The concept is simple.
You ride your own bike and have your adventure. The route is supplied on the day in an easy to understand “adventure” style roadbook, the length of the route is typically 200 – 300km and includes roads, back roads and very easy trails on occasions.
You navigate and ride the route. The roadbook provides notes for fuel stops, cafes, points of interest and photo opportunities along the way.
You can ride in groups or on your own. You can ride fast or slow. You can stop along the route for coffee and lunch or just do it one hit – it’s your adventure, so you do it your way.
At the end of the route we all meet up and exchange stories about the day.
The Adventure Cannonball Club is all creating adventure events for “Big Bikes” both here in the UK and abroad. Pre-ridden routes are supplied to members at each event and they are navigated by a simple “adventure” style roadbook that the club has pioneered.
As a club member you can join our Adventure Cannonball runs (members only), with the club providing adventure style roadbooks, roadbook holders and we can provide help and training for all club members.
The Adventure Cannonball Club is a club for like-minded adventure riders would want to navigate their own adventures using a simple “adventure” style roadbook. The club organises 12 UK based Adventure Cannonballs at various locations around the UK and also 2 overseas Adventure Cannonballs per annum. All activities are closed to club so you will have to be a member to take part.
The format of each Adventure Cannonball is the same:-
- Meet at a pre-determined location
- Pick up your roadbook and roadbook holder ( the club has 40 for hire!)
- Set up
- Attend the short briefing for the day
- Ride for 150 – 250km per day – maybe further on the overseas adventures.
- Get together at the end of the day and talk about the day’s highlights.
About the Roadbook
The roadbook is a simple, easy to understand roadbook with obvious navigation, including road signs, road numbers, cafes, fuel stops, points of interest and photo opportunities. It is not written as a full “rally type” roadbook.
About the Route
The route taken will primarily suit adventure bikes and can be ridden on road or dual sport tyres. All routes will have been pre-ridden and approved for road tyres.
In order to take part in any Adventure Cannonball event or activity you must be a member, this helps us with costs for roadbook printing, organising new routes, permissions where necessary, roadbook holders for hire and maintenance. You can pay either monthly or annually – click here to join.
