Overland Event 2016

In 2016, Continental will once again be both supporting and attending the 3-day Overland Event near Oxford.

Put together by the team behind the quarterly Overland Magazine, the festival takes place during the August Bank Holiday, and promises lots of inspirational entertainment for motorcycle travelers.

Along with the obligatory food, drink and music there will also be test rides, display bikes, author presentations, workshops, a free cinema and off-road trails. That includes our workshop on tyre changing, which went down extremely well last year – it’s vital to know if you’re ever caught out a long way from home!

The Overland Event is a relaxed weekend for like minded people to come together and share stories and experiences, with the aim to inspire you to take now new and exciting challenges.

The event will also be supporting Simon Millward’s Motorcycle Outreach charity again this year. Although Simon sadly passed away in 2005, but his charity continues to deliver life saving healthcare treatment to remote areas of several countries including Tanzania and Indonesia. Last year Overland Event raised more than £1200, which has helped them to continue their vital work.

Most of those attending the event will choose to camp, but other options are available including dormitory accommodation and wooden pods.

Tickets for the 2016 event are now available to buy, with options for a single day or a full weekend pass, from the official Overland Event website.

If you’re planning on enjoying some of the fantastic off-road trails in the area that weekend, then check out our range of Adventure Sport tyres.
