Thousands of people are expected to visit Boston Bike Night tomorrow (Thursday), which will once again be held in the Wide Bargate area of the town.

Touted as one of the biggest motorcycle events in the county, Boston Bike Night offers something for all bike enthusiasts, starting at about 6pm.

The event is organised by the Boston Motorcycle Riders Association (BMRA) as the perfect way to combine a hobby with having fun.

“The Bike Night is now in its 16th year and has continued to grow and is now one of the biggest and best of its kind, attracting thousands of riders from all over the country,” said a spokesperson.

“The event will see riders of motorcycles, scooters, trikes and sidecars descend upon Boston’s Bargate End filling the car parks and the surrounding areas with a spectacular array of machinery, including all types of makes and models, from sports bikes and tourers, to the classic varieties.

“Not only is the event a Mecca for riders and fans of motorcycles, it is also a great family night out - last year it was estimated that over 1000 people visited the Bike Night.

“Started in 1990, the Boston Motorcycle Riders Association has been meeting every Tuesday night ever since, but their main event, Boston Bike Night, is their annual celebration of all things two and three wheeled - as long as it has an engine.”

As well as entertainment in the form of live bands, there will also be a variety of food stalls and around 40 trade stands, featuring displays of the latest machinery, tyres, clothing and accessories.

There will also be several specialist stalls.

This year there will be further entertainment in Pescod Square, with musicians, motorcycle simulators and hopefully open cafes and shops.

The BMRA will have its own stand and will be encouraging any potential new members to sign up and join them on the night - anyone is welcome to join and will receive a joining pack.

The BMRA is well-known for organising activities throughout the year, such as ride outs, barbecues and fun nights, and an annual toy run to Pilgrim Hospital at Christmas.

The group is based at the Hammer and Pincers during the winter months and ride outs begin from the wide bargate car parks during the summer months.

If you would like more information about the club please visit their stand at the event, and perhaps even support them by buying a new T-shirt.
