WHAT IS R5K?
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.
