THE BIKE SHED FESTIVAL

For the last 10 years, the indoor Bike Shed events have reached iconic status among custom motorcycle enthusiasts. This year, however, marks the start of taking things outdoors. As the official title sponsor for the Bike Shed Festival, we’d like to tell you why you should join us on October 5 & 6.

THE SCREAM FOR MORE

Known for their beautiful London-based venue and their well-curated indoor events, the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club is, at its core, a club, which typically consists of likeminded human beings. That’s quintessentially the case with BSMC. And although they managed to turn their club into a successful business, at the heart of it all stands a group of bike-savvy guys and gals whose passion is riding motorcycles.

With that in mind, they bundled forces with their members at the inaugural one-day event called the “Café Racer Cup” last year. What started out as an accessible case of fun and games quickly came with the need for more. And with their well-known credo “Go big or go home” the team went about their business. Enter stage left: The Bike Shed Festival. Coming to you on October 5 and 6 at the Lydden Hill Race Circuit situated in the Kent Hills, presented to you by yours truly.

MEET US AT THE BIKE PARADE

Being the headline sponsor goes beyond just putting our logo on things. We’ll be practicing what we preach, and we’ll be looking forward to hearing your stories. We’ll have our latest collection to show for our developments in the motorcycle gear department, and we’re interested in hearing your thoughts on how your perfect outfit for riding should/would look like.

Whether it’s clothing or bike related, we’ll have our setup in place to welcome you and we’ll make sure to add a little extra to your stay at The Bike Shed Festival. What will we add? Well, I guess you’ll find out early October on-site!

About this page

OPEN TO ALL

The Bike Shed is an inclusive bunch, something a-typical to a club that normally requires you to be a member before they allow you to be part of their shenanigans. Yes, you can become a member and this comes with benefits, but to those looking to dip their toes into a world called Bike Shed, the doors are wide open.

The Bike Shed Festival is no exception, as you are welcomed by The Bike Shed and ourselves as headline sponsor. You can either breathe in the atmosphere and watch accessible racing on and off-track, or pick up the gauntlet and get some track action going yourself. Check if your bike complies with the conditions over here.

BINGE WATCH WEEKEND

With binge-watching becoming a more and more popular way to spend your weekend, we respond to online streaming services by providing you with a weekend’s worth of excitement and attractions, which allows virtually any rider in any stage of their riding career an accessible time on track.

From L-Plate action limited to 125ccs, to an electric cup open to zero-emission bikes, to the more high-speed classes manned by motorcycle journalists. And if you’re into the retro rockets from the 90s (like myself), you’ll love the Retro Racer Cup. I’m still having trouble sleeping at night; should I book myself a spot aboard my beloved 851?

About this page

THEY DREW FIRST MUD

Respect is a word that’s not taken lightly by the Bike Shed Crew, so instead of competing with the highly likeable Malle Mile during the Festival, they’ve teamed up with the Malle crew to include some off-road time into the mix. 

If you’re more into knobbies than slicks, make sure you set your sight on their Malle Trials. The team at Malle will ensure it’s entry-level fun for all looking to get things dirty and muddy, but if you bring your competitive spirit, you will not be disappointed either.

KENT CAMPING

With a weekend full of activities, we encourage you to go all-in and join us for the entire weekend. To make things easy, there’s the option to camp on-site. You can either stay in your own shelter, or go the glamping route. Should you choose the latter, booking a bell tent means you get all the bells and whistles. 

A proper bed along with close-by toilet and shower facilities are just some of the perks. Those looking for a proper night’s sleep to be fit for track action needn’t worry, there’s a curfew for the live music ensuring you’ll enjoy a quiet night sleep before getting back into the saddle.
