Bikes BBQ & the Blues
Auckland's only 'bikers' day out.

Bikes, BBQ & the Blues is exactly that. It's all about YOU and your BIKE, hearty food and BBQs.
To set the scene in centre stage are the bands and blues artists and of course hundreds of other bikers with all types of motorbikes to enthuse about and admire.
Every kind of motorcycle is welcome, from modern, custom and bobbers to vintage, veteran and classic.
With the promotional support of Solid Gold FM the event will be bigger in 2011, the biggest rally of Auckland, Waikato and regions' bikes you will see in one place.
Visit the Bikes, BBQ and Blues website for more information.
The event is a not-for-profit festival raising funds for charity - Rotary NZ Christchurch Earthquake Appeal and Malenoma Foundation of NZ. Event organisers are DEVORC (Devonport Riders Club) and The Rotary Club of Devonport
To add to the experience there will be exhibits by motorcycle retailers, bike clubs, collectors and related industry specialists.
Make it an afternoon out with your mates, your club or your favourite pillion. If you want to come as a club, attend for free and create your own exhibit you are very welcome, but please contact Devonport Riders Club first to register and understand a few simple rules.
While in Devonport visit the historic Fort Takapuna on site, Devonport village, the new navy museum and take a ride up Mt Victoria and North Head. There is no restriction on entry and exit times and re-entry is permitted.
There's a nominal $10 entry fee per motorbike which enters you in a prize draw, a free BBQ sausage and allows you to park in the event area and qualify for other spot prizes. There is no charge for riders and pillions. Alcohol will not be on sale.
