It doesn’t really matter how many miles you intend to ride this year - if you have a bike, or just love biking, you can join the #ride5000miles Facebook group. Over 10,000 bikers have joined the group since it launched, helping it become a real community – one that our members tell us is the friendliest biker group on the web. The Facebook group is a place to share your pictures, stories, routes, tips and encouragement plus there’s also a monthly email newsletter with exclusive offers, competitions and routes inspiring you to ride 5000 miles this biking season.
Our research shows that the average rider does about 3000 miles a year, but having a target that pushes past that distance helps enrich your biking life. At the very least, riding more will make you more at-one with your machine, but if you use the target to spend more time with your biking mates, or head out on a trip you’ve always fancied, it’ll improve your life, too.
The world is a wonderful place full of two-wheeled adventures waiting to be enjoyed – don’t miss out on the experience.
