Share your riding goals with #ride5000miles

1 of 1

It may be approaching the end of the biking season, but there’s no reason why you can’t still sign up to our #ride5000miles challenge.

“The beauty of R5K is that you pledge to cover 5000 miles in a 12-month period,” says MCN’s Matt Wildee. “So, you can do it any time.” More than 8000 riders have signed up so far.


At the centre of R5K is our Facebook group where riders share their goals, meet up for rideouts and banter about bikes.

“It’s been a great help,” says new member Michael Mountfield. “I joined just before collecting my new BMW GS on September 1. I enjoy the blogs and have received good advice from fellow GS riders.”

Veteran Jon Ashley agrees: “This is a community with a purpose, very simple one: Get out on your bike, see and do stuff and let everyone know about it. The membership has been so positive.

“Tips, trips and general advice have been in abundance. It’s entertaining and informative, with new connections made and now lots of plans. There must be millions of miles of biking generated in the last year alone.”
