"WATCH THIS SPACE"
HEREFORDSHIRE ON THE EDGE – JUNE 26TH 2016
The first ever running of this unique event gave riders a chance to explore by motorcycle some remote and beautiful corners of one of Britain‘s most scenic, historic and least visited counties.
“Herefordshire on the Edge” provided an enjoyable, non-competitive, long distance event, designed to challenge entrants’ riding and navigation skills and to test their machines over a wide range of surfaced roads. 24 waypoints were spaced at roughly 10 mile intervals around the border of Herefordshire. Riders could plan and follow their route to visit as many of these points as they chose. The minimum distance to visit all 24 points was about 240 miles Code boards or other easy to locate identifiers were displayed at each of the 24 points so that proof of passage could be established. Entrants were allowed to use any appropriate equipment to plan and follow their route (i.e. Satnavs were allowed).
All finishers successfully visiting the 4 designated cardinal points plus any other 4 points received a bronze award. Those visiting cardinal points plus 8 others received a silver and those visiting 18 points, including the cardinal points received a gold. Entrants visiting all 24 points, should be very proud of their achievement.
It was hoped that the event would attract riders from all over the UK to share our beautiful county so it was advertised “Herefordshire on the Edge” as widely as possible. Since 2016, this event continues to be very popular with entrants from all over the country. In 2021, there were 102 machines entered.
In 2020, the event had to be cancelled due to Covid 19
