Bike Shed Festival weekend event

On Friday to Sunday, 4-6th October, the Bike Shed are holding their first ever Bike Shed Festival at Lydden Hill race circuit in Kent.

It’ll take place over the 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, and have never considered racing. This is an opportunity to have fast, safe fun on your bike without the pressure of a full-on track-day, where the racing is about having fun with like-minded people without worrying about podium glory.

And as well as the track riding, the Malle London team will be hosting ‘The Malle Trials’, a series of inappropriate motorcycle races and off-road fun, racing up the grassy hill beside the main track. As with all Bike Shed events, they want to create a spectacle, so cooler, rarer, more custom, and (in)appropriate bikes will get first dibs.


There’ll also be high quality food, drink and accommodation, with brand and retail exhibitors of all kinds, plus entertainment aimed at a family (and dog)-friendly crowd.

Lydden Hill is just 90 minutes from London, down the A2, near Dover, and you can get tickets, entries and more info from
