Thank you very much for a great day. Patsy is an excellent tutor who can show as well as teach. All the group were very happy with the days training. I can’t wait to get some time in Morocco with this team 🙂

Philip Hutchinson, Stage 1 Group Session

Thank you for a superb training day. We had a “2-2-1” session with Harry – first class instruction, great tracks and quality bikes. Highly recommended to anybody wishing to improve their off road skills. Hope to be back soon !

The Morocco 1500

Morocco has always drawn adventurers and overlanders to its heart. For Desert Rose, it is a home from home, with Patsy first travelling across it over 25 years ago. Being part of the route of the famous Paris-Dakar rallye of the late 70s and early 80s it is surely on most motorcyclists’ bucket list. For 2024 we have something completely new and we believe quite unique. We have built an event which enables both off road riders and on road riders to experience Morocco at its very best, however you choose to travel through it. With 7 days riding, we will cover some 1500km, starting in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and finishing in Fes, Morocco’s oldest city, having dropped down to Merzouga to see first-hand the majestic dunes and desert vistas. Staying in quality accommodation and having a night under the stars at a desert bivouac this is an event that will make memories to last a lifetime. All in the knowledge that you are riding with the full support of the experienced Desert Rose Team there to back you up.

2 Para Join Desert Rose

As part of the ongoing feasibility review of the British Army’s potential use of motorcycles in an operational capacity, Desert Rose Off Riding Academy were delighted to host a cohort of future riders and instructors from the 2nd Battalion The Parachute Regiment. It has been over a decade since motorcycles were used to any large extent by the British Military but clearly their light weight, manoeuvrability, single track footprint and ease of deployment has huge operational benefits. With the advances being made in electric motorcycles, it seems obvious that their use should be considered. Desert Rose were chosen as the training partner for the Paras due to our experience in both taking part in and supporting some of the toughest rallies in the world, along with our established training credentials.

Morocco 2023 Back in the Dunes

The team at Desert Rose just love Morocco. The sun, the temperature, the people, the food and of course the riding. Mile after mile of open flowing desert piste, the sand dunes of Ouzina and Merzouga, with the 600 metre plus Cathedral dune being our absolute favourite.
