#ride5000miles ‘Joining R5K has improved our lives’

Published: 20 May 2017

Why you should sign up to our #ride5000miles challenge

With the riding season underway, there is still time to join our #ride5000miles challenge. Thousands of British bikers are already members of our online community.

“It’s been great fun so far,” says MCN’s Matt Wildee. “A motorcycle is an awesome thing, but we’re all under pressure to do lots other things with our time. The annual mileage for most is about 3000 miles and this is all about making a point of using the bike more.

“The best thing about it is how people have come together. Members have been using our Facebook group to share great routes and places to ride, pics and hook up with others. There isn’t anywhere else like it online.”
