Contacting IBA UK

IBA UK is run by several volunteers, all members of the Iron Butt Association. As such we don't have "office hours" (or even offices) so email is the way to go. Please choose a recipient from the list below.

  • IBA UK President - Philip "FazerPhil" Weston IBA #432

    My first bike was a 1960s Vespa. I became a born again biker in 2000 when I bought a 600 Suzuki Bandit before moving onto the Yamaha Fazer 1000. In 2005 I completed my first ride out of the UK completing a SS1000 to Budapest. In 2008 I was a finisher in the Brit Butt Rally and am the only rider to have completed a BBG3000 in the UK. Completed rides in UK, Europe and the USA culminating in finishing IBR2011 on a Fazer 1000 on my first bike ride in the USA.

  • IBA UK Ride Verifications - Mike "Skarthi" Topham IBA #28691

    My first real 'bike was a Triumph Tiger cub which I rebuilt from boxes of bits in 1973, but I didn't start serious motorcycling until 1998. I've owned mainly BMWs on which I've toured extensively in Europe and Canada / USA.

    I did my first Iron Butt rides back in 2007. I spent most of my working life as a full-time teacher and part-time motorcycle instructor. Now happily retired from both, I spend my time on the important things in life!

  • Ride to Eat Co-Ordinator - Debi "ArsenalDeb" Devine IBA #51218

    Biker babe and cake baking goddess! Have been riding bikes for over 20 years and currently own Suzuki SV650 Sport but would like to go over to the dark side and own a BMW (for comfort more than street cred!)

    So far I have completed my SS1000, attempted BBR10 but unfortunately was a DNF but successfully became the first female rider to complete a Brit Butt Rally in 2011.

    Looking forward to the new year with a view to doing more rides.

    To contact Debi email:

  • Brit Butt Rally Master - Steve Eversfield IBA #169

    Steve is a veteran of three Iron Butt Rallies in 1999, 2001, 2003 (he finished 11th in 2001)

    He has also competed in several UK rallies including the Brit Butt Rally.

  • Chief Technical Inspector & BBL RM - Rick "Rick, UK" Allies IBA #4001

    Started my biking career in 1991, and my first bike after passing my test was a Suzuki GSX250 - whatever could go wrong with it, did! But when it was running we certainly covered some miles! After a year on a GPZ500, in 1994 I moved up to a CBR600 - which is still in my hands and running today. Finally, in 1997 I bought the Blackbird, which I also still own.

    In 1998 I completed my first SS1000 - the second documented one in the UK! I've also completed SS1K and BB1500 rides in the UK and Europe.

    Since 2008 I have been Technical Inspector for IBA UK, and have been involved in the organisation and running of all the Brit Butt Rallies since then. In 2012 I became Rallymaster for the Brit Butt Light Rally.

    To contact Rick email:

  • Iceni Rally Master - Mark "FJRPilot" Fowler IBA #40047

    Been riding for 30 years. I've not had many bikes but I tend to keep them and ride them. My last bike was an FJR1300 and I rode over 70,000 on it.

    I became an IBA member in 2009 and have been hooked ever since. I run the 8 hour novice Iceni Rally in September and also overhauled the RBLR1000 routes in 2016.

    To contact Mark email:

  • IBA UK Shop - John "JON12A" Cunniffe IBA #57672

    I ride a BMW R1200 GSA and I ride quite long distances.

    I also have a garage full of IBA UK Merchandise just waiting to be sent to you! See the Shop on this site.

    To contact John email:

  • Webmaster - Bob "saphena" Stammers IBA #51220

    Started riding late in life by buying a Honda CG125 unseen on eBay, fixing 'L' plates and riding 90 miles home in the rain.

    Having passed my test I bought a Triumph Bonneville and was introduced to long distance riding in the National Road Rally when I rode a total of 720 miles in exactly 24 hours. I finally completed an SS1000 in 2010 and a BB1500 in 2013. I also came last in BBR12.
