What’s on at the Peterborough MCN summer festival 2016?

It might be held in May, but we guarantee the MCN summer festival 2016 is going to be a hot one – with plenty of action to get the temperature rising, whatever the weather. Year after year this festival moves up to yet another gear and it’s now one of the ‘must-go-to’ events in the motorbiking calendar. And no wonder, when you see what’s lined up!

Drool over the hottest new bikes at the MCN Summer Festival 2016

The big marques in motorbikes will be showing off their latest models, and inviting you to sit in the saddles and open the throttles. All the latest and greatest machines for 2016 with as much hot metal as you could wish for, all in a single event over two unforgettable days of biking bliss.

Head out on the highway, and put them through their paces

This will really get your motor running! The chance to take the 2016 newcomers on a test drive on the finest roads in Cambridgeshire – which could have been made just for motorcycling. From adventure and off road bikes to cutting-edge sports bikes, if you’ve got a licence you could get the keys and go for a spin.

Check out stunt rider Steve Colley at the MCN Summer Festival 2016

‘Mr Showtime’ himself, Steve Colley, will be there making jaws drop with his unique displays of bike control. This guy has to be one of the best in the business and always pulls in the crowds in at every biking event. You think you’ve seen everything possible on two wheels? Well, not until you’ve seen Steve perform his signature ‘monowheel’ stunt. We won’t even try to describe it – you have to see it to believe!

Clubs play their aces, and come up trumps again

If you love motorbikes, join the club. Lots of enthusiasts do just that – and you can meet them in the Club Zone. People from clubs up and down the country fuelled by passion and pride of ownership, who live and breathe biking. Among other things, they’ll be staging a fascinating variety of display bikes representing the club movement and the post-war history of motorcycling.
