How can I keep up to date with new events and ticket releases?

The most direct way to stay up to date is by signing up to out mailing list. You can also follow us on Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook. 

Is there a forum where I can ask questions and meet riders prior to the event?

Yes! We have set up facebook groups for each region so that attendees (and potential attendees) can reach out for advice, ask questions about the event, find people to ride with, and generally engage with a growing community of like-minded adventurers! You can find these groups via our facebook page or by searching 'The Dirty Weekend U.K.', 'The Dirty Weekend Australia', 'The Dirty Weekend Morocco' etc.

Is there an age limit for The Dirty Weekend?

There is no fixed age restriction for The Dirty Weekend, however, all participants must be licensed to ride their motorcycle on the road. For example, in the U.K. you are welcome to join us from the age of 16 if you have a valid CBT and road legal 50cc motorcycle, you can join at 17 with a CBT on a 125cc etc. 

The only exception to this rule is for our Ouarzazate event in Morocco, where no licence is required. Riders must be 18+ to hire a bike for this event.

Can I bring my family or friends with me?

Unfortunately not, we do not have the additional space to host non-riders and want to ensure this event stays true to the ethos of being created by riders, for riders. We understand it can be hard to justify time away from your family, and they may want to be included, however we can't cater (and aren't insured) for additional guests. 

Can I just come for the meal? 

We apologise for setting your off your tastebuds with images of our insane farm-to-fork feast but there is no way to attend the evening festivities and meals without a full weekend ticket. This event is a shared experience which you need to fully take part in to receive the benefits. Additional guests are not able to join a ticket holder for meals. 

How do I get to Ouarzazate, Morocco?

There are multiple options for travel to Morocco, both direct and indirect. If flying, some cities now offer direct flights to Ouarzazate, including London Stanstead. You can also fly to Marrakech and we can arrange a transfer on request.

If travelling by road from the U.K. you can take the Eurotunnel or any ferry to France or Spain before catching a ferry from Gibraltar to Morocco, and riding down to Ouarzazate. 

Direct ferries to Morocco are available from Barcelona, Montpellier, and Genoa.

If you want to bring your bike but don't feel like riding you could use a company like Fly and Ride Motorcycle Transport to deliver your bike closer to the event, or bring a van.
