    Motorcycling cutters, I am involved with the organisation of a charity event. Firstly I would like to invite every one of you to attend the day – it is free. But at this stage I am asking if any of you who are local and running businesses would like to have a stand at the festival to sell your wares, or get your company name involved by sponsoring the event.

    Please PM me if you would.

    Event details: 25th June 2017. The Market Place, St Ives, Cambridgeshire. 10 am – 4 pm. Motorcycle clubs attending, a lot of bike parking available. Show bikes competition with trophies for the winners. Raffle with great prizes. Trade stands. Dealer stands. Food and coffee stalls. Town centre pubs. Stage with live bands during the afternoon. Spitfire fly past. MAGPAS helicopter fly past, (if not attending emergencies!) ALL proceeds go to MAGPAS Air Ambulance and The Poppy Appeal.

    My photos from 2014 and 2015 festival:

    Updates on our show:

    Steve Parrish will be there, he will be giving the show bike trophies in the afternoon.

    We also have Rhys Lawrey attending, the youngest man to circumnavigate the globe. He's in the Guiness book of records for that. He made the journey on a Triumph Tiger. Rhys will be having a chat with Steve Parrish about his adventure.

    And we have a stunt bike display from the 2 Brothers. Which will be thrilling!!

    The St Ives Festival of Motorcycles committee just hangin' with Mr Steve Parrish, ACU motorcycle racing champion, veteran of inumerable TT races, holder of the Guiness Book of Records for Fastest Speed Achieved in Reverse (85 mph) and the most successful truck racer ever.

    Also, infamous prankster:
    He is permanently banned from the Chinese administrative region of Macau after blowing a brothel up with a home-made bomb made out of firecrackers, when several of his fellow riders were being 'serviced' inside.
    He burnt down a toilet block in Poland.
    He once posed as a medical doctor to allow John Hopkins to fly from Japan to the Australian GP.
    He upset his fellow village residents by registering PEN 15 as his car number plate.
    He once sabotaged a Mini Moke belonging to Team Bike, (a group of benefactors, mechanics, racers, journalists and helpers) by undoing every single wheel-nut to the last thread, in a revenge prank. The prank was discovered shortly before the vehicle was going to be driven off.
    He once posed as Barry Sheene in a qualifying session when the two were team-mates, as Sheene had turned up to the session with a hangover. Parrish put on Sheene's helmet/overalls and qualified on his behalf, then put his own clothing back on and qualified further down the grid as himself.
    Parrish owns an ambulance and has been seen using the ambulance to park on double yellow lines with the doors open in visits to his local bank.
    He also owns a fire engine and once hosed down the inside of a friend's packed pub on a Sunday afternoon.
    Steve appeared in Beadles About pranked by one of his best friends. Beadle launched a military assault in the back garden of the ex-champion motorcycle racer.

    And he's going to spend the afternoon with us at the Festival on Sunday 25th June. :eek: :peace: :D

    Here is the video from St Ives Festival of Motorcycles 2017. The money is still being counted, but we must have raised loads for MAGPAS Air Ambulance and the Poppy Appeal, because more than 4,000 motorcycles turned up!
