BOOKING

WHY 'DOROTHY'S'?

'Dorothy's' is named after the bike I rode from Sydney to London back in 2009 and then across America to Alaska in 2012. I worked as a motorcycle journalist after that, before in 2017 beginning to run a series of tours called 'Garbage Runs', as they began as being aimed at small cheap bikes.

Tours of the UK, Europe, America and Australia followed, until 2020 when Covid struck and the need to stay closer to home gave birth to 'Dorothy's Speed Shop', as place in North Devon where the adventures could be based. A fleet of iconic Aussie post bikes (same as Dorothy) are at the heart of the experiences, alongside tours for people on their own bikes.

Look forward to seeing you on the road.
