Two years ago (2012), I took over the post of Rallymaster for the Brit Butt Light 12-hour motorcycle photo rally / treasure hunt.
Prior to that it had been excellently run for the previous 3 years by Robert Roalfe (GrimRider).
The Brit Butt Light 4 Rally was entitled "Lost Boys & Rude Girls", and entailed visiting a number of places with names that either sounded rude, or had a link (however tenuous) with something "lost". Brit Butt Light 5 was "The Don Quixote Tour". Given the famous Don's propensitry for tilting at Windmills, the theme of the rally was "mills", in one form or another.
Examples of some of the places that riders went to include:
The Polished Knob, Todmorden; the Titanic Brewery; Undy (and Pant); Teesaurus Park; Minges Farmhouse; and Cockfosters.
The 2014 Brit Butt Light will take place on Saturday 19th July, 2014, starting at 8.00am "somewhere in Stoke-on-Trent". Its title - In Stoke....no-one can hear you scream (Take your protein pills, and put your helmet on).
The Rally entry fee will be £20 for riders, and £30 for rider and pillion - this covers a meal and the presentation, and any surplus will be split equally between the County Air Ambulance and Animal Lifeline - both very worthwhile causes. You can find the entry details at the link at the top of the page.
Last year a total of £260.00 was raised, split equally between the 2 charities - a big thank you to all who took part!
