"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.

Do you want to watch my Butt?

Greetings from The Arctic Rider,

Its now 5 months since I completed my Iron Butt challenge raising over £1,600 for The Tiny Lives Trust. Again, massive thanks to all of those who donated! My charity motorbike adventures would be nothing without you all, I'm just the middleman.

Its taken me a while but I've finally completed my video editing of the Iron Butt ride. Its now available to watch on The Arctic Rider YouTube channel and in the below link.

Its a 9 minute video so make sure you grab yourself a cuppa and biscuit to buckle down for the ride.

I'm also creating a shorter 2 minute version which will become a permanent feature on the main page of The Arctic Rider website / blog.

As its winter and I've been doing less riding I'm using my time to do more video editing, including creating a 2 minute clip of my Arctic Ride 2014. Watch out for that in 2017.

Even though I've been bad at keeping everyone up to date with my blog, my Facebook and Twitter accounts have been active with my continued work. If you want to follow me at any of social media accounts you can do so at the following links:

Highlights since my last blog include:

Sept 16: Completing the Great North Run with Mrs Arctic Ride raising money for Tiny Lives

Oct 16: Attending The House Lords Reception representing Cerebra in  my role as Ambassador


That is all for this edition folks. Keep an eye out in the new year for more videos from my rides and plans for my next adventure which I will announcing in due course.

Ride safe and have a very Merry Christmas.

Peace out.
