Prescott Bike Festival 2013: Sunday 7th April 2013
|Tuesday, 15 January 2013 09:49|
Following the huge success of the two previous events, the third annual Prescott Bike Festival on Sunday 7 April 2013 will be even bigger and better with many more bike manufacturers involved, a large display of historic, modern and race bikes in the paddock, more bike clubs than ever, a galaxy of celebrities and lots of entertainment for all the family.
As an event to raise awareness and funds for the Nationwide Association of Blood Bikes and one of its member groups, Severn Freewheelers, the first annual Prescott Bike Festival in 2011 attracted in excess of 5,500 visitors and raised more than £52,000 for charities. The 2012 Prescott Bike Festival attracted more exhibitors, had even better displays, was visited by more celebrities and raised more money for charities.
After attending last year, MotoGP commentator, Steve Parrish, said: "I had a really great day at the Prescott Bike Festival. I was like a kid in a sweet shop with other like-minded petrol-heads. Riding a 220mph grand prix Ducati up a hill that I hadn't seen before certainly got my attention. Then I was given the keys to a brand new Morgan three-wheeler to take prize winners for a run. I can think of no better way to spend a Sunday."
The Prescott Bike Festival 2013 will build on the success of the previous years by introducing a number of new features. These include a 'Happy Hour' an hour of activity on the hill featuring rare race machinery and factory bikes – in fact, anything that's special, different, rare or exotic. This is no static display; every entry to Happy Hour will Run the Hill Not only will spectators be able to get close to some really special kit, they can hear it fire up and Run the Hill. It's also the time to watch celebrity riders take to the hill.
At Prescott Bike Festival 2013, spectators also get the opportunity to experience the famous Prescott hill climb course. Purchase a “Run the Hill” ticket in advance (hurry, they're selling fast!) and you can ride the hill once in the morning and then again in the afternoon. You can carry a passenger and even do it in fancy dress – as many people did last year.
Festival organiser, Gordon Downie, says, “Obviously the unique opportunity to ride the hill is a major attraction, but the Prescott Bike Festival promises so much more. With all major motorcycle manufacturers in attendance, fans will get the chance to see all the major models up close and personal, a host of trade stands as well as famous racers and great lunchtime entertainment too. The festival really is set to offer something for every motorcycle fan.”
Other features of the Prescott Bike Festival 2013 include:
• Dealer stands from the likes of Ducati, Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Enfield, Triumph, AJP, Harley, Victory, BMW and KTM
• Demonstrations throughout the day by 10 times British Trials Champion, Steve Saunders
• A demonstration of the exciting new motorcycle sport, Moto Gymkhana
• An opportunity to meet celebrities including local racer, Scott Redding (the youngest rider to win a Grand Prix), Nick Sanders (who has motorcycled around the world seven times) and Chris Hodgson (current British Supermoto Champion)
• Thrilling passenger experiences on a variety of machinery
• Plus more than 100 trade stands
There will also be many displays of bikes of all ages and types including:
• Ducati Sporting Club's Desmo Due one-make race series
• The Classic 50cc Racing Club – 50cc racing machines and their riders from the early beginnings around 1953, through the classic period and up to the time when the class was dropped from GPs in 1983
• Leominster Classic Club
• The National Chopper Club – showcasing extreme custom bikes
Musical entertainment will include rock band, East of the Sun, and (returning by popular demand), 1950s inspired rockabilly, rock & roll and R&B band, Josie and the Outlaw.
Set at one of the most prestigious hill climb venues in the UK against the beautiful backdrop of the Cotswold countryside, the Prescott Bike Festival aims to provide something for everyone; a relaxed family atmosphere, a huge variety of entertainment and a rare opportunity to ‘Run the Hill’ on your own motorcycle.

The Nationwide Association of Blood Bikes is the umbrella organisation representing 12 regional blood bike charities, all providing a motorcycle-based, free delivery service to the NHS; moving vital medical supplies, blood and pathology samples from medical centres and hospitals throughout the UK. Recently NABB member groups have become involved in the transport of frozen human milk from the donor to the milk processing hospitals. This has been a real lifesaver due to the necessity of very premature babies having intolerance to anything but human milk.
Run entirely by volunteers, NABB member groups have over 1500 active members with a fleet of 55+ emergency response vehicles. All NABB riders are trained in the movement of medical essentials and operate from individual regional charities but with a common goal – to alleviate suffering and reduce the funding pressures on the NHS. NABB was formed in 2010 and is chaired by Gordon Downie, from Gloucestershire.
Severn Freewheelers is the regional Blood Bike group operating in Gloucestershire, Hereford & Worcester and North Wiltshire. Over 70 volunteers help Severn Freewheelers carry out a much-needed service. Severn Freewheelers runs four BMW R1200RTs and a Honda ST1300, all are emergency response equipped and the members handle some 3,500 call outs per annum, covering 140,000 miles.
