You will see places you have never seen
You will ride fantastic roads through fantastic scenery
It will be a challenge but very rewarding
You will make friends for life

Beware.....long disance riding can be addictive

Here's some photos of places I've been to over the years during the annual Brit Butt Rally:

2010 - Kirkstone Pass Inn in the Lake District. And yes, those two guys must have wondered why I rode up, got off to take a picture then got back on and rode off :)


Couldn't find any photos from 2011 but here's RAF High Wycombe from 2012.


Another from 2012, the Yellow Submarine outside Liverpool Airport.


2013 - Dovedale stepping stones in Derbyshire.


Another from 2013, Tar Steps in Exmoor.


In 2014 I was off the bike due to a prang. Here's one from 2015 on the Saturday. Half a stage coach outside this famous pub in Snowdonia.


2015 again and the next day I was at the tip of Cornwall.


A third one from 2015, outside the museum near Birmingham.


2016 - Regents Park in London (nice and quiet at 8 in the morning).


Another from 2016, Dover Lighthouse.


2016 again, on-board the Boddinnick Ferry in Cornwall, early on Sunday morning.


2016 yet again and a view of Port Isaac on the North Cornish coast.

All iron butt association rallies follow the same basic format as the 11 day bi-annual Iron Butt Rally in the USA. You choose your route around possibly bonus locations. Take a photo including your rally flag and gain points for the bonuses.
It's about planning an efficient ride then riding that route in the allotted time.
Plan the Ride, Ride the plan.

Need more inspiration?


This a clip I return to time from time, and it tells me that I really need to ride that rally.
