Owner Dan has done an incredible job of creating a venue perfectly suited to off road motorcycle adventures and as a result has attracted visitors from all over the UK and even Europe to use it as a base to discover the incredible diversity of riding the region has to offer.
The campsite and bunk house are managed and kept pristine with incredible attention to detail and a lot of hard work! With terraced sites offering stunning views across the valley, you can really appreciate the effort that’s gone into making this a very special venue for those who like to get out into nature and off the beaten track!
The bunkhouse also offers newly fitted toilets and showers and a communal kitchen for morning tea and coffee 😉

Will my new bike be OK as I don’t want to damage it?
We would consider the tracks and back roads we use to be perfect for the “Big” adventure bikes that are able to cover distance and handle light off road. The courses are designed for minimal damage to your bike. Of course we cannot guarantee everything as it is a bit of an adventure after all. We will be sure to notify you if a particular route is especially challenging and if you would be better off on off road biased tyres.
Is my bike suitable?
Our routes are tailored for adventure bikes, as often there are long distances covered and the off road sections aren’t too technical. Some of our more ‘extreme’ events can be ridden on smaller enduro and trail bikes, but overall our aim is to provide riders of big bikes a places to ride and experience what their adventure bikes are really capable of and actually made for! There are many places available for enduro riders in the UK, however routes suitable for taking big bikes off road are less common, hence why we aim to provide for this realm of riders.
Do I need to bring fuel?
No. Definitely not, the route passes commercial fuel stations and you should refuel here. Maximum distance between fuel stops is 80-100 km (50 – 60 miles). Just make sure you are fully fuelled at the start.
Do I need my own roadbook equipment?
No, RallyMoto provide an “adventure roadbook holder” to each rider. This has to returned after the event.
Do I need an accurate trip?
Yes, at this adventure level of riding we use an app on a Smart phone which is very good and it attached to the supplied roadbook holder.
