Join #ride5000miles for a chance to win tickets to MCN's latest show
“We’re trying to make the Ally Pally the biggest ride-in show in the country and we want as many bikes to come as possible,” said MCN’s editor Andy Calton.
“This is going to be more than just a normal show, it’s part bike meet, part celebration, part sprint race, and R5K-ers are going to be central to this. We’re even branding up the parking area as the #ride5000miles Bikepark.”

“MCN’s #ride5000miles is all about getting out there and committing to enjoy your bike more,” adds Calton. “If you haven’t signed up to our online community, you should. It is a great place full of routes and inspiration. Nearly 7000 MCN readers have signed up this year and for some it’s been key to them falling in love with biking again.
“The Ally Pally is a brilliant destination for bikers and we want people to come from far and wide. All you need to do is a name your best route there between 30 and 500 miles and you’ll have a chance to win a ticket. The routes can be as crazy as you like; as long as they’re fun to ride.”
There are a host of attractions at the show. The main event is the indoor Supersprint where top stars and bikes will be pitched head-to-head. Some big names will be taking part, with Carl Fogarty, John McGuinness, James Whitham, Chris Walker and Dougie Lampkin all doing battle.
There is also a fire-up paddock where some amazing machines will burst into life, plus there’s all the latest bikes, classics, customs and loads of great retail bargains.
