Moped Mayhem, the wild and wacky endurance race that was the highlight of the old BMF shows in the 1980s and 90s is making its longawaited comeback at the Devitt MCN Festival of Motorcycling on May 15-16 next year. Known for its wild racing, huge grid, madcap machines and raucous atmosphere, it doesn’t get more grassroots than Moped Mayhem*!

The action doesn’t stop there, the 2021 event is packed with new and used bikes and thrilling stunt displays. Not only that, but you can expect the very best live music with evening entertainment for people making a weekend of it. It’s the UK’s biggest outdoor biking event and not to be missed.

Ride the new 2021 bikes

The Festival is all about riding. It’s the only place in the UK where you can ride the very latest 2021 bikes from all the major manufacturers and all in the same place. It’s no exaggeration to say that there are hundreds of test ride slots up for grabs. From cruisers to sportsbikes to learner friendly machines, they’re all just waiting for you to jump on board! No pre-booking necessary, just bring your lid and licence then sign up on the day.

Watch some dirt track racing

The Dirt Track Riders Association will be holding a packed round of proper racing at the Festival – and it’s a sure-fire hit. One of the most exciting (and coolest) race series in the UK, categories include everything from junior (7-11 year-olds) to the dramatic, heavyweight Hooligan class which sees 1000cc+ machines thunder around the dirt oval at the Peterborough venue.

Extreme Bike Battle stunt show

Combining BMX, Trials and a high flying FMX show, the Extreme Bike Battle is one of the most thrilling stunt shows in the UK. From inch-perfect trials and BMX tricks to the incredible aerial displays of the FMX riders, the Extreme Bike Battle is a demonstration of supreme machine control.

Stock up the kit cupboard

If it’s bargains you’re after then the Festival is the place to be. We’ve got acres of retail stands selling everything from discounted clothing to top-notch gear from premier brands.

Classic two-stroke display

Yamaha’s beloved RD LC was 40 years old in 2020 and we’re creating an extra special belated birthday party at the Festival with a two-stroke display, fire-ups and stage talks. Plus, if you turn up on a two-stroke over 125cc you’ll be able to park in the VIP bike park, Elsie’s Shed.
