Bristol Bike Show to take place at Seamus O'Donnell'sPosted on: 11 Aug 2017
The fair, which draws two wheel enthusiasts and petrol heads from all over the South West, will skid back into its home of Seamus O'Donnell's St Nicholas Market next Saturday (19th August).
Dust off your leathers and flick up those kick-stands, because it’s time to start being motorbike-minded once more. The Bristol Bike Show, the largest gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts in the South West has announced the date of its 2017 instalment, which is set to take place on the 19th August following the roaring success of the last 20 years.
From 10am to 4pm on the day, visitors will be able to observe an impressive collection of motorcycles, including standards, customs and some real classic rarities, as well as trade stands and representatives from leading bike organisations. Food stalls and live bands ensure that this will be a day to savour for all of the family - not just dad.
Organised by MAG Bristol, it's a highlight of Bristol’s summer calendar for not only like-minded bike enthusiasts but for each and everyone looking for a different and interesting excursion. It is also completely free.
Serving up the best pint of Guinness you’ll find this side of the Irish Sea, Seamus O’Donnell’s is one of Bristol’s favourite pubs. A classic one-room Irish pub, the décor is classic without being tacky – something you associate with the larger Irish-themed chain bars and their over the top stylings.
Bringing a bike to the show is easy and does not require advance booking. Simply arrive before midday and register at the control point. For more information about the show, head to its Facebook page.
An ardent Geordie minus the accent, Sam seemingly strove to get as far away from the Toon as possible, as soon as university beckoned. Three undergraduate years at UoB were more than ample time for Bristol (as it inevitably does) to get under his skin, and so here he remains: reporting, as Assistant Editor, on the cultural happenings which so infatuated him with the city.
