The Mayday Run is not an organised event, – it is a spontaneous movement of people – there are no official start times or routes you can join a ride not just from Locksbottom but from meeting points all over the southeast including the Ace Café in North London and Rykas Café at Box Hill - or you can use social media to start your own ride-outs – ALL bikes, trikes, quads and those who love motorbikes whatever your age or gender are welcome. It’s a great FAMILY DAY OUT.

The traditional Mayday Run route follows the A21 / M25 /A21 but there are plenty of alternatives. Please be aware – you will not be alone on these routes - TENS OF THOUSANDS of bikes will be joining you so please consider the Sussex Police Advice - View here

NEW FOR 2018 – Town Centre Local Market

The community of Hastings have been welcoming the Mayday Run for over 40 years. But despite the massive influx of bikers and motorcycles some smaller traders have missed out on the opportunity to let everyone know the great stuff they have on offer. So for 2018 a few select market traders will be joining the great value BIKE KIT stalls and fantastic food in the town centre to bring you a mix of Jewellery, fashions, fishing gear, tools, engineering and even Falconry. Take the time to wander around and explore – you might be surprised what you find.
