Proudly Sponsoring The Big Bike Bash Mountain Bike Festival Again For 2017

It’s that time of year again when we gear up to get ready for a fantastic bank holiday weekend at the Big Bike Bash! If you haven’t heard of this amazing event already then you’ve probably been living under a rock for the last nine years! For those of you that don’t know, this post should bring you bang up to speed with everything the festival has to offer.

Event Overview

The Big Bike Bash is a fun long weekend event that benefits charities including UK Youth. It’s open to all ages (families encouraged) and involves bikes, bands and beer…It takes place on the late August Bank Holiday weekend (26th – 28th) at Avon Tyrrell, UK Youth’s activity centre near Bransgore in the New Forest, Hampshire BH23 8EE. The event started back in 2007 and now attracts over 750 people. So far it’s raised over £60,000 for charity some of which has been spent on building new facilities and activities for young people who use Avon Tyrrell. The festival is truly unique with over 50 bike races and challenges for all ages and abilities, three incredible nights of live music and a beer festival, a mountain bikers heaven!
