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.
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 workshopsThese 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 EntertainmentGuest 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.
- There were a number of industry regulars supporting this first time event, including:
- Moto Freight - us of course!
- Bikers FM
- Black Desert
- Adventure Medical
- Overland Magazine
- ...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:
