Motorcycle Events in June 2019

With Summer well and truly upon us (hopefully, we wrote this back in November…) the events season is hotting up. There’s pretty much something for everyone, from classics and retro customs to off-road adventure meets. And of course, there’s always BSB for the nutters on sportsbikes.


31 May – 2 June

Ireland Bike Fest

Muckross Road, Killarney, County Kerry, South West of Ireland.

They say:
This festival has evolved into a well-oiled machine attracting bike enthusiasts in their tens of thousands from all over the world. The real attraction of this fiesta – aside from th fact its completely free to attend – is the opportunity to ride the twisting tracks around the mountains, high above the lakes and running alongside the sea, on world-famous routes such as the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way.

Prices: Free



2 June

Normous Newark Autojumble

Newark Showground, Lincoln Rd, Coddington, Newark, NG24 2NY
We say:
The first of the year’s near-monthly autojumbles at this famous venue. It’s not just bikes – cars and commercials also feature – but classic cars and bikes are the main draw and there are displays of each as well as private and trade stalls. Get there early if you want to grab a real bargain.
Prices: Standard admission £7 for anyone over 12, after 10am. Early bird admission at 8am: £10

Cholmondeley Power and Speed Festival

Cholmondeley Castle Garden, Malpas, Cheshire SY14 8AH

They say:
Magnificent motorcycles – The World’s best will be on display. There will be classic motorcycle demonstrations and trade stands plus enthralling on-the-track action featuring parades, ride pasts and speed trials, where two wheelers tested each other to the limit on the Power and Speed circuit.

We say:
There’s a whole lot more beside the bikes, this is basically a Festival of Speed-type deal with cars, bikes, air displays and lots more stuff for the family. Basically a Northern Goodwood Festival of Speed…

Ride out with Nick Sanders at the MACH Motorbike Festival

6-9 June

Mach 3 – The Motorbike Festival

Rugby Pitch, Cae Hafren, Llanidloes, Powys, SY18 6LQ, Wales

We say:
I know we said no music festivals but this one is different because of where it is: Smack bang in the middle of some of the world’s best biking roads. And Nick Sanders will show you where they are.

They say:
MACH is a unique motorcycling festival set in the lush, rolling hills and mountains of west Wales. Festival goers enjoy delicious home cooked food, fantastic live music across four nights, mass ride-outs, celebrity adventure guest speakers, a pristine location surrounded by some of the best roads in the world and the chance to be part of a community of like-minded bikers for 4 unforgettable days in May.

Prices: From £72, £95 on the gate



14-16 June

Bennetts British Superbike Championship

Brands Hatch Circuit, Fawkham, Longfield, Kent DA3 8NG

14-16 June

RBLR 1000 Ride

Squires Cafe Bar, B1222, Newthorpe, near Sherburn in Elmet, West Yorkshire, LS25 5LX

They say:
This is a sponsored long distance motorcycle ride to raise money for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal. The event has been running since 2009 and has always had well over 100 riders taking part every year. You don’t all ride together, you choose which route to ride and either ride on your own, or with friends. All routes start and finish in one central location near Leeds in Yorkshire on a Saturday near to the Summer Solstice, meaning that apart from a few hours, the whole route can be ridden in daylight. If you complete a 1000 mile route in less than 24 hours you’ll automatically become a member of the Iron Butt Association. There are three main routes to ride which all start and finish at Squires Cafe Bar. The main Northern and Southern routes are just over 1000 miles and can be ridden in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction. There’s also a shorter 500 mile route which also can be ridden in either direction too. This means you actually have six routes in total to choose from.



15-16 June 

Prescott Bike Festival

Bugatti Owners Club, Prescott Hill, Gotherington, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL52 9RD

We say:
Famous for its ‘Paddock Specials’ – 100 invitation-only bikes – that you can get close to before the majority of them tear off up Prescott Hill. Rare Vintage, Classic, Modern, Special Build, Custom, Factory Race Bikes, Monowheels, Jet Powered and more. The Kickback Custom Show will also be held at this year’s Prescott – see below for more details. There are also stunt bikes, featured displays (this year it’s Norton), retail and dealer zones and more. And then there’s the best bit… You can run your own bike ‘Up the Hill’. See our preview from Spring 2017.

Prices: Advance tickets start at £10, Gate: Adults £15, Kids under 16 free



15-16 June 


Bugatti Owners Club, Prescott Hill, Gotherington, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL52 9RDZ

They say:
This year Kickback will be held at the Prescott Bike Festival. Kickback is a celebration of engineering and design excellence which embraces the modern custom scene and the new wave. Kickback is a definitive showcase for rare classics and customised gems; built in sheds, garages and workshops by young engineers as well as experienced professionals. Kickback may not be considered mainstream, or for wealthy city people; it’s a cool and subversive event that champions the offbeat and loves bringing like-minded people together to discuss anything from frame modifications and flat trackers to café racers and clip-ons…

Prices: TBC

The British Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warwickshire CV35 0BJ

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.
