Bike Shed Motorcycle Club was founded on events
Having gained a huge online audience in 2011 we quickly realised our fast-growing moto-community didn't have a home, but we desperately wanted to share our passions in real life, and to turn our digital family into an analogue one with an event for riders and non-riders alike.
So, in 2013, we created our first community-driven, carefully-curated motorcycle exhibition event centred around motorcycles; the bikes, the people, art, music and photography, backed-up with great hospitality, quality food & drink, space to hang-out, live music and more, with the added eye candy of pop-up tattoo and barbershops and a family friendly, inclusive vibe.
Fast forward to now, and although we are also a full-time destination we still run our annual London show every May bank holiday, alongside other new and evolving events, large and small, from the Cafe Racer Cup to the Sunday Scramble, the Bike Shed Festival to Mini-Adventures, Track Days, Dirt-days and much more.
Bike Shed London is how Bike Shed began, with an exhibition event centred around motorcycle and custom culture, set at Tobacco Dock in London
Motorcycles from custom builders and manufacturers are exhibited alongside curated gear & apparel, quality food & drink, multiple bars and stages with live music, film screenings and a "hang-out-all-day" vibe over every May bank holiday weekend
Our large events are open to all, and although some smaller events sometimes begin as BSMC member events, most of these are opened-up to non-members to enjoy too, from hosted dinners at the Bike Shed in Shoreditch to weekend Camping trips in Wales, and much more.
Read below to get the fuller picture...
Bike Shed Festival started out at the Cafe Racer Cup; a Track-focussed weekend event where you can bring any motorcycle for timed trackday laps followed by gentlemanly racing amongst like-minded riders, many of them racing newbies
Riders are grouped by pace and type of bike, covering everything from cafe racers and streetbikes to vintage machines, adventure bikes, dirtbikes and even cruisers, choppers and customs
The event attracts a family-friendly crowd so we lay-on the usual high quality food, drink, hospitality and entertainment
Experiences & Events for the people who love motorcycles, and the people who love people who love motorcycles...
On Bike Shed Trackdays we takeover the best race tracks for our exclusive use to provide a friendly, inclusive atmosphere for all riders of all types of bikes, ...except we don't allow track bikes and super-fast trackday regulars to attend on modern sports weapons.
We strongly believe that everyone can bond with their bike on a closed track, whatever they ride, and with encouragement and practice in a safe environment it's impossible not to leave as a smoother, faster, safer rider, with more confidence - plus, who doesn't want to hang out in the paddock all day with great people, and no pressure to perform?
You'll also see listed on the calendar above our regular bi-monthly members meetings at our Shoreditch home, which are open to non-members if you know a member, or on application, Check-out our Membership page for more
What started as "the Captain's Table" has evolved into regular hosted dinners, where you can share a table with legends like Fast Freddie Spencer, Charley Boorman, Giacomo Agostini, Jamie Whitham and many more
BSMC Members get first dibs on seats but there's usually room for more, and these dinners are a regular occurrence
Our Bike Shed Sunday Scramble(s) (not always on a Sunday) are a simple way to enjoy your street scrambler, custom dirt-bike, street-tracker or Dakar rep on some of the UKs most accessible trails in Surry and Hertfordshire, all within a day's riding; starting with Brekkie at the Shed and back home in time for tea. (...or beer at the Shed)
Knobbly (ish) tyres are a must, but apart from that, all you need is the willingness to have a go and get muddy, on pretty much any bikeSUNDAY SCRAMBLE
If you really want to get away, join our Members on a hosted weekend Adventure with the option to camp, "glamp" or book a comfy B'N'B
These weekends sell-out fast so keep an eye on the calendar further up this page
We're always adding new events to our Bike Shed Calendar in reaction to what our customers and our members want to do, as well as the big ideas that come to us as a Company, when we think something is missing.
