The Scotia Challenge is a riding season long event, open to SCMC Club Members only, and has been in operation since 2005. The challenging task is to visit, on your classic motorcycle, a series of up to 45 checkpoints, spread throughout the length and breadth of Scotland. Points are awarded for each checkpoint secured, verified by a photograph of bike and checkpoint, and trophies are awarded based on the number of checkpoints achieved. Awards have become progressively more challenging, and for 2020, the coveted Platinum award, introduced during the 2019 season, will be awarded only to those who complete all 45 checkpoints on a motorcycle (or motorcycles) of at least 40 years old. Gold, silver and bronze awards are available for fewer checkpoints and/or more modern machines. As a means of encouraging members to get out and use their bikes, the Scotia Challenge has been a resounding success, and it's worthwhile joining the SCMC for that alone!

Note: 2020 checkpoints will be released only to paid-up entrants. Previous checkpoints included only as an example, so don't go out and complete last year's challenge!
