on our Rallies page.
As a site run for bikers we are always looking for feedback, so if you come along to one of our events and think we could do it better or offer more then please let us know. We want you to keep coming back and enjoying the rides.
All other sites dedicated to long distance riding seem to have the same format - they prescribe a set of limited distance/time requirements based on outdated and easily circumvented evidence which you either pass or fail. Options are generally limited to doing more of the same in less time, and paying a premium for a certificate to recognise the fact.
We aim to do things differently; to be far more inclusive in how we do things and far more wide ranging in the types of motorcycle rides we recognise.We work on the basis of recognising challenges you have set for yourself. You decide on the parameters for these rides, examples might include:
Riding from Dover to Durness within 24 hours
Visiting 50 castles in a year
Visiting every motorcycle racing circuit with a group of mates
Riding a moped from one side of the country to the other
Completing a particular rally/ challenge which does not issue a certificate
Visiting as many branches of Tesco's as you can in 12 hours (the 'UKgser' option' :))
We will ask for evidence of your ride - this may be through online recording, photographs, GPS tracks and/or receipts.
We are both travelling pirates who enjoy adventuring to lands near and far in the hope to raise awareness and monies for our three stupendous charities: The Wales Air Ambulance, Riders 4 Health and The World Land Trust!
Follow our trips and tales on this site or alternatively our Chasing Horizons Facebook Page where all the shenanigans goes on!
