Rallymoto are best known for their 500 series and one-day Cannonball events, which see hundreds of riders taking their adventure bikes around a set course.
Riders navigate with a paper roadbook, just like at the Dakar, and are tracked to see how well they have followed the route. Points are awarded for accurate navigation, rather than speed. But because mass participation events are now a real struggle, the team at Rallymoto have created a ‘rally in a box’ package.
When you join the challenge, you’re posted a box that includes a roadbook holder and a roadbook covering one route. The idea being that in your own time you fit the kit, then ride the route.
There are questions along the way, to be sure you’ve followed the correct course. Once you’re done, you simply post the roadbook back to Rallymoto HQ and they send another route out.
All in all there are eight routes to choose from around the country (local lockdowns permitting) and you’ll need to complete three routes within three months to complete the challenge.
Everyone who successfully completes will be in with a chance of winning a place for one of their ‘500’ events when they can resume.
Entry into the Ice Breaker Challenge has now closed but Rallymoto announce new events all the time. For more information about future rallies and membership visit the Rallymoto website.
