What is the dirty weekend? Chances are you have heard about this from a friend (or a friend of a friend!) TDW is the most relaxed and chilled out ‘low key’ weekend dirtbike event in the UK! Its all about relaxing, having a weekend away and riding your bike, it doesnt matter if you know anyone or not, you will be made welcome from start to finish and by the time you get home on Sunday night, you will have a dozen new friend requests on facebook!
Our weekends are all about having fun, it doesn’t matter how slow or fast you are, all standards of riders come to the events and there really is something for every kind of rider. If you are fresh to off-road or even new to bikes in general this is the perfect event for you, because we don’t run sessions you can come and go as you please and the tracks we select have the variety to build you confidence without feeling rushed. Conversely, if you are already a handy rider, no other practice event will allow you more bike time and because we limit the total number of riders there is rarely any congestion on the track.
Of course, a weekend event is not all just about the riding, it is also about getting out of the house for a weekend, having fun with old friends and making some new ones! It is like a weekend race meeting without the tension that comes with actually racing, get set up, have a few beers and talk about your favourite topic… dirt bikes, naturally. We put on a big BBQ and there is always something fun going on, the weekend is all about having fun and riding your bike!
The dirty weekend isn’t a business, we do it because we love dirt bikes, we do it for fun and we do it to meet up with real people! I can tell you how good it is until I’m blue in the face but why not take a look at our busy Facebook page where you can get a feel of what the weekends are all about, don’t be afraid to ask questions, there will always be someone along to answer them!
Absolutely all bikes and riders are welcome, Enduro, motocross, green lane or trials bikes, all are good! It really doesn’t matter what standard you are, a lot of people have never ridden on MX type tracks but everyone will make you feel at home and you will no doubt go away more confident!
Families and friends are welcome to come and spectate. Camping over is optional but highly recommended! Camping is also available on the Friday night as well to help those traveling from further afield. Staying over is all part of the fun, share a beer, burger and some banter! The camping/BBQ fee covers camping for both Friday and Saturday night.
