Portuguese Road Book Experience

Desert Rose Riding Academy hosted a Road Book Experience for some of our rallye customers on a recent trip to the Western Algarve. This part of Portugal offers miles and miles of off road trails, tracks, fire roads, single track and steep ascents and descents. The weather was an improvement on the UK and while the factor 50 wasn’t needed there was no need for heated jackets and wet weather gear either.
The routes were designed to give riders the opportunity to practice their way finding, tackle various types of terrain and hone their riding for upcoming rallyes. Each day’s riding consisted of a 40 KM or so liaison stage with then between 180K and 220K loop, although a couple of riders managed unintentionally to cover far more. The hotel accommodation was 4 star, with spa, bar and restaurant, suffice to say Desert Rose will be back. To hear about future trips to Portugal and further afield be sure to sign up to our newsletter.

A Crisp Start

The start of January brings a crisp start to the riding season for us at Desert Rose Riding Academy. It’s not long though before riders are warmed up after a welcome brew round the fire pit and a few body positioning exercises, who needs heated clothing. Our private training venues provide the variety of terrain we need to help riders get the most out of the day. You can choose to use your own bike, or make use of one of our late model Beta enduro bikes.

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.
