Donation: £35, or free if you are prepared to lead a group of riders on a legal route of your creation.
Unless there is a significant show element involved, we haven’t listed every autojumble and swap meet in the Motorcycle Events Calendar. Likewise, unless there is a hefty bike activities element, we haven’t included many club rallies or biker-only music festivals, unless they’ve got a great reputation. This is mainly a list of the larger or more specialist bike-focussed events, plus we’ve added in the major sports bike race events.
All prices are on-the-gate prices for a single day visit, unless otherwise stated. Other ticket prices may be available in advance, as well as concessionary prices. See event websites for more details.
If your event isn’t listed in the Motorcycle Events Calendar, let us know via the Contact Us page, using the ‘editorial’ email address and putting the words Event Listing in the subject line of your email.
