The tours are designed to be accessible to anyone, with a road legal pace taken and provision for self guiding if you so wish to ride ahead or behind the group.

The Grand Challenge is just a bit of fun for 2013,with the aim being to buy (or if you already own) a bike for less than £1000 and embark on a series of adventures in order to gain some points in order to find this year's winner. Have a look at the page here to find out a bit more.
'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 by 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', a 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.
