Desert Rose Become a BikeShed Approved Partner

Desert Rose are delighted to have become a BikeShed Approved Partner. Since 2011, the Bike Shed has been a place of common ground, where people from all walks of life come together to share their passion for two-wheels, whether they ride a motorcycle or not. BikeShed offers their community an escape from the shallow, virtual, digital world into a space offering an authentic analogue experience, centred around motorcycle culture. Visitors leave their differences at the door to enjoy an inclusive, welcoming space, whoever they are and wherever they come from. In 2022 BikeShed launched their LA operation
Desert Rose started working with the BikeShed team in 2020, putting on BikeShed Scrambles down at our East Sussex off road venues. The scrambles became more and more popular. BikeShed Memebership Supremo, Dan and BikeShed Camerman Dan joined us on a day of off road training back in August and fair to say had a blast. We were then invited to the BikeShed Christmas Party where Patsy took centre stage with Charley Boorman, Billy Ward and Nathan Milward. In January this year, Patsy, along with Joe and Harry were back at the BikeShed talking to members about rallye life, the different type of events, from raids to full on competitive road books rallies. 3 BikeShed members threw themselves headlong into the rallye world by entering Hellas in Greece, with Desert Rose Racing support. News of their experience can be found here. A further group of a dozen BikeShed members, including Membership Dan, signed up for their first rallye, entering the Greek Odyssey scheduled for late September this year. Having committed to the rallye, bike training days, fitness sessions and bike prep are in full swing. The rallye evaluation days really did bring the best out in the team. Desert Rose are proud to be a part of the BikeShed community and look forward to developing this partnership and welcoming some of the LA members on future events.

I started the day trying to avoid obstacles, I ended it looking for them.

Desert Rose Join Camp VC 2022

Camp VC is a women’s motorcycle festival, which for 2022 was run at the Sweet Lamb Rally Complex in Wales. The weekend offered a multitude of activities for attendees, from welding and mechanics lessons, through to experiencing a rally car lap of a rally course. Desert Rose were invited to bring our enduro motorcycles along, so that we could give beginners lessons for riders who wanted to venture off road and maybe get involved in trail riding, or even their first enduro event. Patsy made sure the support lorry was fully loaded and the team made their way from East Sussex to the stunning hills of Wales. Arriving to set up on Thursday, we were met by unusual weather for Wales, it was dry and sunny and this continued on into Friday. With Saturday and Sunday, normal service resumed as far as Welsh weather is concerned and there was a combination of mist, drizzle and horizontal rain.

Desert Rose at Malle Mile 2022

Once again Desert Rose were invited to join the weekend motorcycle festival like no other. Up at Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire the 2022 edition of the Malle Mile was run, with upwards of 1000 motorcycles. Billed as the most inappropriate motorcycle race & festival in the country, the Malle Mile is a celebration of the motorcycle in all its forms. Racing taking the form of a sprint, a hill climb, a dash and the Malle 100 the engines roared and dust was flying. Having said that, some engines didn’t roar as there were plenty of electric motorcycles whizzing and whirring across the finish line.
