More riders pass the magic 5000 figure

Published: 09 November 2017

This week has seen a rush of riders reaching the #ride5000miles mark with people making the most of the great autumn weather. Our Facebook site has seen a rise in members reaching their milestone numbers before the weather closes in.

But what’s great about the R5K movement is that it isn’t just about clocking miles, it’s a great place for help and advice from what is the friendliest crowd in motorcycling.


Reader Chris Wright has experienced this and after consulting our 4000-member site, he heeded their advice on navigation gear after posting on Facebook. “Just hit 5000 miles yesterday on a trip to Brighton,” he said. “But it was also the first time using my satnav. I used my iPhone with the Waze app with Bluetooth to my earplugs. Just waiting on my Oxford Aqua dryphone holder (under £20) and should be sorted. Big thanks to all who have contributed to this subject and indeed to the numerous other helpful and friendly posts. Well done MCN, too.”

If you haven’t joined our Facebook site yet you should – it’s full of wisdom, inspiration and bloody nice people!
