2015 H.O.G® Chapter Challenge

The Chapter Challenge, for those of you who have not heard of the challenge, quite simply, it is a national competition run by the Harley-Davidson® Owners Group (H.O.G®) to see which individual and chapter can accumulate the most amount of miles during a given timeframe.

Our dealership chapters; Fenlanders, Hogsback & Iceni have many members covering many thousands of miles per year, and we would like to make a big effort to get as many of our members enrolled in the Chapter Challenge as possible to give the rest of the UK chapters a run for their money!

For 2015 we will be holding an all-day kick-off event in Guildford, Newmarket & Norwich on Saturday 28th February (there will be some nibbles and drinks throughout the day) so pop the date in your diary, and simply pop down on your bike with your H.O.G® number and one of the team will do the rest for you.

Don’t worry if the weather is bad, you can turn up at the shop on your bike any time during March, but do try and pop in on the 28th if the weather is good as we will have the provisional 2015 ride schedule on display in the shop.

Besides being a great challenge and having the chance to win the dealership Highest Mileage Award, there are National & Individual awards & prizes too, these are given in the following categories:

Chapter Categories:

  • Greatest Number of Miles Accumulated
  • Greatest Number of Participants
  • Greatest Average Number of Miles Travelled per Participant Top Ten Award – Chapter with highest top ten mileage riders


  • Greatest Number of Miles Accumulated by an Individual (will also receive a £100 voucher from HOG UK)

Chapter Challenge Photo Opportunity – In addition to the mileage, we can also gain additional points by taking an amusing photo with at least five chapter members displaying our patches at one of the eight flag events including: The East of England Rally, The Cider Rally, Ireland Bikefest, Wake the Lakes, SOFER, Thunder in the Glens and Blazin’ Twenties. Plus, the eighth event is a “wild card” and can be chosen by the chapter, more news on our nominated wild card very soon!

Finally, New for 2015, H.O.G® UK are to allow all mileage covered since the end of the 2014 challenge to count towards the 2015 challenge, so, if you have you end form from 2014.
