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.

That’s a Wrap

Wow, wow, wow. What a year it’s been. From keeping warm round the fire pit in early January and Patsy’s warm up drill running across the fields, to the heat of the desert in Morocco in November. We have been lucky enough to see 100s of riders come through the Academy this year, we have become a BikeShed accredited partner, we have attended Camp VC for the first time, the Malle Mile and BikeShed show, we have spent the weekend at the ABR festival, taken groups of riders through trails in the western Algarve, we have hosted the Met Police BikeSafe Team, the Kent Fire and Rescue Service Biker Down Team, the Malle Marshals and we have helped the BSMC Rallye Team realise their dream and take part in their first rallye, over in Greece. We have partnered with the team at Sinnis to create an off road training school for learner and newer riders. We have seen riders attend our courses from ROSPA and IAM advanced rider groups as well as corporate days out for different companies.

Desert Rose Back in the Desert

After a long enforced wait, Desert Rose are finally back in the desert. It could be said that it is our spiritual home, with miles and miles of open flowing desert piste and sand dunes stretching as far as the eye can see it is the perfect location for our desert boot camps. We were lucky enough to be able to call on the experience of “Zippy” who many believe lives out here in the desert, along with Harry, to provide the important insights into tackling deep sand, sharp seemingly limitless and practically sheer faces of the bigger dunes.

Malle Marshals Join us for a Day

Earlier this year the Desert Rose team took our training Academy to the Malle Mile, in the beautiful grounds of Grimsthorpe Castle. The weekend was one full of motorcycles, racing, glamping, motorcycle related art work, music and good vibes. The dedicated team of Marshals work hard in the run up to the event and all weekend to make sure riders and their guests have the best experience. Well this weekend it was the turn of the Malle Marshals to hang up their overalls for the day and get some off road riding under their belts. Using our late model fleet of Beta Enduro bikes the Marshals were put through their paces. Tackling some tight, single track routes through the trees and a couple of gentle hill ascents and descents.
