Guy's Big Brew (and new lid)
Guy Martin's Big Brew
Road racing legend Guy Martin wants us all to have a ‘proper mug of tea’ at participating venues over the Bank Holiday weekend of 4th-7th May 2012, in support of the charity Spinal Research.
All around the UK kettles will be boiling, tea will be brewed and fundraising activities will be underway. A number of partners have signed up so far, from motorcycle dealerships and Hein Gericke stores, to biker cafes, motorcycle owners’ clubs, IAM and individual riders, all with a view to raising money and giving something back.
Show and grow
To make this year’s event even more fun you can enter a ‘grow your own sideburns’ competition. Male Guy Martin fans might decide to ‘grow their own’ or sponsor a friend, while the girls might decide to design jewelled or painted sideburns, so they can take part too. The winner of the best sideburns as judged by Guy will win a Focused Events track day on the full Moto GP Silverstone circuit at any of their 2012 events.
Visit your local participating dealership or Hein Gericke store during the Big Brew weekend, to have your photograph taken with your best ‘mutton chops’ and be entered into the competition.
You can also tweet your side burn growth images to @TheBigBrew or share their evolution on Facebook (search 'Ride Out for Spinal Research') to give your facial hair the recognition it deserves!
