29th - 31st May

The Despatch Rally returns in 2021 - Once again we bring together the motorcycling community to celebrate and honour the Despatch riders who inspired our motorcycle culture.


The day will work similarly to the previous years with a Saturday training day, camping (if possible). Rider favourites such as motorcycle control and navigation skills will be back as the Sunday Format will remain unchanged.


The return of the day of training and qualifying promises to bring more smiles and enjoyment to our ever-expanding platoon of patrons. Scores for each activity and prizes up for grabs promise to make the Despatch Rally as eagerly contested as ever.


A new format will take place on the Monday with test rides and bike demos available. We will be running the event in a Covid compliant fashion, in the hope we can guarantee the event takes place. As the year progresses and we understand better the restrictions in place we will hope to add additional excitement to the program.


Harness your ability to read a map, plot a course and gather the hidden info from across the Isle of Purbeck.


Despatch riders would have ridden on all types of terrain. Complete a segment of off-road riding and receive points toward your total event score.


Chance your hand at a spot of clay pigeon shooting. Despatch riders will be scored on their ability to master a firearm.


Control and balance will be put to the test on our rider training course. Man and machine needed to be united in order to ride to success on the Despatch Rally.


Be there on the front line.
