24th to 26th June. Billed as the UK’s greatest celebration of adventure biking, the Adventure Bike Rider Festival will return this summer, and organisers have promised their best event yet. The TOMCC have a discount code for weekend tickets that can be used until the end of this month - TOMCC5 - for 5% off.
Set in the magnificent grounds of the Ragley Hall Estate on the 24-26 June, the show will open its gates to thousands of like-minded riders for three days of biking action and festival entertainment.
This year’s festival will be a far-cry from any antiquated ‘park-up and shop’ biking rally. As ever, the show promises to deliver a premium visitor experience, with a host of on and off-bike activities for visitors to enjoy.
Returning for 2022 will be a packed schedule of masterclass sessions, off-roading schools, inspiring guest speakers, live music, and crowd-favourite, the AX41 Adventure Trail. As with last year, this exclusive 20km off-road trail will take riders through the stunning grounds of the Ragley Hall Estate. The trail presents visitors a perfect way to experience off-road riding, but in a friendly, non-competitive environment. The trail will also offer a beginner’s loop, something new for 2022, which will be an ideal introduction for riders looking to build some confidence before tackling the larger track.
The REV’IT! stage has also seen a significant overhaul with a full line-up of the UK’s best party and tribute bands playing throughout the weekend. Performances from Detroit Soul Collective, Texan Peacocks, Dr Feelgood, Definitely Mightbe (Oasis), Let There B/DC (AC/DC), Fleetwood Mad (Fleetwood Mac), CODA (Led Zeppelin), Who Are You (The Who), Quo’d (Status Quo) and The Stones (Rolling Stones) can be seen over the Friday and Saturday of the festival.
Within the Arena, will be dozens of the best motorcycle and adventure brands with the likes of BMW, Ducati, Harley Davidson, Honda, Suzui and KTM already confirmed. The Arena delivers the perfect opportunity to shop the latest gear and speak to industry experts; help getting you ready for your next adventure.
Facilities within the festival have also been improved with over fifty catering venders added, serving a variety of street food options to visitors throughout the weekend. The tradition of providing reasonably priced beer at £3-a-pint will continue to be honoured too.
Throughout the campsites and festival grounds will be fully serviced toilets and hot showers, and for those opting to not camp in a tent there are glamping and nearby accommodation options available.
One of the major draws of the festival is the incredible and welcoming atmosphere which offers a real sense of community. A lot of effort from the organisers has gone into providing a quality experience, delivering an event that they too would be happy to attend. When thousands of people with a common interest come together to make new friends and create memories, something special happens.
Founder of the ABR Festival, Alun Davies, stated, “I’ve always viewed the ABR Festival as a feelgood celebration of motorcycles where we are all (that’s industry and public) in it together, and that’s what we are going to continue to deliver. Following on from the success of the 2021 ABR Festival, the aim is to keep growing the event at the magnificent Ragley Hall, and provide outstanding facilities for the industry and public alike. It was mentioned in 2021 that the ABR Festival had the vibe of Glastonbury with motorcycles. And, with that in mind, we’re working flat out on the 2022 Festival which will feature more live music, more festival attractions, and more riding opportunities. In short, I’m determined to make the ABR Festival a premier motorcycle event we can all be proud of.”
Tickets for the 2022 ABR Festival are still available but are selling fast, with every previous festival selling out weeks in advance. Three-day weekend tickets, with two nights of camping included, are priced at £129. Tickets can be purchased directly from the ABR Festival website.
