"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.

Welcome back from The Arctic Rider


Welcome back to the Arctic Ride blog. I told myself that once my ride was finished I would continue to blog but that hasn't quite happened. While I've been active on the Arctic Ride Facebook page and on my Twitter account I haven't been able to keep up the progress on this blog. Not without good reason though as at the start of August my daughter Islay was born and has been occupying my time ever since. You'll be please to know I've already had her wearing my lid watching the Moto GP with her.

Back on to Arctic Ride news and its been over 5 months since I completed my ride. The ride will stay with me my whole life with some great memories and lessons learnt. And due to some great work from MPH studios and filming from yours truly, you can now buy the Arctic Ride 2014 film on DVD. It includes a 50 minute film of my trip and some of the experiences I went through along the way as well as some extras including the trailer, full interview with the BBC, and some outtakes. All profits from the DVD go to Cerebra to help brain injured children across the UK. And at £10 surely makes a great Christmas present for any biker or adventurer type folk.

To get a sneak peak of whats to come on the DVD check out the trailer below.

Also since I've been away from blogging I attended the Cerebra children's awards at the Houses of Parliament. My wife Kirsty, and Islay, joined me along with families who have been helped by Cerebra, the charities sponsors, and other Cerebra Ambassadors, Trustees, and employees.

Cerebra Ambassadors

It was great to be involved and to see families who have been helped by the funds that have been raised through my trip to the Arctic.

Thanks again for supporting and reading the blog. There is plenty more to come to fill the long night including; GSX650F review from the trip, Other charity bikers, and Gordon's top Christmas bargains.

Look out for those and ride safe.
