Motorcycle extravaganza returning to Aberdeenshire

The north-east’s biggest motorbike festival will rev up for a return to Aberdeenshire this weekend.

The Grampian Transport Museum in Alford will host the Grampian Motorcycle convention tomorrow and features an appearance by the Purple Helmets Motorcycle Display team.

Stunt rider Steve Colley will join the headline act and perform an array of tricks and routines, which seem to defy the laws of gravity.

And special guest, Steve Parrish, a former motorcycle and truck racer will be in the Bon Accord club marquee for autographs and photography sessions.

These acts will be supported by various displays, including supermoto racing and classic bike parades as well as moped mayhem racing – with over fifty bikes racing on the track at once.

Away from the main arena, there will also be a trade show throughout the day in addition to various entertainment for children and plenty of food outlets.

GTM marketing and event’s organiser, Mark Jeffery, said: “This is the biggest motorcycle event in the north and it will have a fantastic arena show on display.

“Some of the favourites, such as the moped marathon will also be returning which is a lot of fun.

“It will be great to see it all come together and we are expecting some big crowds on Sunday. We’re hoping the weather will hold off, but a bit of rain never seems to bother bikers too much.”

The museum itself, complete with a display of Guy Martin’s recordbreaking machines, is half price for the day.

Admission prices are Adults £10, Children £5, Family £25 and Concessions £7. The gates are open from 10am with the convention officially starting at 11am.
