Mach 2 - Bike Festival

Mach 2 - Bike Festival
It's one thing to meet world famous motorcyclist Nick Sanders but did you know you can pop to his place for a party?

This year Nick hosted Mach 2, the aptly named successor to Mach 1, the 'biker festival' at Machynlleth, Powys. The 'Mach' duelling as an obvious reference to speed for the petrol heads but it is also the fondly used shortening for Machynlleth.

This idyllic setting is absolutely perfect for an event which ticks all the boxes in the provision of biker friendly, social excellence with healthy helpings of real ale and cider with delicious treats from Caroline's Kitchen to keep your stomach happy. A huge bonus and testimony to Nicks passion for the area and local business is that the town is on your doorstep and those attending are encouraged to explore Machynlleth and sample the delights. Indeed, as you soon discover on the organised 'treasure hunt' you are signposted to get in to the sticks and hunt out many of the little coffee stops and cafes in return for scoring points.

Mach 2 is plenty big enough for the abundance of bikes, tents, campers and trailers which pitched up and there is enough space around you that you'll feel your privacy is respected and you can 'stretch out'. You will also have no problem when it comes to queuing for food and refreshments or visiting one of the many portable, yet luxury loo's which are scattered liberally around the site. Nick & Caroline have ensured there are more than adequate amounts and they are kept a close eye on with regular cleaning so no loo roll shortage occurs!

A variety of live acts keep you entertained during the evening with a liberal dose of fire jugglers thrown in for good measure.

Walking around the bikes revealed a broad diversity of machines and number plates with riders coming from all over Europe to take part in a little R 'n' R along with some that made the journey specifically for Nicks event. With such an event right on your doorstep you would be foolish to miss it, and if you eventually do take the plunge and go along you will be kicking yourself for not doing it earlier.

We are definitely looking forward to Mach 3, in fact stop-press, Nick has announced Mach 2.5 to be held on the last weekend (Bank Holiday) of August). Hosting a smaller number of visitors Mach 2.5 will be sure to sell out fast.

Festival fun for the biker family!

Legend Nick Sanders and some updates on 9-Länder tour.
As 9-Länder approaches we want to remind people that if you want to book one of the few remaining spaces then payment needs to be made as soon as your spot is secured! This is due to us now being within 6 weeks of the tour starting - so if you don't want to miss out on this brilliant tour, you need to be quick!

We have added a couple of extra surprises this year making this 9-Länder even more memorable.

Don't hesitate to email of call us to secure your place.

On a separate note, we had the pleasure of bumping into motorcycling's answer to Ranulph Fiennes and iconic British motorcycling legend - Nick Sanders at Damerells in Cornwall last week. A true gentlemen and his stories had us in complete stitches as is always the case. If you ever get chance to see Nick please do, and if you are in Wales on your bike then a visit and stay at his Exhibition Centre is a must! His new book 'The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man. Vol 1' is essential reading for anyone with a taste for adventure.

Good luck with 'Mach 1' Nick!

More exciting Nick Sanders news to follow in due course...
