One month to go: Bike Shed London 2018
Words: Scott BlackBurn Photography: Drew Deas
Once again this year London's Tobacco Docks will be filled with the usual array of beautiful bikes put together by Bike Shed for three days in May. Just under a month from now the folks at Bike Shed will welcome thousands of excited bikers and motorheads into their amazing venue so they can feast their eyes, ears and stomachs.
In the past the show has welcomed builders and companies from all over the world along with musicians, tattoo artists, barbers, and plenty of beer. Sponsors and supporters for this year's show include Death Machines of London, Royal Enfield, Triumph, Indian Motorcycles and Mutt Motorcycles. In between gawping at bikes you'll be able to go and get yourself tattooed by one of the artists from Ushuaia Tattoo and Monsters of Art, then get yourself tidied up by one of the guys from Thy Barber. Throughout the whole venue there'll be a range of live music, mostly blues and rock, to keep you entertained and provide a brilliantly cool soundtrack.
The builders this year are as international and diverse as ever. Making the trip to the docks this time are, to name a few, DNA Filters from Greece, 2 Loud from Taiwan and Bad Winners from France. It's a show that'll make anyone with any level of interest in motorcycles and motorcycle culture smile the whole time they're there. This year promises to be no exception to that rule and should be well worth the trip where ever you are.
