The Adventure Spec Grant helps riders around the world create stories that celebrate the craft of adventure motorcycling.
We have been part of journeys to the furthest ends of the planet, record breaking solo round the world attempts, right through to helping newbies make their first foray onto dirt. These stories are brought together by the fact that without the knowledge, expertise and equipment that Adventure Spec provide the riders undertaking these journeys, big and small, would have struggled to take their first step. As well as this, and this is the important bit, each Adventure Spec Grant awardee has been able to capture their journey in such a way that others can share their experiences and celebrate the essence of adventure motorcycling.
We helped them, they spread the word and perhaps they encouraged the next adventure rider to turn their idea into a journey.
If you would like to apply for an Adventure Spec Grant please fill in the application form below. We like to award two grants per year, however decisions are made based on the quality of the application, not the quantity we receive.
We endeavour to let you know that we have received your application within a week. If for any reason this has not happened please feel free to contact us at
What are we looking for?
Ideas that are creative and have a sense of originality. Applicants that can demonstrate that without our support it would be very difficult for them to achieve their ambition. The ability to document and share their story (through photography, writing, film, public speaking etc). Journeys that enlighten and have the power to improve society. Stories that celebrate the craft of adventure motorcycling.
What are we not looking for?
Riders who simply want the most bling for as cheap as possible.
What can we offer?
A kit consultation with our Adventure Spec tech team who will help asses what you are likely to need on your journey, as well as what you won't. You will have full access to our warehouse where you can try out all our stock and we will explain how it works. We will help select key items that will give you the best chance of achieving your adventure goals, and provide these to you without charge. A route planning session with our Adventure Spec nav team who will help identify where you want to go and how you could get there. We will share our knowledge of overland travel that covers most of the world, and where we don't have the answers we will put you in touch with those who do. We will share our network of contacts that could be of assistance on your journey. The approximate value of this grant is £2,000 - £4,000* *Split between kit and expert consultation (not cash). We are not in the habit of packing everything including the kitchen sink so we will provide the kit you need, not all the bling that you can carry.
