It’s the ultimate biking weekend of the year. The Devitt MCN Festival of Motorcycling is the largest outdoor bike show in the UK boasting the biggest test bike fleet in Europe. Bring your helmet and get involved!
Ride the 2019 bikes
It’s the only event in the UK where you can road test bikes from all the manufacturers in the same place. There are hundreds of test ride slots all up for grabs. The only thing you need to do is bring your licence and lid and book yourself onto as many rides as you can!
See two full days of proper racing
The Dirt Track Riders Association will be holding a two day round of oval racing at the Festival. Races include everything from rookie, pro, junior (7-11 year olds) and the dramatic Hooligan class. One of the highlights of the round, the Hooligan racing has everything from Harley Davidsons to Ducati’s thundering around the speedway track.
See some incredible stunts
There are some jaw dropping stunt shows lined up including the impressive Arenacross Freestyle Motocross team, the Michelin sponsored Two Brothers stunt crew plus the incredible Steve Colley and Dave Coates. There will also be 40ft jumps, rolling burnouts, wheelies, stoppies, whips, flips and tricks galore!
Bag a bargain
If it’s bargains you’re after this Festival is the place to be. We’ve got acres of retail stands selling everything from discounted clothing to top notch gear from premier brands.
Stay for the weekend and party
There’s so much to see and do, it makes sense to camp. Camping is on site and just a short stumble from the Arena where you’ll find live music and a late bar on Friday and Saturday night.
Four of the UK’s biggest biking celebs have confirmed they’ll be coming to the Devitt MCN Festival of Motorcycling on May 18/19 at the Peterborough Arena. Meeting and greeting festival visitors will be six-time champion of the British Superbike Championship Shakey Byrne, the only person in the history of the series to win six titles. Also attending will be Carl Fogarty – one of the most successful World Superbike racers of all time, Chris Walker, British motorcycle road racer and former scrambler with the nickname The Stalker plus Dougie Lampkin who holds twelve FIM World titles and is a true trials bike legend.
The fab four will be on site the entire weekend signing autographs, posing for selfies and being interviewed on the MCN stage. With decades of tales to tell from the world of WSB, BSB, Trials and even sidecar racing the MCN Stage is bound to be packed so make sure you get to the Festival early. Carl Fogarty and Dougie Lampkin are appearing courtesy of CCM and when they’re not on stage they’ll be on the CCM stand drooling over the firm's latest machines.
It’s your chance to buy a used bike, and sell one too!
