On the weekend of 24.-26. We are taking over the Ragley Hall property on June 6th, 2022 and transforming it into an adventure and hiking paradise, and you are cordially invited. We had enough of the usual motorcycle event formula that usually resembles trunk sales, so we decided to make our own.
For us, a motorcycle festival should celebrate life on two wheels and offer you a friendly, relaxed feel-good atmosphere with lots of driving opportunities. And that is exactly what you will find at the ABR Festival.
We’re all about getting you involved. So when you come to the ABR Festival 2022 you will be overwhelmed by the amount of attractions we have for you and your bike.

1. The AX41 adventure trail
The feedback from the ABR Festival 2021 showed how much the specially built adventure trail was loved on site. It was big bike friendly, with options for both novice and experienced riders, and it ran over 20 km through the spectacular grounds of the Ragley Hall Estate.
Given the craze for the trail, we’re bringing it back for 2022 and we’re doing everything we can to make sure it’s the best adventure trail you can ride in the UK.
Find out more about the AX41 adventure trail and what is in stock for you if you ride it here.
2. Drive the beginners loop
If you are a complete beginner in off-roading or want to build up your confidence before venturing onto the main AX41 adventure trail, then you will love the Beginner’s Loop.
Think of it like a green slope in a ski area; There are no egos, it’s easy to drive, and it’s a place where you can take your time and learn about driving in dirt.
The gentle trail takes you on a short loop over grass and next to the forest and is only open to large adventure bikes from 650 cc.
3. Guided rides
When you read Annual interest, chances are you enjoy riding a bike (I mean who doesn’t) so getting on two wheels is one of the biggest parts of the ABR festival.
We’ll host guided Green Lane rideouts into the Cotswolds and surrounding areas, showcasing the best trails the Midlands has to offer.
If you’d rather stay on the tarmac, you’ll love our self-guided day trips that reveal the area’s treasures including the best roads to drive, the best views, and the most interesting attractions for you to stop and visit.
4. World class off road lessons
Whether you’re a complete off-roading novice or a seasoned professional, there is always something to learn … especially when you’re taught by the best instructors in the world.
At ABR Festival we pride ourselves on giving you as many driving opportunities as possible, and with a selection of off-road skills schools you can brush up on your technique before testing your newly acquired skills on the AX41 Adventure path.
5. The adventure park
As an extension of the AX41 Adventure Trail, the Adventure Park is a great place to try out technical driving.
With challenging terrain, including steep drops, hill climbs and “The Bog of Doom”, the Adventure Park is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and give your bike a taste of its quality.
6. Test the latest adventure and touring bikes
At the Adventure Bike Rider Festival 2021 there were over 100 different models of touring and adventure bikes to ride and try out.
All major motorcycle manufacturers were on site with their exhibition and test fleets and over 1,000 test drives were made daily.
The manufacturer test drives will return for 2022. So if you are thinking of buying a new bike, this is the perfect opportunity to try a selection of bikes side by side.
7. Get a taste of trial driving
Trial biking is about becoming the master of your bike at slow speeds and there are a ton of skills that can be transferred to adventure biking.
At the Adventure Bike Rider Festival, you can take a trial lesson at Inch Perfect Trials to get a feel for driving a trial bike and see if there’s a passion that lies dormant within you.
8. Become a better and safer driver
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been riding for a few days or a few decades, there is always something new to learn when it comes to becoming a smarter, better motorcyclist.
At the ABR Festival you can register for individual driving safety tests.
9. Drive an enduro course
Do you fancy an enduro course?
The ABR Festival gives you access to Little London Enduro Park, a course that twists and turns on dirt roads, over grass fields and through narrow stretches of forest.
But wait, there’s more …
If the nine reasons above are not looking forward to the weekend of June 24-26, 2022, then don’t worry.
There’s a lot more going on at the ABR Festival, including guest speakers, live music, the Adventure Travel Film Festival, ax throwing, kayaking, slow bike races and other competitions, yoga and masterclass sessions with motorcycle and travel experts.
