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

At Desert Rose our passion is helping riders get the most from their off road riding. Whether they are completely new to riding, have been riding for years, but need some more confidence when heading off the beaten track or are looking to improve their enduro results, our instruction and coaching programmes are designed to help. We run our progressive training courses throughout the year and are also able to offer 1 to 1 and small group sessions so that riders get the most from their time with us. We run coaching sessions on trips out in Portugal, on the western Algarve and our ever popular “Boot Camps” out in Morocco, aimed at preparing riders for longer overland trips or competitive rallyes.

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.
