Paignton Bike Festival 2019

  • If you would like to enter any of the Bike Show Categories, turn up on Saturday and Sunday and ask to be escorted to the show area by the Wall of Death.
  • This is an informal Bike Show and these rules are based more on common sense than convention. The intention is to make the classification of the bikes in the various categories, and the judging of the Show, as straightforward and fair as possible.
  • Bikes may be trailered to the event but must be fully functional. Trailered bikes must be unloaded off-site. The owner may be asked to start and ride it. There are no facilities to park trailers or towing vehicles or vans on site.
  • All bikes to be entered in the Show can be registered on the Saturday.
  • Entry forms will be available from the BMAD control tent during Festival opening times.

  • Gates will be open on Sunday morning at 0900hrs for Bike Show entrants ONLY.
  • Judging will take place between 11.00am and 1pm on Sunday. The winning bike in each class will have an Award Notice attached to it by the Judges.
  • All Class winning bikes must be moved to a location to be determined by the Festival organisers between 1.30pm and 2.00pm on Sunday for the award of prizes at 2.00pm. The owner of the bike must be present to receive their prize.
  • Each class winner in the Bike Show will be awarded a certificate and a cash prize of £100.
  • The bike judged Best in Show, selected from the 4 Class Winners, will be awarded an additional trophy and a further cash prize of £900.
