The Three Wheeled Duo are Back on the Roadbook
It’s a very, very rare occasion that a motorcycle and sidecar team take part in our Adventure Rallies and Raids, that is until quite recently. Early last year we met Dan and Billy, a father son duo who impressed us all by riding the Cotswolds Adventure Cannonball in freezing cold, very muddy conditions. It was the first time running the digital roadbook app at an event, and with Billy operating the tech from the sidecar (whilst being plunged into deep puddles of mud through narrow rutted lanes), and Dan in the saddle they made a fine team!

It does beg the question, are ’two man’ riding duos even at a disadvantage by adding a passenger? The second person essentially becomes the ‘co rider’, or at the very least they are a second set of eyes on the roadbook navigation, allowing the rider to focus on the riding. This is what we’ve learnt from the ’two ups’ we see fairly regularly at some of our Adventure Rallies.
Anyway, Billy and Dan must have enjoyed themselves as they were recently back for more, joining in on the digital roadbook winter series, the RallyMoto Ice Breaker Challenge.
Here is what they both had to say about their experience on the Cotswolds route.
