This year’s Motorcycle Off-Road Experience (MORE) will be held over four days between Tuesday 7th July and Friday 10th July at Upavon in Wiltshire. It’s aimed at the beginner rather than seasoned MX star but it’s a fantastic introduction to off-road sport. 2commute will be there and if you get up early and register at 10am this Saturday you could be there as well
This will be the fourth year a ‘try out’ festival has been held, which allows people to try off-road riding for the first time.
The price, which is heavily subsidised by the group behind MORE, will be £30. This includes hire of all kit, bikes and top class instruction for either a morning or afternoon session.
Places are allocated on a first come first served basis via the MORE website and they get snapped up pretty quickly. The ‘go live’ date is this Saturday, May 16th from 10 o’clock onwards so get yourself registered as soon as possible. The group behind MORE includes Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki and Yamaha. Off-road sporting body AMCA run the practical side of the day and it is project managed by the MCIA to encourage new people to off-road riding and sport.
Sandra Cole, who manages the event for the MCIA says it’s suitable for a wide variety of people: “You don’t need to be an experienced road rider or have a license. You just need to be interested in having a go off-road. Whether your long term goal is some gentle green laning, or becoming the next motocross star, you have to start somewhere and MORE gives you that first opportunity”.
