WHAT IS R5K?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

MCN’S cam­paign to en­cour­age as many read­ers as pos­si­ble to cover 5000 miles in a year is all about get­ting the most en­joy­ment pos­si­ble from your mo­tor­cy­cle. We re­alise life is full of pres­sures that stop you bik­ing, but there’s al­ways a way.

So #ride5000miles is all about find­ing time on a Sun­day to go for a blast, or do­ing that tour or trip you’ve al­ways wanted to do. It can even be about just rid­ing your bike to work more of­ten.

There’s a great net­work set up to help you achieve this – and thou­sands of bik­ers have al­ready signed up to our #ride5000miles Face­book group. It’s a won­der­ful place full of friendly faces who are happy to share routes, ex­pe­ri­ences and tips. Even if you’re not go­ing to be able to com­plete 5000 miles, be­ing a mem­ber of the Face­book group will im­prove your bik­ing life.

How do I do it?

Keep a note of your mileage. Many R5K mem­bers take pics of their odome­ter as a record.

What do I win?

Noth­ing – but sat­is­fac­tion, a greater love for bikes and bik­ing, and per­haps a lit­tle bit of fame. We reg­u­larly fea­ture R5K mem­bers in the pa­per, and show­case your ex­pe­ri­ences to get even more peo­ple to join in with the chal­lenge. We want the world to ride 5000 miles – and it’s re­ally not that hard.
