Famous May Day Motorbike Run

The Famous May Day Motorbike Run to Hastings is an annual event steeped in tradition and adrenaline pumping excitement. Held on the first Monday of May, this event draws motorbike enthusiasts from all corners of the United Kingdom and beyond. It’s a celebration of the open road, camaraderie among riders, and a testament to the enduring spirit of freedom that defines the biking community.


Dating back to the mid-1970s, the May Day Run has evolved from a small gathering of local bikers into a colossal spectacle, with thousands of participants revving their engines in eager anticipation. The scenic route from London to the picturesque seaside town of Hastings spans approximately 60 miles, winding through some of England’s most stunning countryside.


Upon reaching Hastings, the seafront promenade transforms into a sea of chrome and leather. The beach becomes a canvas for an impressive display of motorcycles, each one a testament to the diversity of the biking world – from vintage classics to sleek modern machines. Enthusiasts swap stories, admire each other’s bikes, and revel in the shared experience of the open road.


This is an extremely popular event so please BOOK YOUR ACCOMMODATION EARLY to avoid disappointment.
