Set up originally in 2012 in Australia as a solo challenge, in 2019 it attracted 116,000 riders from 104 countries around the world.
Partnered with Triumph, the Challenge is to ride a set route on Vintage, Classic, or ‘Classic Modern’ motorbikes, dressed as ‘distinguished gentlemen’.
Scott Elliott, 32, and Mike Grist, 33, took part on a Suzuki FZ50 and a Royal Enfield. Their goal was to follow most of the coastline of the Isle of Wight, where possible, both starting and finishing at Stag Lane Motors near Newport, who were on-hand to provide any support if needed.
Scott and Mike have currently raised in excess of £550. You can donate to Prostate Cancer UK, and Men’s Health Charities Worldwide via this link: https://gfolk.me/ScottElliott378603.
The duo say:
“A big thanks to Stag Lane Motors for the Support, and also to Zak Marshall and Bailey Streets for their involvement along the way.”
