A motorcycle club that is focused on taking adventure & rallying forwards in the UK.
The club was started in 2011 as a way to promote motorcycle rallying in the UK and provide a platform for like minded riders. We are affiliated to the ACU and the club is a registered events promoter.
A real adventure rally navigation series, consisting of three events for adventure riders and “Big Bikes”. The Kielder 500, Wales 500 and IOM 500 from a series of adventure rally events that together form the Adventure Spec Challenge.
All the 500’s are 100% roadbook adventure rallies that are judged on navigation skill over a two day course of 500km’s or more.
A true adventure for adventure bikes and adventure bike riders.
A fantastic 5 day roadbook adventure rally starting in Spain and heading into the heart of Portugal. A great event that mixes an adventure rally with a tour. You will visit the undiscovered parts of Portugal using back roads and trails – whilst accommodation is four star luxury.
Organised and run by RallyMoto and our partners Portugal OffRoad.
Adventure Cannonball Ride Outs
A series of fun roadbook events for members aimed at getting riders into road book navigation. These events are run by members around the UK and RallyMoto is able to provide some “Get you going” roadbook holders to help riders get a feel for roadbook navigation and rallying.
RallyMoto was also instrumental in bringing bikes back to the BAJA GB event in 2015 and 2016 with cars and bikes running in the same event – just like an international rally event. In 2016 RallyMoto also ran a roadbook option for the bikes.
RallyMoto is looking to do more events in the UK.
RallyMoto is at the forefront of promoting roadbook navigational events and rallies both in the UK. The club ran the first “proper” roadbook rally, Pikes Peak for 26 years in the UK, with full GPS tracking for competitors and a speed penalty system.
RallyMoto runs roadbook training and practice days in the UK, affectionately called “Roadbook Capers” to help grow and support the sport. Any member can take part in these one day “fun” events and learn about roadbook nagivation in a friendly and sociable environment.
