Let’s face it, we’re all having the most fun when we’re in the saddle. The ABR Festival was created to have riding at its core, and that will never change. With that in mind, this year we’ll have countless riding opportunities for you to enjoy. Here, we’ve taken upon ourselves to pick out some of the riding highlights that you’ll be able to get involved with while at the ABR Festival, and the best part – they’re all included in the price of your ticket*. Let’s ride…
AX41 Adventure Trail
The jewel in the crown of the ABR Festival is the AX41 Adventure Trail. An exclusive purpose-built 20km off-road course built with adventure and trail bikes in mind. Whether you are a novice to off-road riding, or more experienced in tackling tougher terrain, the trail will offer something for everyone. With a sense of riding freedom that you would struggle to find anywhere else in the UK, the AX41 Adventure Trail can’t be missed.
New for this year are more beginner-friendly trails. We’ve incorporated a beginner’s loop, specifically designed for, well, beginners – it’s a very gentle, very chilled-out route with nothing challenging at all. Think of it as a green slope at a ski resort and you’re right on track.
*A trail access ticket is required to ride the AX41 Adventure Trail

We’ve teamed up with the Trail Riders Fellowship (TRF) to offer visitors the chance to experience the thrill of greenlaning. The TRF will lead regular group ride ours throughout the festival weekend, working their way through the fantastic lanes which can be found around picturesque Warwickshire, the Cotswolds, and beyond.
You’ll be in safe hands under the expert guidance of the TRF. Whether you are new to greenlaning, or more a little more experienced, they’ll be a rideout suitable for you.
