About 'Ride of the Ruperts'

The Ride of the Ruperts (RotR) is the most prestigious of motorcycle rides taking place in Sussex each September and is open to everyone who rides, and all makes of bikes.

Our aim is to raise money for worthy causes whilst having fun and keeping overheads to an absolute minimum. We do this through a network of kind volunteers and partners/sponsors.

A small group of dapper chaps loved dressing the part on their bikes. So much so that one decided to organise a small private ride. Of course, that ride never actually happened, as the Ride of the Ruperts grew out of all intended proportions and became what it is today.

Due to popular demand we run a simple but official registration process to enable up to 300 bikes to take part in each of the three major rides. We also keep an active ‘Reserves List’ for eager riders ready to jump in at a moment’s notice should a space become available.

Back in 2018 the RotR committed to raising funds for the Movember Foundation and just shy of £32k was donated to their cause.
Open to all and in support of our partners Whizz-Kidz we are raising funds that empowers young wheelchair users in the UK. Whizz-Kidz, is a fantastic charity that transforms the lives of disabled children by providing vital equipment such as wheelchairs, as well as the support and life skills they need to reach their full potential.

The RotR Sussex Ride

Meeting at the Milk Churn Café, Rudgwick, West Sussex (RH12 3DH), the ride winds it’s way through some of the glorious Sussex countryside, villages and towns with ample opportunity for you to greet surprised and delighted onlookers with a “Tally Ho!” and a cheery wave!

The ride will finish this year with a private party, food and live music at the prestigious Gun Hill Studios just off the A22 at Holmes Hill.
You MUST be registered to take part in this event. Any unregistered riders will be politely turned away at the gate for legitimate safety reasons.
We seriously advise early registration as available places tend to go very quickly.

What does the future hold for the RotR?

Well, we’re always keen to speak to potential partners and sponsors to see how we can work well together. It works out great for our current ones!

We’re also always happy to talk if you feel you have what it takes to host one of our rides in another location for bikers to enjoy. If you think the RotR is something you might want to get involved in then please contact us.
