6,000mile solo motorbike challenge to the Artic Circle for brain injury charity Cerebra

Arctic RideLocal rider Gordon Stuart, who promoted his charity ride at BikeWise 2013  will set off on Saturday the 24th May, from St Marys Lighthouse, Whitley Bay at 0900hrs on a 6000 mile charity motorcycle ride in aid of brain injury charity Cerebra.

Gordon said :

In May and June of 2014 I will ride my motorbike from my home town of Whitley Bay in the North of England 6,000 miles to Nordkapp in Norway, the most northerly point in Europe and deep inside the Arctic Circle, and back home in just 3 weeks. This will see me ride and average of nearly 300 miles every day for 21 days straight on some of the most challenging roads in Europe. Not only will this test my physical strength of riding a 250kg motorbike for 8 hours a day, but also my mental fortitude of riding solo in foreign countries for 3 weeks straight. I attempted this trip back in May 2011 but unfortunately was involved in an accident on day 8 of the trip in Sweden and fell short on the trip by 1,000 miles. This time I'm determined to make it all the way.
The reason I am taking on this challenge is to raise money for brain injury charity Cerebra. Cerebra have helped my little brother Robbie ever who suffered an acquired brain injury at the age of 9 months old which has left him with severe learning difficulties. They have also provided much needed assistance to my family, especially my mum who has dedicated her life to looking after Robbie.
Please take the time to follow my progress, share what I'm doing with others and if you can donate some money via my virgin money giving page you'll be doing a great thing for a great cause. If you need anymore motivation, please time the take to think how sore my backside is going to be after 21 days sitting in a motorbike.
Ride safe.
Gordon”

Gordon deserves all the support we can give him as this ride is a huge personal undertaking, 300miles a day for 21 days in some severe weather conditions all in aid of charity !!  Gordon is hoping to be at BikeWise 2014 on Sunday 20th July where you will be able to talk to him about his ride.

Good Luck & Safe Ride Gordon from the ‘BikeWise Team’
