Bikers have a new favorite show in the UK and that’s Manchester Bike Show. This major show is still in its infancy with its first edition held at the start of the 2010s. Within that decade, it’s been on an upward trajectory. The UK has always had a vibrant biker community and Manchester Bike Show meets their needs to not just stay on top of trends, but also a place to build a community with many bike clubs making their presence known. The stars of the shows are the bikes themselves – well above 750 machines that include restored classics, dirt bikes, tourers, race machines and street fighter models. Exhibition stands additionally cover every other product group that any biker with some self-respect needs – leathers, helmets, accessories, parts and services. Depending on what the program at the edition is, there can also be book signings and launches. 


Manchester Bike Show rolls around at the end of March each year for two days over the weekend. The bike show is put together by ClassicShows and it’s based at the EventCity in Manchester, UK. The show welcomes everyone from professionals involved in bike design and making to bikers and bike enthusiasts from all over England. Doors open at 09:30 am in the morning and close at 17:00 pm in the late afternoon on both days. Bikers have the easiest time getting to the exhibition centre as there’s a free dedicated bike park directly outside as well as a helmet park for jackets and helmets. EventCity itself directly taps into the city’s infrastructure with several train station within the vicinity, Urmston being the closest. Being close to Trafford Centre also means bus lines to the city centre at all times of the day. Manchester Airport and Liverpool Airport can both be reached in under half an hour via car.
