For one weekend only on 29th and 30th April, Dirt Factory will host a pop-up event at the iconic Great Northern Warehouse in Manchester city centre. The Urban Action Weekend promises an indoor pump track, air bag, demo bikes from Evans Cycles, competitions, giveaways and much more.
Whether you’re a mountain biker, BMXer, road rider, or cycle commuter, experience the thrill of the pump track, hone your jump skills on an air bag or race against the clock for your chance to bag some prizes from leading bike brands.
After their successful crowd fund last year, the Dirt Factory team are working to secure a permanent base for their large-scale indoor bike park project. Alongside their search for premises Dirt Factory will be popping up at events and schools throughout 2017 to give people a taste of their bike park experience.
Dan Makin, one of the founders and Directors of Dirt Factory, said: “We’re delighted for Dirt Factory to be returning to its roots with a collaborative and fun weekend of action at the Great Northern.
“Urban Action Weekend is all about having fun, getting active and meeting up with fellow riders from the city and beyond. We thought it would be great to give the people of Manchester a flavour of what we’re about ahead of us securing a permanent space to operate in.”
The Urban Action Weekend at Great Northern will also include a chance to demo Swifty Scooters, an industrial fitness and strength challenge run by Test Your Steel, DJs, food and drink stalls.
Mark Schofield, Great Northern’s Centre Director, said: “We’re delighted to host Dirt Factory and their exciting programme of events to Great Northern – they’ve wowed us with their big thinking ideas and we know they will be a huge hit with our visitors.”
The Urban Action Weekend will take place on Saturday 29 and Sunday 20 April from 10 am to 5 pm on both days.
