Bike Shed Festival 2019
By Anthony van Someren - 30 Aug 19
The Café Racer Cup - For proper modern, custom and retro cafe racers, with clip-ons, single seats and rearset pegs, with round, oval or square headlight, and no full fairing,
The Street Cup - For naked street bikes, custom or standard, (but not supernakeds or faired sportbikes).
The Easy Rider Cup - For chopper, bobber, custom, cruiser, high-bar and feet-forward roadsters.
The Herald L-Plate Cup - for newbies on 125s.
The Vintage Cup - For proper vintage bikes, with owners not quite keen enough to race at the VMCC.
The Journo Cup - for Journos and ex champs on borrowed (press fleet) bikes. (...to keep them out of the amateur races)
We also have a part tarmac/part dirt race, the Retro-Supermoto/Dirt Bike Cup for Scramblers, Street Trackers and older twin shock supermotos.
And last but definitely not least, we have teamed up with the Malle boys for the Malle Trails, which will feature two race events per day with three classes each, all taking place on the big hill on the inside elbow of the track.SPECTATORS Just as important as the racing, is the Festival Event itself, which is definitely emailed at providing a great day out for spectators. We have camping grounds with decent showers and facilities onsite, plus glamping in Bell tents (limited supply), and you can also bring your RV/camper etc. There will be loads of food and drink, as per our London show, lots of brands and retail, entertainment and lots of space to hang out. There's loads more info on the festival website at BikeShedFestival.com, but we do ask that if you can, please do buy your tickets in advance. It will help us plan for a better experience for everyone, and make sure we have plenty of food, drink and space for everyone who attends. London is only 90-minutes away from the Lydden Hill track, but popping up the road for more beer won't be an option, and we expect a decent crowd after last year's Cafe Racer Cup. So help us put on a great event and book your tickets on the next page you visit after this one. Dutch
