The Morocco 1500

Morocco has always drawn adventurers and overlanders to its heart. For Desert Rose, it is a home from home, with Patsy first travelling across it over 25 years ago. Being part of the route of the famous Paris-Dakar rallye of the late 70s and early 80s it is surely on most motorcyclists’ bucket list. For 2024 we have something completely new and we believe quite unique. We have built an event which enables both off road riders and on road riders to experience Morocco at its very best, however you choose to travel through it. With 7 days riding, we will cover some 1500km, starting in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and finishing in Fes, Morocco’s oldest city, having dropped down to Merzouga to see first-hand the majestic dunes and desert vistas. Staying in quality accommodation and having a night under the stars at a desert bivouac this is an event that will make memories to last a lifetime. All in the knowledge that you are riding with the full support of the experienced Desert Rose Team there to back you up.
If you’re riding the off-road route, then we’d generally advise a lighter ‘enduro’ or ‘trail’ type bike, simply because these bikes are more fun, easier to ride and therefore often make the overall experience more enjoyable. However, any bike that is happy being ridden off road, including larger adventure bikes and that you’re happy riding on a variety of surfaces is suitable for the Morocco 1500. If you’re wanting to complete all the sand and dune sections though, we advise sticking to a lighter weight machine. If you’re riding the on-road route, then pretty much any bike is suitable! High speeds aren’t necessary for the roads we will be riding on though, with the majority of Morocco having a 100km/h speed limit, something with a more upright riding position, a bike that lets you take in the sights and that is fun to ride at moderate speeds would be ideal. The condition of the tarmac can vary quite a bit through the 7 days, so much the same advice as for those riding off road, make sure it’s something that you’re comfortable riding in all sorts of conditions. email now for more details and to secure your place on this trip of a lifetime info@desertroseracing.com

Desert Rose & Caofen Electric Dirt Bikes

A new partnership between Desert Rose Riding Academy and Caofen will provide an opportunity for riders to experience what electric off road motorcycles have to offer. Using both the Caofen F80 and Caofen FX riders will be able to put these bikes to the test for a morning or afternoon at one of our East Sussex off road training facilities. Noise pollution is a thing of the past with electric off road motorcycles. With these new models, the lightweight monocoque chassis is made from aircraft-grade Magnarium alloy, providing class leading rigidity increasing safety and enhancing the F80’s off road capability. The technology provides far greater battery stability, improving performance allowing you to ride faster for longer. The operating temperature range of the battery is extended from minus 40 Celsius to plus 60 Celsius and allows for faster more efficient charging.
