The 4th annual Sowerby Bridge Classic Bike Show took place on the 29th May 2016 with excellent weather and excellent bikes!

The event was held at The Wharf in Sowerby Bridge, just off the main street. The event started from 10.30am and finished around 4pm.

We started the show in 2013 with a great atmosphere despite the continous rain throughout the day. 2014 and 2015 bought better weather and mopre visitors together with a free cinema showing bike films throughout the day and providing somewhere for our bike entrants to sit and relax.

The Show was bigger and better than before...........

We had a Russian Speedway Bike formally owned by a runner-up in the 1994-2002 word championships. This 2 valve Jawa engined bike specially built for the sport has 28mm spikes in the tyres to ensure a grip on the ice.
