Stevenage Bikefest will be held next month and the organisers say it will be bigger and better than ever before.

Hosted by Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, the annual biker event is now in its fourth year. This year it takes place on Sunday 17 August.

Nine-time British Supermoto champion Christian Iddon will be guest of honour and the Imps, a motorcycle display team of young motorcyclists aged six to sixteen, will also be there, showing off their skills in bike displays at 11:30am and 2pm. Among the other attractions will be trade stands, competitions, a bouncy castle and food and drink stalls.

There will also be displays of specialised fire bikes used by fire and rescue services across the country, police motorcycle riders and Herts and Beds advanced motorcyclists. And the Hertfordshire Fire Bike Team will be on hand to provide safety advice for bikers of all ages.

Tony Smith from the Herts Fire Bike Team commented: “As keen bikers ourselves, we are working hard to engage with motorcyclists through events such as Bikefest and training such as Biker Down.”

Entry to Bikefest is free of charge. It will be open to visitors from 10am to 4pm at the Longfield Training Centre in Hitchin Road.

Everyone is welcome to attend – whether you’re a fan of motorcycles, mopeds or scooters or simply want a free day out with the family, Hertfordshire County Council said.
