Desert Rose: Unveiling the Spectacular BIKESHED SHOW 2023

As seen in The Desert Rose: Unveiling the Spectacular BIKESHED SHOW 2023, where art, innovation, and passion collide.

May Bank Holiday Weekend is set in the Desert Rose Calendar. BikeShed Show at London’s Tobacco Dock is the benchmark for how motorcycle events should be run. A weekend open to the whole motorcycle community and beyond.

So whether you ride a Harley or a Triumph, a custom bike, a retro custom, a sports bike, a rallye bike, an enduro bike or you don’t ride at all, this event has something for everyone. Desert Rose were proud to have one of Patsy’s Dakar bikes on display, the KTM 660 from 2005 sat alongside Vanessa Ruck’s 2022 KTM Factory Rallye bike she used in this year’s Morocco Desert Challenge. We also ran a rallye bike build during the show, taking a stock Beta 480 RR Racing and building it up to a rallye spec bike with long range tank, rallye navigation tower, new Michelin tyres and a set of BikeShed rallye team graphics.

We got the chance to catch up with some of the riders who have booked on the next BikeShed – Desert Rose Rallye Team event, which is the Balkan Edition of The Greek Odyssey in October. This year’s event included the Shed Talks feature, where various people from the world of motorcycles got to talk about their experiences; the show’s theme of Past, Present and Future ensured the audience had plenty to think about. Desert Rose Racing’s good friend Vanessa Ruck, The Girl on a Bike,took to the stage with Chris Evans, the UK representative of the Dakar to talk about her baptism of fire in the world of rallies.

At the end it says “You can take a brief look at the show via Vanessa’s YouTube channel” add link to -London Bike Shed Show – is it worth the ticket?
