Some frequent questions answered …

What type of bike can I use for the Ice Breaker Challenge?

On our RallyMoto Challenge events we do not restrict the type of bike you can use. Routes are graded and created to be Big Bike friendly – but you can ride any bike you want to.

Do I need my own roadbook holder?

No. All you need is a suitable phone or tablet. More info here: https://rallymoto.co.uk/digital-app-specification/

What if I breakdown?

Due to the nature of this event – you are on your own. It maybe good to ride in a small group or in pairs.

Will I need off-road tyres?

We have made suggestions as to the route and terrain. We would recommend a tyre with some off-road capability – like a dual sport tyre or a full off-road tyre.

Can I ride with my mates?

Yes, the Ice Breaker Challenge can be a solo or a group effort with participants riding together.
