Bikefest bosses reassure residents

A member of the team running this weekend’s big biking event in the town has written to residents reassuring them steps are being taken to minimise any disruption caused by the event.

LlanBikeFest 15 will be staged at the pavilion this Saturday and Sunday and is expected to attract bikers from all parts of the UK to see the range of attractions it is offering.
In his letter, John Hutchinson of the BikeFest team says: “As you may know, several motorcycle shows have been hosted by the site in recent years, but this a new event, organised by a group of enthusiasts, headed by Llangollen businessman Harry Edwards and supported by the Llangollen and District Motorcycle Club.

“We want to make this an annual, family-friendly festival which will be enjoyed by local people as much as the motorcycling fraternity, and bring real benefits to the Llangollen community.
“We are very much aware of our responsibility to minimise any disruption to local residents and businesses, so noise on site will be strictly controlled and we will be actively urging motorcycling visitors to ride respectfully and responsibly, especially along Abbey Road and through the town.”

Details of attractions and activities at the festival can be found at and on Facebook, but here’s a summary of what’s happening on site:
