There are thou­sands of motorcyclists do­ing amaz­ing things for char­ity. From dress­ing up as car­toon char­ac­ters to rid­ing big dis­tances on in­ap­pro­pri­ate ma­chines, the lengths rid­ers go to in the name of char­ity is heart­warm­ing... and quite funny!

hou­sands of bikes cours­ing through town. Three old friends fight­ing on­ward through tor­ren­tial rain on tiny age­ing bikes. Darth Vader on a splut­ter­ing moped, bat­tling el­bow-toel­bow with a bearded, swim­suit-clad Pamela An­der­son. Mo­tor­ways packed with mo­tor­cy­cles as far as the eye can see, bright pop­pies flut­ter­ing amongst metal and leather…

TLet’s be hon­est: we bik­ers love any ex­cuse to go for a ride. But great causes in­spire even greater mo­tor­cy­cling ad­ven­tures. From solo en­durance chal­lenges span­ning con­ti­nents to a day spent rid­ing along­side thou­sands of like-minded motorcyclists, there’s a mind-bog­gling va­ri­ety of ways to make your pas­sion for bik­ing pay off for a wor­thy cause and it’s hard to know where to start. So MCN takes a closer look at four in­spi­ra­tional events from the past year to help you turn your pas­sion into ac­tion.
