All around the UK kettles will be boiling, tea will be brewed and fundraising activities will be underway.
A number of partners have signed up so far, from motorcycle dealerships and Hein Gericke stores, to biker cafes, motorcycle owners’ clubs, IAM and individual riders, all with a view to raising money and giving something back.
Spinal Research has a dedicated campaign specifically for motorcyclists called Ride Out and The Big Brew is one of the key events in their biking calendar.
Riding a motorbike is an exhilarating experience and there’s little to compare to the excitement, adrenalin and freedom of being on two wheels.
But things can and do go wrong and The Big Brew is a fun way to make a donation to the charity, which aims to restore movement and feeling to people who are paralysed and ultimately get them back on their motorcycles.
After Guy’s accident during the 2010 Isle of Man TT, he realised just how lucky he was to make a full recovery. He decided to combine his love of tea with motorbikes and the inaugural Big Brew in 2011 was a great success.
“I’m putting my support and tea drinking enthusiasm behind The Big Brew and want to ask motorcyclists to get involved and do the same.
I was lucky that I wasn’t paralysed when I broke the vertebrae in my back at the Isle of Man TT in 2010, but not every rider is as fortunate as me.
Taking part in The Big Brew can make all the difference to people living with paralysis.” Guy Martin, Ride Out for Spinal Research Supporter
Show and Grow
To make this year’s event even more fun you can enter a ‘grow your own sideburns’ competition.
Male Guy Martin fans might decide to ‘grow their own’ or sponsor a friend, while the girls might decide to design jewelled or painted sideburns, so they can take part too. The winner of the best sideburns as judged by Guy will win a Focused Events track day on the full Moto GP Silverstone circuit at any of their 2012 events.
Visit your local participating dealership or Hein Gericke store – for Northern Ireland check out HERE (Hein Gericke in Belfast are listed) during the Big Brew weekend, to have your photograph taken with your best ‘mutton chops’ and be entered into the competition. You can also tweet your side burn growth images to TheBigBrew or share their evolution on Facebook to give your facial hair the recognition it deserves!
While you are in-store remember to enter the FREE prize draw for you and a friend to meet Guy at a race meeting later in the year.
Big Brew Events
Don’t forget, anyone can arrange an event, large or small, every donation helps fund ground breaking research to help people who have been paralysed by spinal cord injury. There will be a prize for the two people who raise the most money to meet Guy at a race event later this year. So get the kettle on and get involved.

It’s an exciting time for Spinal Research as they stand on the brink of clinical trials that will transform the lives of people living with paralysis, improving sensation, movement and their quality of life. But to do this they need your support.
