Grim Rider's Websites
A site dedicated to long distance motorcycling &
home of the Grim Riders MCC; the British Long Distance Riders;
and the Moped Challenge
The East Coast Challenge is run by Paul Davey of Davey Bros. Motorcyles in Ipswich. All proceeds go to EACH and Riders for Health charities. You simply dowload an entry form, complete the ride, send the form, your photos and a cheque for £10 in, and get back a commemorative mug and sticker. The ride comprises visiting 5 specified towns in Norfolk and Suffolk in a day, in any order but starting and finishing at the same town and taking at least 7 and no more than 24 hours. We took part in July, spending a day visiting these towns and collecting a number of Round Britain Rally landmarks as well. I did actually misread the instructions (!) and didn't go back to our starting town, but was luckily still entered in the list of finishers - after all it's just for charity!
The East Coast Challenge was withdrawn at the end of 2010 so cannot be completed any more.
