We’ll have dozens of bikes from all the major manufacturers prepped and ready to ride at this year's MCN Festival, including the new Yamaha MT-10, which will be flown in sepcially from the press launch in Spain just for the festival!

The test ride route takes in some stunning Cambridgeshire roads with a mix of fast A roads and twisty country lanes. Perfect for all bike types.

Some of the Triumph models will also be available to ride in the ‘Try an adventure bike’ area, if you fancy yourself the next round-the-world adventurer.
