The RBLR1000 was established in 2009 to raise funds for the Poppy Appeal and to encourage riders to challenge themselves in a uniquely supportive event. It also gains the participants who complete the ride an Iron Butt certification.
This year's ride takes place on Saturday the 24th of June. The start and finish point is Squires Cafe Bar. This year you have a choice of five routes: North (clock-wise and anti clock-wise), South (clock-wise and anti clock-wise)and a 500 mile route (anti clock-wise only).
The Iron Butt Association is dedicated to safe, long-distance, endurance motorcycle riding. They have over 60,000 members world-wide. One of their more popular slogans is: "The World Is Our Playground."
The Iron Butt Association is not a club as such. There are no membership fees. There is only one way to become a member - you must successfully complete a certified IBA ride. Read more about the IBA here.

Please read ALL of the documents, as you have to confirm that you have before entering.
Alternatively, if you don't want to do the actual ride, why not help out! You can either stay near by or have a free weekend camping. All information about helping out can be found on the forum.
The Northern and Southern routes are just over 1000 miles and can be ridden in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction. There is also a 500 mile route, which must be ridden in an anti-clockwise direction. This means you actually have five routes in total to choose from.
