On 5th & 6th October 2019 we will host the first ever Bike Shed Festival – a long-awaited, and much-requested event that celebrates modern & retro motorcycles on the move; on track and on the dirt, with the same level of quality, inclusiveness and high-level hospitality as we deliver every year at Tobacco Dock during our Bike Shed London event. … Whether you come for the day or stay for the whole weekend, this event is designed as much for spectators as for the participants, and we’ll make sure there’s plenty to see and do, with live music, bars, shopping, brands, test rides and much more.
For 2019 Bike Shed Fest will take place over a whole weekend, with multiple riding events on and off the tarmac, all designed to be accessible to riders who don’t normally ride on track, never mind considering racing their bikes. This is a chance to have fast, safe fun on your bike without the pressure of a full-on track-day, where the racing is about having fun before earning podium glory. Riders will also be split into groups according to transponder lap-times during practice.
Along side the track riding and racing, the Malle London team will be hosting racing on the grassy hill beside the track, so you can also scramble up the hill in the Malle Trials.
The venue is Lydden Hill Race Circuit, a beautifully-situated old school track with modern facilities set in the Kent Hills just 30 mins down the A2 from Brand Hatch.
FOR THE CROWD
Around the whole event we’re creating a festival vibe with high quality food, drink and accommodation, backed by brand and retail exhibitors of all kinds, plus entertainment aimed at a family-friendly crowd.
