The best biking events for Oct 17-24 and beyond

Welcome to our list of the best biking events for the next week and the rest of 2019. If you’d like us to consider your event, please email emily@sbsmag.co.uk with details.

If the smell of Castrol R gets your nostalgia motor running you’ll be in your element at the Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show at the Staffordshire County Showground on the 19th and 20th of October. The GP Paddock will be firing up famous race bikes twice a day, and will play host to two guests of honour – 10-time World Sidecar champion Steve Webster MBE and bike building genius Allen Millyard, who’ll be bringing along his collection of crazy home builds. If you’ve got cash burning a hole in your pocket, the Bonhams auction will take place on both days, where you could get your hands on some weird and wonderful items, including bikes from as early as 1903. For a wacky buy, and if you’ve got £50K-£100K laying around, you could get your hands on a 2016 Harley-Davidson signed by the Pope. More sensible offerings are available too, such as project bikes, GP memorabilia and parts from older machines. Tickets for the show are £16 on the gate, and children under 15 get in for free.
