Patsy Quick Quizzed at The BikeShed

Patsy and the Desert Rose team were invited to the Members’ Christmas Party at The BikeShed in Shoreditch. The evening included a live hook up with Vikki and Dutch out in LA, giving members a glimpse into the opening plans for this next exciting chapter in BikeShed history. Having worked with the BSMC team throughout 2021 on running their ever popular scrambles, hosting them on one of our courses and planning future adventures further afield, it was great for the Desert Rose Team to have the chance to get to know a few more of the members and talk all things dirt bike and rallye.
We were able to share a showreel of Desert Rose which included some archive footage of Patsy’s Dakar adventures, along with more recent rally experiences, Red Bull Romaniacs, Africa Eco Race and some footage from recent courses at the Academy. With Charley Boorman as compere and both Billy Ward and Nathan Millward joining Patsy in a live QA session, the BikeShed members got a flavour of the incredible adventures these motorcyclists have enjoyed and endured. Desert Rose had 2 bikes on display, a brand spanking new Beta 480 4T as used at the Academy and a rally prepped bike, complete with road book and a slight dusting of sand from the Sahara.

Stage 1 in Autumn Sunshine

Who would have thought we would have to search out some shade in Mid September. Our popular Stage 1 course saw a dozen riders join us in the Autumn Sunshine down in East Sussex. Working through the foundations of off road riding techniques we covered bike handling, body positioning, braking techniques and we tackled ascents and descents. Everyone threw themselves at the exercises enthusiastically and there were smiles all round.

Ladies Day in the Sunshine!

Early September saw a small group join us on a ladies only day, for a day of off road riding at our East Sussex venue. We were lucky enough to have some sunshine and even had to seek the shade of the trees for a while. With the coaching based on our Stage 1 syllabus, the ladies had to get to grips with body positioning and bike handling techniques, learnt the importance of clutch control, tackled braking exercises, took on a couple of hills and of course some dreaded ruts. As the group were progressing so well, we even threw in some on bike yoga, helping them improve their balance and bike handling. The girls all rose the challenges we posed and came away more confident riders.

Midweek Enduro Practice Sessions

As the summer draws to an end we have put on a few midweek, afternoon/evening enduro practice sessions. With an all new 2 1/2 mile lap, taking in some tight single track and faster flowing twisty sections through the fields, along with 2 or 3 “special sections” there was something to challenge everyone.
