1000 miles in 24 hours motorcycle ride, how hard can it be? In June I entered the RBLR1000 2018 charity motorcycle ride in aid of the Poppy Appeal, a popular endurance ride undertaken by well over 100 bikes each year.
Having managed to find a few friends (nutcases) who wanted to do the ride with me, we embarked on this grueling feat of long distance motorcycle riding, also known as the Saddlesore 1000, one of the many accredited distance rides set by the Iron Butt Association, IBA.
Starting and finishing at Squires Cafe in Leeds, you have exactly 24 hours to ride a minimum distance of 1,000 miles which must be proved via VAT receipts obtained along your route. This event is an annual ride in aid of the Royal British Legion and their Poppy Appeal, with riders given the option of either heading South to Land’s End, or North to Wick in Scotland, with either course being done in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction.
We chose north-clockwise, sat astride our noble steeds, and hit the throttle. What could go wrong?
Live Your Life.
