Manufacturers will have huge test fleets of 2018 machines available, you can even try riding off road. 

The majority of manufacturer test rides at the Festival take place out on the stunning Cambridgeshire roads that surround the showground, many of which you’ll recognise from MCN road tests! Test rides are always a popular and there’s no pre booking, just remember to bring your lid and your licence. Don’t have your licence yet? No problem, some of the manufacturers will be bringing along machines suitable novice and restricted licences too.

Visitors are required to book their test rides directly with the manufacturer on the day - arrive early as it will be first come, first served. 

Riders are required to bring their own leathers, gear and helmet.
