This year’s BMF May show (16-18 at Peterborough Arena) is packed with plenty to do as well as see.
The Show organisers, The Mulberry Group, have introduced a series of new elements this year including of course, the most important bit: The Adventure & Overland Touring area.
Overland Magazine will of course be there, so come along and see us for back issues and a huge range of travel books, but there’ll also be a a full line up of presenters/travel writers and adventurers including: Ed March, Dom Giles, Graham Hoskins, Sam Manicom, Jacqui Furneaux, Nathan Millward and Graham Field who’ll be launching his new book ‘Ureka.’ If you liked Graham’s last book you’ll love this one – written in his inimitable style it’s an exploration of Europe and the Caucasus region.
The BMF Show will also feature: Moto Gymkhana, Motoball and the all new Zebra.com Slow Race (the winner will receive £100.00 cash) – all of which offer show-goers the opportunity to participate. In addition KTM and Suzuki will be offering demo rides (both parts of your licence will be required) on the latest models they have to offer.
For those wanting to begin on 2 wheels – the Get On team will be there in force as will Cam Riders and for the younger element Oset Bikes are offering rides for those aged between 4 -12 years old. Something for all the family as they say!
This year will also see celebrities in attendance – 4 times BSB legend Carl Fogarty will be at the show on Saturday 17th
Discovery Channel’s World’s Greatest Motorcycle Rides) will be on site over the whole weekend including participating in the crazy Moped Mayhem, and being a passenger in a 1000cc sidecar.
