THE ARCTIC RIDER STORY

"Gordon Stuart (AKA The Arctic Rider) is on a mission to ride his motorbike across the Arctic Circle in every country possible, while raising money and awareness for causes close to his heart."

“It started in 2011 as a charity ride to the Arctic Circle that didn’t really go to plan, and has become a near obsession with the Arctic, an obsession with riding a motorbike, and an obsession helping organisations who help others” - Traverse Magazine, November 2017.

To date, Gordon has raised over £13,000 for charities, ridden over 14,000 miles as part of the challenges.

Gordon is an Ambassador UK-brain injury charity Cerebra and global youth leader forum One Young World, and fundraiser for special care babies charity Tiny Lives. He is keen motorcyclist, writer, and film maker.

11 days to go

Hello again

Sorry for the lack of updates. I am coming up to my final final exam hand in date and the library has been my home over the last few days. I have managed to fit some biking in recently. I have had my heated gloves and socks fitted thanks to Bernie and I have tested the bike out on a medium length journey. Apart from a few screen realted wind problems, everything seems good.(touch wood)

I have booked the bike in for a service so it will be ready for the big trip a week on Saturday.

I have also had some more sponsorship and am getting closer to my target of £1000. A kind family who have also been helped by Cerebra have now sponsored me and have also agreed to come to the starting line which will be brill!

I'll have an early start on day two as the ferry is now booked and I leave the UK at 8.15am and head across the water to Calais to start the trek.

Robbie and I have been in the local paper again which is good. Click on this link to view it - https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0Bxx-UawKUM6KNDQ0M2E0OWItMDQ3Ny00YTI2LThiOGUtYTNmYjU2NTQ1YmQz&hl=en&authkey=CIiO8I4K or copy and paste it into your browser.

That's all for now. I will be in touch soon.

Ride Safe

Gordon
