The Yer Tiz Motorcycle Rally is the brainchild of Rich Long and was set up in 2010 for the first event to run in 2011. The aim was to make new friends, catch up with old ones, and have a great time with any profits made being donated to biker related organisations.
In total, more than £10,000 has been raised for the groups.
Rich approached the North Tawton Rugby Club, located between Crediton and Okehampton, as the likely venue. The location has good access from Exeter and Cornwall via the A30. The rugby club agreed and their grounds, clubhouse, bar and kitchen were used throughout the weekend. The bar was drunk dry on the first night!
The first rally raised £4,000 and was deemed a huge success by all those involved and visitors alike.
In 2012, the rally was expanded to include; more bands, bike show categories, and a wider range of food and real ales and barbecue.
In 2013, a new marquee complete with bandstand and lighting was hired to enhance the visitor experience, there were now four bands and revised catering.
Each year the rally holds a free-to-enter bike show which now carries 10 categories and a ride-out with a different route each year on Saturday.
