The IBA Benelux - Mile Eater Award

Mile Eater can most easily be described as "the club within the club".

The Mile Eater Award (MEA) is not a special IBA ride, but the Iron Butt Association's official worldwide recognition for motorcyclists who have successfully completed a certain number of IBA rides.

The Mile Eater Award is now also available for Benelux and existing IBA Germany motorcyclists. It consists of the certificate, a PIN and a patch.

In order to receive the Mile Eater Award, a certain number of normal and extreme rides must be proven (except for the simple MEA).

The Base

All riders who can show a certain number of IBA rides can apply for the award (see table).

All IBA rides count - regardless of the country in which the ride was ridden and by which IBA chapter it was certified.

In order to receive the Mile Eater Award, a certain number of normal and extreme rides must be proven (except for the simple MEA).

Normal rides are:

  • Basically all IBA rides
  • Finisher at the German Butt Rally

Extreme rides are:

  • The Bun Burner GOLD Rides, as well as the SS2000 GOLD
  • Insanity rides (such as the 4 Corners of Germany)
  • All multi-day rides > 48 hours, such as the Saddle Sore 3000 and 5000
  • Finisher at the Iron Butt Rally in the USA.
