Bikes at the Bay 2017

12/08/2017 @ 12:00 pm - 13/08/2017 @ 4:00 pm

In 2015 the award winning Ramsgate Sprint Revival helped rekindle memories of the old days of bike racing in East Kent and was enjoyed by thousands of visitors. Last year the Rev Up showcased a fantastic selection of modern and classic race machines – and even more visited on the Sunday.

For 2017 we have outgrown the site and are moving a few miles round the coast to a new home at Sandwich showground just off the main road (A256) Now we have more space to play with, this year’s Bikes at the Bay is going to bigger and better than ever.

The event will run over 2 days from midday Saturday 12th through to Sunday 13th afternoon so there’s plenty of time to catch what’s going on!

£4 per day. £1 per day for under 12’s.
Pay on the day.

Just rock up (on the Saturday after 12pm)! HOWEVER, you will need to pay on the day when you arrive. It will be £10 per pitch and is only available on the Saturday night.
No camping available to the public on the Friday night – only stall holders.
Pitch up from 12pm Saturday, not before.
The £10 does NOT include entrance fee, this is just for the pitch.

You MUST pre-book to let the organisers know you’re arriving.
We cannot accept new arrivals on the day.
Camping for stall holders/traders/clubs ONLY is available from the Friday night.

The full list of activities is still being finalized, but some of the things we’ve got planned include:

• Another stonking collection of important and unique race machinery including Barry Sheene’s 1976/77 world championship winning bikes
• More custom bikes on show
• An arena for club bikes and specials to be paraded
Trials, grass track and vintage scramblers demos

• Creative quarter – artists, designers, custom builders + more
• Live music on Saturday night and Sunday day time
• Late opening bar with craft ales
• Family fun-fair
