Adventure Bike Festival 2013

July: Adventure Bike Festival

The first ever Adventure Bike Festival was a resounding success, with an emphasis on fun enduro events and a selection of road and off-road courses to keep even the keenest rider entertained all weekend.

Weekend Events

  • Enduro track carnage!

    With individual sprint races, blind-folded relay races (that's right, blind-folded) and a "how many riders can you fit on a moving motorcycle" challenge, competitors and spectators alike had an amazing time.
  • Weekend workshops

    These were free to all guests, and offered the perfect opportunity to learn how to correctly change a tyre, set up basic suspension and what to include in your essential trail toolkit.
  • Evening Entertainment

    Guest speakers on the Friday and Saturday nights included the world renowned Austin Vince (explorer, writer, public speaker and all-around entertainer) and Nathan Millward (author of "The Long Ride Home"), both of whom delivered hilarious anecdotes and stories that kept the audience delighted for hours.

Tradeshow

  • There were a number of industry regulars supporting this first time event, including:
  • Moto Freight - us of course!
  • Bikers FM
  • Touratech
  • Black Desert
  • Adventure Medical
  • Overland Magazine
  • Continental
  • ...and lots of others!

 

We had a blast at this event, and can heartily recommend it to bikers of all interests - check out the website for the 2014 weekend of adventure-fuelled fun:
