If you’ve ever wanted to know how to fix your motorcycle by the side of the road in Bolivia, create adventure biking films worthy of the big screen, or learn the secrets of round-the-world travel from those who have been there and done it, you’ll find it all at the ABR Festival. And for 2024, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve partnered with Royal Enfield to bring you the Himalayan Masterclass Stage.

You see, the ABR Festival 2024 is not just about having a blast on motorcycles. It’s also the best place to learn all the skills and info you need to become a better, more knowledgeable adventure biker, and the Himalayan Masterclass Stage is set up to help you do exactly that.

The stage will host sessions all day Friday and Saturday, and the schedule is packed full of experts who are there to teach you everything they know.

Hosted by Vanessa Ruck, the force behind The Girl on a Bike, you’re guaranteed to learn something new, whether you’re a grizzled veteran or you’ve just passed your test.

You could easily spend the entire weekend absorbing knowledge there, but because there’s so much on across the entire festival, take a look below to ensure you don’t miss out on your must-see sessions.
