Ever fancy a spot of green laning but haven't got the experience or the right bike to try it? Then a day down in Devon on a genuine Aussie post bike could be just the ticket!

Light, nimble and easy to ride (once you've got the hang of the centrifugal clutch), the bikes are perfectly sized for exploring the green lanes and back roads of North Devon.

As well as some stunning coastal roads, you'll ride some legal green lanes, ride along mud, rock and grass, stopping to take in some of the amazing views and falling in love with these unstoppable machines.

Riders must be over 21 and have an A1 or above licence. They must be willing to get mucky or dusty and be challenged in their riding. These days aren't for off road Gods loking to show off, they're for everyday bikers who just wish to broaden their horizons.

Group size maximum of 6.

Chance to try the new CT125

New to the fleet is the CT125, which isn't officially imported to the UK but sits as the more modern, slightly heavier and taller younger sibling to the iconic CT110. Depending on numbers, there'll be chance to try the new bike, although bear in mind for the novice rider, new to green laning, the old bike is arguably the easiest to handle of the two. But you can make up your own mind...

At Dorothy’s all we ask is:

  • You treat the bike with the respect that you treat your own

  • You ride within your limits at all times and acknowledge that there is no obligation to keep up with the rider in front.

  • You only attempt terrain that you deem suitable to your ability. There is no obligation to ride anything you don’t want to.

  • You agree to ride responsibly around other riders

  • You agree to remain behind the lead rider at all times

  • You agree to declare any medical condition or history that may be detrimental to your participation

  • You agree that Dorothy’s Speed Shop will remove me from the course if my behaviour is considered dangerous to myself or any other person.

  • You agree that you have sole responsibility for your own actions and personal safety and that you must ride to your own abilities and conditions. You have dynamic control of the bike at all times.

  • You agree that you shall not consume alcohol or drugs before or during the ride.

  • You agree that you have not been convicted of any motoring offence involving drink or drugs in the last 5 years.

  • You accept that motorcycling is an inherently dangerous pursuit and there is of course risk of injury, disablement and death.

  • You accept that there is no personal injury insurance, only the bike is covered, therefore if you are self employed you might want to consider some income protection insurance such as with protectmyincome.com

That might sound ominous but other than a few gentle topples these are a relaxed, gentle paced days designed to showcase the best of the landscape, the bikes and also show that green laning isn't as intimidating as you might have thought.

 

THE HISTORY OF DOROTHY'S

Below are some mages from Garbage Run Australia 2019, when 8 riders conquered the infamous Australian Outback, the bikes then shipped to the UK, and their new home of North Devon. Be part of their ongoing story...
