If some of the winter rally’s are anything to go on there will be a million hits on the thread and get40 ppl go and 5000 ppl say they are going and then have something come up to stop them going
But that is just my opinion

Winter rally's are always the least attended.

If the same people attend this year as attended last year 500 is nearing the mark.

Get out there and sample the event.


Cheers Dave.

Ticket sales for the 2019 Festival have just gone over 300, it's going to be a great weekend if last year is anything to go by

Done it twice one time 20 quid second time 20 quid
Missed last year due to price being increased and now it is double that I can camp in wales for two nights with water available and toilet blocks available
And showers for16 to 20 quid but because it is ABR badged is 20 quid a night to camp in a field with winibagoes and trailers cos most turn up in vans or cars with trailers and campervans so not really a bike rally I’m just saying so many on here are fair weather riders not Adventure bike riders I’ve see Harley riders turn up to winter rally’s it’s a shame that ppl say they are coming but then don’t

It costs a heck of a lot to put on an event like this, and there's so much more than just camping at the ABR Festival. We've got live music, a bar, an adventure riding circuit, an adventure park, access to an enduro circuit, test rides, tuition, and much more. If it's not for you, it's not for you, but at every ABR rally or Festival I've been to the amount of bikes has far outnumbered the campervans, so to say that 'most' turn up in cars of other four-wheeled vehicles is wide of the mark.
