WHAT IS R5K?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

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.
