The first round of the Big Bike Rally Challenge is scheduled for June 25th. The event HQ will be Sweet Lamb with the “Big Bike” course of 160km being navigated by an easy roadbook especially written and simplified to use with your bikes existing trip.
The tracks are all easy going and have been test ridden in advance on a “Big Bike” – Dual Sport tyres are advised for the course.
If you don’t have a roadbook holder, we can supply one as part of the entry for the event.
If you ever fancied having a go at the Dakar and wondered what the navigation was like – then this is the ideal place to start.

We would like to see more adventure bikes doing this event and giving roadbook navigating a go.

What’s the minimum numbers you need Burt?15/05/2017 at 11:31 am #71088
We really need 40 competitors to make this work as a minimum.
Do you think revising the entry fee would help? We could not have GPS tracking !!!

Considering the rally is only one day, you could check the entry fee, maybe can help to more riders want to participate.

I wish I could join you guys for this but I won’t be in the UK on this date and I won’t have one of my bikes there until I relocate in August but I keep reading posts here and get more and more excited in getting involved in this community. I hope you get a massive turnout to help secure future events 🙂15/05/2017 at 12:03 pm #71092
OK – I will re-work some figures.
Maybe only the Rally Class is tracked and the Big Bikes are not.

Could the bike bikes track themselves via their own GPS and then provide you with their GPX plot if they want to compete?
Might be worth promoting this via ABR, TRF, etc if not done so already.15/05/2017 at 12:55 pm #71095
Good ideas on the promo front – I will work on this.
The GPS tracking does quite a bit – mainly speed zone control and route checking – but it is all via a centralised server. I think dealing with multiple gpx tracks could be a bit of a headache.
Forestry are keen on the GPS tracking to set speed zones in certain areas in the forest where access is required by residents !
