BikeGammon is a backgammon tournament played in a series of venues over one weekend. The mode of travel between the venues is motorbike.
To be eligible to enter, you must be able to play backgammon and travel by motorbike.
When: Thursday 19th April - Monday 23rd April 2018*
Where: Southern England
We'll meet on the south coast - within an hour or so of London - and play the first round of matches there.
We'll travel on carefully selected, biking-friendly roads, never overreaching ourselves in terms of distance, and play subsequent matches on the evenings of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The backgammon will be organised by Dicky Biddle of North London Backgammon renown. The rest will be organised by me - Simon Hopper.
The winner will hold the Magnificent BikeGammon trophy for one year.
