The Bike Shed are an innovative lot, always creating fun cool events. Their latest is the Bike Shed Scramble – don't bring your 2019 CRF450R – for classic/heritage types. It'll be held in Benington (we're pretty sure we know the location (TBC)) near Stevenage north of London. Sure to be a hoot. More details when we get them...

The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

Now in its seventh year, the DGR has grown, from 2500 riders in 2012 to a projected 120,000 this year. That's a lot of tweed! And a lot of money for men's health charities (prostate cancer and mental health) – last year $4.8 million was raised, this year the aim is for $6m. Check out the DGR website for one of the 650 cities worldwide where the ride will take place in 2018.

Trail Desert Challenge

A sensible 'raid' for adventure bikes, run in conjunction with the madness of the FIM world championship Rallye du Maroc rally raid. Five days on pistes and small roads, with road book but not against the clock. Ideal for first time rally riders – and the entry fee includes meals, accommodation, navi equipment etc. All in magnificent Morocco. And RUST will be there!

Saturday brings the balance of the 500km with special stages run fast and furious in the Baja fashion. This is the 32nd running, and it attracts the great and the good of international rallying as well as the amateur hopefuls...

The 50th Lake Elsinore Grand Prix

If you entered only one race in 2018 you'd have to think the Harvey Mushman 100-miler would have to be it. The Elsinore GP became world famous through Bruce Brown's On Any Sunday, so famous Honda named their 1970s motocrossers after it. It went to ground for a while, but its back now and offers a range of races and classes running around the traditional 7-mile town-and-country track. For us at RUST the HM100 has to be the big draw. Gotta celebrate that half-centenary...
