Between the 22nd and 25th June, riders will embark from the UK on a route through four countries to reach the second highest pass in the Alps - the Stelvio Pass in Italy.

Voted the "Best driving road in the world" by Top Gear, the Stelvio Pass has no fewer than 48 hairpin bends, reaches an ear-popping 2,757 meters and provides breath-taking Alpine views all the way. Renowned to the point that Moto Guzzi even sells a Stelvio model, this road really is unrivalled.

The entry fee for this remarkable event is just £475 per bike and covers accommodation for two people (sharing), ferry crossings, breakfast and evening meals. No minimum sponsorship is required but BEN anticipates entrants will want to raise as much money as possible to enable the charity to help maintain its amazing support for thousands of automotive industry employees and their dependents annually.

Kelly Neal, Events and Exhibitions Manager at BEN said: "This is a truly unique riding challenge which will not just be a fantastic personal experience for everyone involved but a gratifying way to raise funds for BEN, enabling us to offer help and advice to industry colleagues in times of need.

BEN really does make a difference to the welfare of so many people."
