Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Roll up, roll up for the Urban Action Weekend at the Great Northern Warehouse, Manchester... for one weekend only.

Join us for two days of indoor pump track, air bag, demo bikes, competitions and prizes, music, food and drinks. Outside our space will be alternative action events that promise to test your strength and provide a spectacle.

If you feel like honing your bike skills, getting air time or setting a fastest lap on our pump track, book your tickets today. Feel free to bring your own bike or test a demo bike. Polish your bike skills on the indoor pump track and air bag or try out the Swifty Air scooter designed by Swifty Scooters.

There will be plenty to do for daredevils and fitness fanatics. And, spectators fear not - the day is accompanied by great Manchester music, with delicious food and drink. We will be joied by Grindsmith Coffee, Secondcity Coffee, Sweet Mandarin and tasty specials from Almost Famous.

Whilst the Dirt Factory team search for a permanent base, why not taste some ride inside action. This weekend is all about having fun, getting active and meeting up with fellow riders from the city and beyond.
