I'm going to attempt a 'Saddle Sore 1600' - a long distance motorcycle ride, of a minimum of 1600km, all within 24 hours. - It's not a race.

This type of event is recognised internationally as a long distance endurance motorcycle ride, with certification provided through the 'Iron Butt Association'. Participants need to follow certain rules to achieve their award.

It's a test of mental and physical endurance. I'm aiming to ride in Mid-Late Feb, 2017, during a weekday, weather dependant. I'm aiming to raise $1 per km of riding for Aran Animal Rescue.

I will be one of two riders attempting this ride together.

I'm keen to do this both for my own personal achievement and as a fundraiser for Aran Animal Rescue. ~ They do wonderful work saving the lives of dogs who are on death row at animal shelters around NZ; often through no fault of their own.

All funds raised go to:

  • ARAN Animal Rescue NZ

    ARAN Animal Rescue NZ - working to bring attention to the plight of dogs in Council Pounds in New Zealand, and save as many as we can.

“Way to go! Good luck.”
“All the best !”
“A very worthwhile cause - happy to donate.”
“Good luck Chris and Jon. Wish I was able to join you.”
“Good luck Chris; all the best for the long ride ahead!...”
“Good luck!”
“Great cause. All the best with your ride”
“Not too sadle sore I hope!”
“Good luck Chris. Ride safe and hope the sore arse doesn't get you xx”
“Good on you Chris, you'really an inspiration! I have been aware of ARAN's activities for a while and am keen to be able to support them in their amazing work and help dogs find their forever homes ☺”
