Bikers Join the Game

Share Article

Escape From London is a motoring game of hide and seek using southern England as the playground. Since its launch two weeks ago, the event has received considerable interest from motorbikers and motorbiking groups. In response to unexpected demand, event organisers have agreed that bikers can now enter as Guard teams.

Escape From London, billed as The World's Largest Game of Hide And Seek, has generated much interest since its March 5 launch , especially from motorbikers and motorbike groups.

Motorcyclists were not considered in the original game plan. Sustained interest, however, has won the opportunity to join in the fun.

The object of Escape from London is for Escapee teams to reach two assigned checkpoints without being spotted on film by Guard teams. Successful teams must use routing and observation, skills seemingly lost in the average daily drive in London.

Due to safety aspects, and to make the game fair and uncomplicated as possible, motorbikers can enter as a Guard teams only. This ensures that the motorbike's advantages of speed and agility do not turn the event into a race on public roads. Bikers must also be stationery when collecting pictures during the event, or risk disqualification.

Bikers are allowed to join the game as a roaming Guards, catching site of Escapees, teams in cars. It is a true battle of motoring wits and whiles between bikers and drivers.

Justin Clements, organiser of Escape From London said “We never really thought bikers would be interested in this event when we first set it out. However, the interest we've had from them since we launched has been impressive. As the event is very new - the first of its kind, in fact - we can change the event slightly to allow bikers to compete.”

Clements said “It will be the first true battle between cars and bikes. Who is the superior motorist, the biker or the driver? It's turned into somewhat of an honor type thing. Who will have bragging rights once the dust settles and the points are tallied? You might even consider this to be another first!”
