The Arctic Rider is an ongoing project of charity motorbike challenges by fundraiser Gordon Stuart.

"The Arctic Rider is all about a burning sense to do what is right, adventure, community, and raising a shed-load of cash for charity. Yes my challenges cost money to do, and sure I do enjoy them, but being able to combine my passion for motorbikes with raising money for charity its win win for me. My social media work and networking ensure that my adventures raise far more money than they cost meaning every penny donated goes to my charities" - Gordon Stuart
For his 'Arctic Ride 2014' challenge sponsors funded 50% of his costs to do the trip but for this year's Iron Butt Challenge Gordon is taking a different approach.
Gordon said "The costs of my Iron Butt are relatively small compared to my Arctic challenge in 2014, but I had such success attracting sponsors and the feedback from them was great, I still wanted to offer companies the opportunity to sponsor but with their sponsorship money going straight to Tiny Lives Trust."
Gordon is offering companies the chance to have their logo on The Arctic Rider motorbike, website, film, and in press coverage in exchange for £100 donated to Tiny Lives Trust via Gordon's Virgin Money Giving page.
In 2014 The Arctic Rider gained media coverage on BBC radio, The Evening Chronicle, Local radio, worldwide motorcycle media and more (click here to see more), had 60,000 views on his blog, in addition to a large social media span with over 1,900 followers on Twitter.
For his Iron Butt challenge 2016, Gordon has already gained support from Suzuki, and Devitt Insurance.
