WHAT IS R5K?
MCN’S campaign to encourage as many people 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 to squeeze in time for some extra motorcycle miles. You’ll end up a better rider and a happier person. What’s more, you’ll be able to tap into stacks of brilliant riding tips and know-how.
How do I do it?
Make a note of your mileage at the start of your biking year. Many members take a photo at the start of the term and at the end and share it on our Facebook page. Make a concerted effort to ride your bike more. Reap the benefits of increased machine control, a happier outlook on life, more friends and a wealth of tales to tell.
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. Get out there and enjoy it.
