BIKER RALLIES UK DO NOT PROVIDE ANY INSURANCE COVER FOR THESE CHALLENGES AND ACCEPTS NO LIABILITIES IN ANY RESPECT FOR ANY RIDER/PASSENGER TAKING PART IN THIS EVENT.
It is therefore VERY IMPORTANT – You should check that your Motorcycle insurance covers you for this event.
This is not a race and speed plays no part, in the challenge whatsoever.
You are therefore strongly advised to check with your Insurer before taking part.
Passengers/Pillions: Many Passengers take their turn in riding, this can help reduce tiredness brought about by long stints on the front, even though you comply with the compulsory rest breaks.
It is essential that Passengers/Pillions check that they are insured whilst riding in the event. Although many Passengers who own a motorcycle may have cover to “ride other motorcycles with the owner’s permission”, they may not be covered whilst riding in such an Event. Therefore Passengers/Pillions are recommended to check their insurance cover to ensure they are covered for such an event as it is unlikely they will be covered by the main entrants own bike policy.
Accommodation is available at or near the start point, please see main Scatter Rally page for details of the start point, bacon rolls and hot drinks available at the start and evening meals available until 20:30 at your own expense.
Your starting time will be between 09:30 – 10:30 with the finish being between 15:00 – 22:00
