LOOK: Fourth annual Rugby Bikefest rolls into town

Rugby Editorial 22nd May, 2017   0

REVVED-UP Rugbeians enjoyed some wheelie good fun when Rugby Bikefest roared into town on Sunday (May 21).

The festival, now in its fourth year, was kick-started when hundreds of bikes rode in to the town centre.

Festival-goers queued up to try the Wheelie Machine – a motorcycle simulator giving wannabe-riders a virtual taste of life in the fast lane.

Among other activities at the festival, organised by Rugby First and Rugby Borough Council, were displays, stalls, children’s activities, and refreshments.

Local bands further revved up crowds as they took to stages in Market Place, Caldecott Park and Mr Robinson’s on Church Street.

There was a guest appearance from former British Street Bike Champion and six times winner of the Bulldog Bash, Dave Baughan.

*FESTIVAL-goers can share their photos and videos of the event via a new mobile app, which is being test-launched by music management company Big Help Management.

The new app, called Amondo, is designed to gather all the highlights of events in one place.

Visitors can get in the picture by downloading the app and posting their Bikefest photos to any social media sites with the hashtags #rugbybikefestival and #rugbyobserver.
