Do you love an adventure on wheels as much as us? Well, what's better than combining your thrill-seeking hobby with raising money for worthy causes? We've got a calendar of fun ways to do just that on a bike, motorcycle or in a car.

Promising far more excitement than a bog-standard fundraising idea, these are challenges like no other. From crossing Europe in a banger to creating the biggest poppy using motorbikes. There are some really unique ways to get involved:

The Motoscape Banger Rally – From Saturday 1st September 2018

Drive your choice of banger across Europe!

Grab a couple of friends and head off on the adventure of a lifetime. The Motoscape challenge is to drive a car of your choice (banger or classic) to Prague or Venice! Starting in France, you'll see spectacular lakes and bridges on the open road, and get to soak up the breath-taking mountain scenery.

There are extra challenges along the drive, giving you the opportunity to win points! There are cash prizes for the 3 with the most points, and even for the best designed car and fancy dress… the heat is on!

You're encouraged to take part for a charity, raising sponsorship funds, (that's not compulsory though). Compete for any charity of your choice – last year the event raised over an incredible £65,000.

The Ring of Red – Sunday 11th November 2018

Make the biggest poppy in the world around the M25!

This unique fundraiser is to show support for the current and ex Armed Forces. An idea developed by famous biker, Julia Stevenson, it occurs on Remembrance Sunday.

The event aims to create a circle of motor bikers, all dressed in red outfits, and riding clockwise round the M25. This forms a gigantic poppy in honour. As a rider, you can choose where to get on and off and can donate to the ride at the meeting points.
