About this Event

Ever wonder if you've got what it takes to do the Dakar? Wish you could get into off-road competitions, but have no idea how to start?

Now is your chance.

This year we will hold the first OpenRoads Rally – an affordable adventure rally for beginners and amateur riders.

Challenge yourself, meet friends for life and learn loads about adventure rally riding.

Purchase your tickets on here or through Facebook ✌️

Here is how it works

Friday night

  • Event briefing and opening ceremony
  • Road book training workshop. Learn what a road book is, and how to use it
  • Special guest presentation: First Aid – not your average info, taught by a specialised army medic – you do not want to miss this!
  • Registration and scrutineering opens 4-8pm
  • Bonfire and good chats

Saturday

  • Checkpoint Challenge. Navigate your way to checkpoints in the bush using our digital road book (expensive equipment not required). Stamp your OpenRoads passport and sticker at each checkpoint. Each checkpoint you miss will deduct points. Checkpoints are allocated points, depending on their difficulty. You will accumulate individual points and secret group points. This means you can let down both yourself and other people – hooray! More details on the road book setup coming soon.
  • Free hot lunch. One hour mandatory check-in stop on-route. Here you can re-hydrate, re-fuel, use the toilet, fix your bike or as ask medic. Your check in and check out times will be recorded and you will be disqualified if you miss this stop.
  • Rider training and beginners course - get yourself comfortable and join our checkpoint challenge when you're ready
  • Return to base and participate in silly games for extra points
  • Debrief and meet your secret group
  • Presentations, live music, stalls

Sunday

  • Activities (beginners enduro course/ challenge TBC!)
  • Stalls
  • Prizes and closing ceremony
