One of the earliest forms of motor sport with competitions dating as far as far as the the turn of the last century. They were tests of reliability and endurance for both machine and rider or driver. Imagine riding a motorcycle, running on solid tyres, and with acetylene lamps, from London to Edinburgh and back in twenty-four hours. Very few, if any, of the roads were tarmac, and there was scarcely a garage to be found.
As roads and vehicles improved, the challenge lessened and so today's events have tests such as climbing steep or slippery hills away from the main roads to maintain the challenge.
