A Not-For-Profit Organisation
The objectives of BMAD (Bikers Make a Difference) are to raise money for public benefit in providing funding to sick, disabled and disadvantaged young people up to the age of 19 in the TQ area; and other charities that also provide services to the local TQ communities which directly or indirectly benefit young people.
Money Raising Events.
Our main and most well-known events in the UK are the BMAD Bike, Beer and Music Festival held annually on May Bank Holiday and our weekly Bike Nights from June to September.
Our 2018 Zom-B-MAD Festival – 5th to 7th Oct
The clock’s ticking. We are pleased to announce our new event at the Lady’s Mile Holiday Park in Dawlish. Another full weekend of festivities and fun at Zom-B-MAD. See the separate page for details.
Paignton Bike Night takes place on Wednesday nights between June and the end of September on the sea front at Paignton. Gates open at 6pm.
Bike Night is intended to be a place to get together with like minded people and at the same time raise money for charity. Having said that, the event has become very popular with both locals and tourists who are just amazed to see so many bikes in one location and is now becoming an unofficial tourist attraction during the summer months.
Bike, Beer & Music Festival
We have put together an incredible line up for our main Festival in May 2019 with some of the top bands in the UK & Europe. Gates will open as usual at 6pm on Friday 3rd May 2019. There will be thousands of bikes arriving along the sea front and plenty to see all weekend. Music will finish at 11pm. Saturday the 4th May sees the gates opening at 10am and the same on Sunday 5th May with a full programme of Bands every day across two stages.
