Despatch Rally: Dorset
12 May 2018
The Despatch Rally is a unique motorcycling event. Unlike a show or a ride-out, the aim of this event is to encourage riders to get out and explore Dorset as part of a military themed competition.
In honour the despatch motorcycle riders from whom motorbike culture descended, the riders are set loose to explore the various challenges on their own terms using a map and making individual choices. The Despatch Rally celebrates the union of man and machine and is a great chance to cover some miles in the saddle!
Nostalgic simplicity is the backbone, promoting map reading, communication and celebrating putting pen to paper. The day will consists of a series of challenges and checkpoints based all over Dorset. Scores are allocated to participants and winners are awarded at the finale rendezvous at the end of the day.
Participants are issued with a ration ride log and serviceman’s map at the HQ containing key information, it’s then up to participants to plan their day accordingly, some are very competitive and want to do all of the challenges, others like to pick and choose a couple.
Despatch Rally HQ will close the day’s events with food, drink, live music, raffle and prize giving.
