The biggest UK old school BMX event of the year is almost upon us!! So we thought it would be good to put up a post with details of the event and some pointers for anyone coming along for the first time. Here are some words from the organisers…
For SatNav’ers, the following postcodes have been used in the past to get you there ( or near! ) : MK15 9PA or MK15 9LZ but if you come along Tongwell Street you’ll see the entrance of the track……see map…
The Track and visitors camping area will be open from about 7am on Saturday morning… THE TRACK IS NOT OPEN ON FRIDAY!.
There will be 4 porterloo toilets, these have been hired for YOUR convenience, please use them with care and make sure you leave them clean as they are needed for the whole weekend.
There will be a food van, selling burgers, bacon rolls and so on, be aware we have no control over the prices so don’t expect 80′s prices. We will supply a huge skip which will be situated on the right hand side as you come in to the track area, please make sure you bag all your own rubbish and put it in the skip provided, you may all pack up and leave on Sunday afternoon but we have to make sure the place is clean and would like to get home before 9pm!
We will put rubbish bags around the track area… please use them!
Saturday will be the usual mix of chilled out buying, selling and looking at gorgeous old bikes (Oh and drinking of course). The Track will be open for free practice but you have to wear gloves and a helmet or you will be asked to leave the track for safety reasons. There are a couple of things we traditionally do on Saturday and we thought it would be a good idea to put some rough times to these so people don’t miss them.
Jump Comp – around 4pm
Lake Ride – around 6:30pm
Cinema – around 8:30pm onwards
Sunday will be Official Show N Shine registration, this will be from 9am through to 11am down in the main event arena (See Stidds, ED209 and Myself), then the racing will start around 11:30am.
The racing will be pre-reg only so keep your eyes open on Rad BMX.
For all those awesome people who have bought T shirts, Mugs, plates and so on, these will be available for pick up over the weekend.
