There are so many exciting motorcycle events that take place throughout the year in the UK, that sometimes it can be hard to keep track of them all. So, to help you out, we’ve put together a list of the biggest and best bike shows for your calendar.
Perhaps the biggest and, arguably, best motorcycle trade show of the year, Motorcycle Live has everything a true enthusiast might need. It has the latest makes and models from major manufacturers, racing announcements and celebrity appearances. Better yet, seize the opportunity to have a go yourself with the Moto Trails Experience and Adventure Experience. With the event spread across 9 days, there’s plenty of time for those who want a little of everything to experience it all.
Set against the beautiful backdrop of London’s historic tobacco docs, the Bike Shed Show is a fantastic family-friendly event full of brilliant bikes, fantastic food, and marvellous music – ‘not a motorcycle trade fair’. With something for everyone to enjoy, whatever age, the show is sure to be an all-round good time.
Looking for a high speed and classic motorcycle road race in an exquisite Victorian public park in the heart of south Wales? Aberdare Park Road Races has all of this and more, with the stunning setting only highlighting the beauty of the racing bikes.
The MCN festival offers action galore for the thrill seekers among you. From the skill of the Dirt Track Riders Association to Moped Mayhem and jaw-dropping stunts, there’s plenty to see. For those also looking to buy, motorcycle test rides are on offer, along with the best deals on the latest retail items, and autojumbles.
Based at the beautiful Grimsthorpe Castle outside of Peterborough, the Malle Mile event surrounds you with gorgeous British countryside and the gorgeous sound of motorcycles – What more could you ask for?
Except, of course, to get involved in the races for yourself, which are open to anyone. They take place throughout the weekend, with popular races including The Mile Sprint, The Hill Climb, The Malle 100, The Dash, The Derby and the Art of The Sprint.
Another magnificent Malle event to add to the calendar is the annual Beach Race, held on the sandy beach of Margate. With all kinds of weird and wonderful bikes pitted against each other for a race down the sands, this event is unlike any other!
