Dirt Factory Pop-Up pre-opening plans

Dirt Factory Pop-Up welcomes first school group
Dirt Factory construction partners
A big Thank You to our construction partners

The trails are crafted and the team are putting the finishing touches to the Dirt Factory Pop-Up build. We’re all extremely excited to share with you our brand new indoor bike park. Right in the heart of Manchester city centre.

Alongside transforming the space at Mayfield Manchester we’ve been getting our back-of-house in order. Our staff team is growing and we will soon be launching our volunteer programme. We’ve also teamed up with the creative minds at Underway to host a series of free workshops each Saturday in March.

The Manchester city centre Pop-Up recently hosted its first school-group session followed by the first private-hire booking. These both went extremely well and the feedback we’ve had from riders has been awesome.

With each day that passes the trails are getting drier and drier. The team and I are almost ready to welcome riders but before we open fully to the public we will be hosting a series of ‘test’ sessions to refine our processes and bed-in the trails. Throughout March keep an eye out on our Eventbrite page and social media channels for limited tickets to evening and weekend sessions.

We know everyone is super keen to hit the trails and see what the Dirt Factory Pop-Up is all about. Our priority is to make sure everything is ready and we can offer the best indoor riding experience possible for when the doors open proper. Thank you for bearing with us and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

Best wishes,
