Ride the county 2017 – Sat 20th May

20 May, 2017
It's official, back for another year. A different format for this year. Instead of the familiar 4 checkpoint format, this year it's a straight A-B run. You still get to plan your own route, as twisty or direct as you want, stop when you want, as often as you want. So, you ask, when and where? When : Saturday 20th May Where:  Our friends at Oxford products have invited us to start from their impressive HQ in Witney, Starting at 10.00 riders will be released in small groups to avoid congestion and will then head for the common finish point, Sammy Miller's Motorcycle Museum in Hampshire. Ride entry is again £10 minimum and as soon as we have resolved some problems with the website you will be notified and can sign up. You will also be encouraged to get sponsored for your ride. Why not make a weekend of it on the South coast or in the New Forest? The Sammy Miller website lists a host of places to stay. Bucket Challenge: The ridethecounty team will run a very convoluted route prior to the event and record the mileage. For some OPTIONAL added interest you will be invited to put £2 in a bucket on the day and record your start mileage, the rider with the nearest mileage to ours will win 50% of what is in the bucket. If riding as a group, simply multiply the £2 by the number of bikes, record the lead rider's mileage and the marshal will log you as a team entry. Breakfast We are currently trying to arrange a burger van at the start so you can fuel up before you ride out. Want to get involved: We will shortly be looking for sponsors for various items including drop cards (we usually distribute up to 4000 of these at various venues as well as sticking them on just about every static bike we see between now and the event). Raffle tickets and T-Shirts have also been sponsored in recent years. If you can help, please email the team info@ridethecounty.org.uk More details will be announced as we have them, including when the website is fixed. Look forward to seeing you all in May, The Ridethecounty team
