What's on at the Adventure Bike Rider Festival 2019?

TOMTOM RIDER
LITTLE LONDON ENDURO TRACK

While we live by the mantra that adventures can be on or off road, festival-goers who want to try out their bikes on rougher terrain will have free access to the TomTom Rider Little London Enduro Park on Saturday 13th July.

There will be no racing on the two courses, with the main focus being on letting you master your riding skills. So, even if it’s your first time on an enduro course, it will be the perfect opportunity to enjoy riding off-road in a relaxed environment.

Adventure Bike Rider Festival 2019

TEST RIDE
THE LATEST ADVENTURE BIKES

Perhaps your most difficult decision at the Adventure Bike Rider Festival will be deciding which shiny new adventure bike to test ride next. The world’s major motorcycle manufacturers will be bringing their test fleets for you to try out throughout the weekend. These include Ducati, BMW, KTM, Triumph, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Royal Enfield, Yamaha and Benelli.

Test rides will be road and off-road based depending on the manufacturer, so you'll have plenty to get stuck into. We’re certain you’re going to feel like a kid in a candy store. We know we will.

GREEN LANE RIDEOUTS WITH THE TRF

There's plenty of fun to be had in the festival grounds throughout the weekend, but it wouldn’t be a proper Adventure Bike Rider Festival without rideouts.

The festival’s location on the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty means you’re in for a real treat. Think rolling hills, woodlands, grasslands and thatched medieval villages. But best of all, the area is riddled with brilliant roads to ride and plenty of green lanes. These rideouts will be led by the Trail Finders Fellowship (TRF) so you know you’re in capable hands.

BRIDGESTONE ADVENTURE TRAIL

We’re certain some of you are going to want to play in the dirt over the weekend, so we’ve created the four-mile Bridgestone Adventure Trail in the spectacular forests of Ragley Hall.

It’s been designed to be suitable and fun for riders of all abilities, whether you’re venturing off-road for the first time, or you’re a seasoned greenlaner. For the less experienced, there will be marshals on hand to help out if you drop your bike or you need a bit of support getting around the course. We’re know you’re going to love taking part. How often in life do you get the chance to ride a motorbike the forests of a magnificent country estate?

BRIDGESTONE BAR

Is there anything better than sitting back and relaxing with a cold beer on a summer’s evening after brilliant day of biking with new and old friends? The Bridgestone Bar will serve ice-cold draught beer and cider in relaxed surroundings so you can swap stories from the road, talk bikes and have a thoroughly good time.

REV'IT! STAGE & MARQUEE

What’s a summer festival without live music? Each evening until 11pm we’ll be hosting bands to entertain you while you eat, drink and share stories with fellow festival goers.


Whether you want to listen and relax as the sun goes down, or party the evening away, there’ll be plenty of entertainment to make it an unforgettable weekend.
