One of Rugby’s best and most-loved events – Rugby Bikefest – will be returning to Rugby town centre on Sunday 21 May, between 10.30am and 4pm! The high octane, free family event, organised by Rugby First in conjunction with local motorcycling groups, will see thousands of people descend on the town centre for this spectacular event!

Whether you are a bike enthusiast or not, there is something to keep everyone entertained – a ‘ride-in’, bike displays, stalls, live music, children’s activities, funfair and food – a great day out for all the family!

Something not to be missed is the ‘Ride-in’, where hundreds of bikes roar into the town centre creating a fantastic spectacle along with a deafening noise. If you own a bike and would like to join the ‘Ride-in’ all you need to do is register your details via the website below.

Linda Lowne, Rugby First Business and Stakeholder Manager, said; “Rugby Bikefest is one of the most popular events in the town centre events calendar! It attracts thousands of visitors, from the local area and further afield, and creates a real buzz in the town centre. Many local businesses get involved with the event, and they see a significant increase in footfall and revenue on the day.”

Linda, continued: “As a result of the high-footfall the event provides great opportunities for sponsorship – if you are interested in finding out more please get in touch. Finally, a big thank you to the local biking groups that support this event, as without their help, support, passion and enthusiasm it would not be possible to deliver such a successful event.”
