It’s a year or so since Dirt Factory successfully raised investment for an indoor bike park, and since then they’ve had an eventful time trying to find a suitably sized and located building. There’s no permanent Greater Manchester facility just yet, but in the meantime they will be running events.
On the 29th and 30th of April they’ll be setting up a pump track and airbag at the Great Northern Warehouse, on Deansgate right in the centre of Manchester (you know you’ve always wanted to hit an airbag! Just don’t let it instil you with artificial confidence when you’re back on the trails, dirt is much harder…). As well as that, there will also be demo bikes, competitions, coffee and food. Tickets are for one hour sessions where you get to ride the facilities as much as you like, which sounds like a great laugh with your mates. More details on their blog, and tickets are on Eventbrite.
