When the going (ride) gets tough, the tough get going (riding), and what better way to demonstrate this than riding beyond Nigeria’s borders.
The International Rider Tour is open to riders interested in cross border moto touring.
This is the only event that is certified after the tour.
Once you have successfully certified your ride, you will receive a Tough Tourer patch and sticker, Balaclava, an International Rider Tour Pin, and patches of the countries visited.
You will be required to check-in using the TT App, provide evidence of border crossings (entry/exit stamp in your international passport), copies of the bike’s international documents along with pictures of you and your bike in the countries you have visited (The pictures should show landmarks or signposts to corroborate your claim 😉)
Certification costs N15,000.00 along with the added cost of 2,000.00 per country patch as required.
The International Riders Tour is the only Tour that can be certified 5 years (2013 onwards) in retrospect, provided all required documents are submitted.
