On 5th & 6th October 2019 Bike Shed will host their first ever Festival, which will now include the Herald Cup!

Celebrating modern and retro motorcycles on the move, on track and on the dirt, Bike Shed Festival takes place at Lydden Hill Race Circuit in Kent. It features multiple riding events, all designed to be accessible to riders who don’t normally race on track.

The Herald Cup is limited to 125cc machines and ideally for novices new to riding, but we’re also expecting fast folk to want to show that these motorcycles can put in a credible lap time. It’s a chance to have fast, safe fun on your bike without the pressure of a full-on track-day.

Practice and qualifying for the Herald Cup takes place on Saturday. If you would like to take part, you have until 18th September to submit your race entry as places are limited. The Cup is open to riders on 125cc motorcycles from all manufacturers but we’re hoping to see lots of Heralds included in the mix.

Other races taking place over the weekend include: the Café Racer Cup, Street Cup, Retro Dirtbike Cup and Journo cup, as well as the Malle Trials. We’ve heard a rumour that you will be able to watch Heralds taking part in some of these races too.  

If you’re not racing, then the Festival will also be a great day out for spectators with lots going on both on and off the track. There’s high quality food, drink and accommodation, lots of brands and retail, plus entertainment and live music aimed at a family-friendly crowd. When you’re not watching the races, stop by the Herald stand to see our range of motorcycles up close and have a look at our new collection of Herald Apparel.
