The show is in aid of the Great North Air Ambulance

Held at Kirkbride Airfield on the Solway, scores of bikers and their families are expected to enjoy attractions including top-class riders, a drag strip, music and trade stands.

The Hit the Road bike show is held in aid of the Great North Air Ambulance and will include Championship Drag Racing with the National Sprint Association, exhibition riding by Steve Colley and UK FMX, a leading freestyle motocross team, plus dirt buggy racing, quad bikes, and demonstrations from Moto Gymkhana.

Bike owners will also have the chance to take part in ‘Run what you Brung’ and take their own motorcycles on to the racetrack.

Live music will be provided by local bands including Thirteen Stars, Crooked Dice and Five & Dangerous at the White Heather Hotel in Kirkbride on the Friday and Saturday nights.

Organiser Martin Ashfield, of Cockermouth-based J&M Events, said he couldn’t wait for the weekend to arrive.

“We’ve got two packed days of entertainment which bike fans will love,” he said. “It’s the perfect family event too, with loads of activities for the children.”

Martin has joined forces with Lloyd Motorcycles of Carlisle to offer the chance to win a Honda CB500F bike. Tickets cost £2.

“The raffle and auction will be fantastic too – the Honda CB500F is a stunning bike,” Mr Ashfield added.

“All the profits from the event will go to the Great North Air Ambulance, a charity which, as every biker knows, provides an invaluable service all over Cumbria.”

Camping will be available for anyone interested.

The bike show takes place on May 11 and 12. Day passes cost £7.50 and under 16s go free. Weekend camping tickets cost £15 and include access to the live music on both nights.
