Thousands of bikers are expected to come to Ipswich this weekend, as one of the country’s biggest motorcycle shows returns after a year of absence.

Organizers say the Copdock Bike Show has carved out a reputation for itself as an event “organized by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts”, having “earned the respect of the cycling fraternity over the years”.

They say it is also “evolved into a quality motorcycle show that encompasses many eras of the motorcycle and still offers a great day out for the family.”

Like many events last year, the show had to be canceled amid the coronavirus crisis.

But he returns to Trinity Park on Sunday, with 12-time World Trials champion Dougie Lampkin leading a leading squad as the event’s guest of honor.

Unpaid volunteers, who have spent the past 12 months running the show, said it “could be the best yet” – with hundreds of shopping booths and clubs as well as entertainment for the whole family.

Copdock Classic Motorcycle Club President Ady Smith said, “We are really proud to host our 29th show and want our visitors to share the hard work and dedication of the committee.

“If the weather is good, we are convinced that we will also beat our attendance record. “

The Two Brothers stunt team and the Imp’s kids’ motorcycle demo team will put on daring demos at the event, alongside Ken Fox’s Wall of Death – where riders perform stunts at 18 feet off the ground on a vertical circular wall.

Doors open at 9 a.m. Admission to the show costs £ 10 for adults, with accompanied children under 14 being admitted free. Parking for cars and motorcycles is free.

The event complies with government coronavirus guidelines, with contactless payment systems and a mobile Covid vaccine and testing center on site.

The show’s success has enabled her to donate over £ 500,000 to charities and causes over the years, such as Suffolk Family Carers, East Anglian Air Ambulance, Ipswich Hospital and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices .
