Llandovery Motorbike Weekend 2019 review

A roaring success at the Llandovery Motorbike Weekend

While the Llandovery Motorbike Weekend 2019 was the fourth time this magnificent event had been staged, it was the first that Carole Nash visited. After this experience, it definitely won’t be our last!

Somewhere in the region of 2,000-3,000 people descended on Llandovery for this fun-filled, family-friendly weekend. And there was something for everyone, so it wasn’t a surprise to see so many happy smiling faces as the weekend went by in the blink of an eye.

A superb community event takes centre stage

The informal Bike Show event certainly attracted lots of attention and some cracking entries. Bikes battled it out for recognition in the British, European, Japanese and Vintage categories, and there were some real stunners on display.

Elsewhere, Moto Gymkhana tested the mettle of everyone who attempted it. And the Slow Race was equally impressive, testing the balance and skill of all riders – young and old.

On the Saturday, Mid Wales Fire and Rescue staged its free Biker Down course. It taught everything you need to know to take safe action at the scene of a motorcycling accident and the Carole Nash team was delighted to get involved with the demonstration. The free Dragon Rider course was an equally big hit on Sunday thanks to the sterling efforts Carmarthenshire County Council Road Safety Team.

We also helped out with the Youth Criers Competition, which certainly tested our lungs! And with craft stalls, face-painters and a full Kids Zone on site, there was no shortage of things to keep the little ones occupied.

Brilliant Carole Nash memories from our trip to Llandovery

It was great to meet so many passionate Welsh bikers at Llandovery Motorbike Weekend 2019. We were certainly kept busy at the Carole Nash tent stand dishing out goodie bags galore.

And we brought an extra special smile to the face of one lucky visitor. Paula from Pentre walked away with £100 to redeem against any Carole Nash bike or car insurance policy after winning our free prize draw!

We were also kept busy answering plenty of your questions, as well as keeping up with demand for our exclusive Carole Nash merchandise. It was a fantastic two days – and we’ll definitely be back in 2020!
