Hi all. The 2011 bike night lists are now on the website. You can download both the Cruiser poster and the Sports Bike posters as separate files. Thanks for baring with me whilst I got them sorted. Let’s hope the weather is great for all of the bike nights!
If anyone has any pictures from the bike nights, please send them over (add a little write up about the venue/night if you like) and I’ll add them to the site.
See you all there! Graham.

Hi, You will be pleased to know that I have finally completed the 2011 Lincolnshire Bike Night lists.
There are a few new venues and we have lost a few. Due to costs at the Cadwell Park circuit the Colin Willoughby/Ride Right, Novice Track night and the cruise Cadwell will be held on the same evening, though not at the same time. There will be a link from the LBN site to Motorvision to book your places and for more information. Liam Haslem will be gracing the Bottle and Glass with his race set up. The Lancaster Bomber night is booked at the East Kirkby Aviation Center. The Aviation Center is open all day so that you can go along early, have a look round, have a meal in the NAAFI and watch the bikes arrive.
The flyers will be ready to download in the next couple of days but I can reveal that on March 30th:
The Cruiser Night is at Arties Mill at Castlethorpe, near Brigg.
The Super Bike Night is at the new Granby at North Thoresby.

Hi Everyone, I know that you are all waiting for the 2011 lists to come out, I was hoping to get them done this weekend but even after spending 6 hours on the phone and emails a week last Tuesday to the venues, only a couple have replied, so until the venues get back to me I cannot launch the dates on March 1st as I had hoped, you would think that they would jump at the chance of having all the bike night custom and the advertising on the LBN website and Flyers.
On a sad note, one village pub told me that they have had to give their notice in, as the brewery had put the rent up to £500 a week which is more than the takings. So sadly we have lost that venue as well as the locals.

Calling all LBN followers!
As the nights are drawing in now, I have made arrangements with the new (biker friendly) owners of Arties Mill at Castlethorpe Corner in Brigg to have Lincolnshire Bike Nights on Wednesday 20th and Wednesday 27th October, (with plenty of hot food available) these will be, joint superbike and cruiser LBN meetings from 6pm onwards or whenever you want to arrive. Come on down for a natter…
British Summer time ends on Sunday 31st October so that will be it for the Lincolshire Bike Nights for this year, I would like to thank you for your support. I hope that you have had an enjoyable year and liked the venues of the LBN.
As you are all aware we have the new LBN website which will be updated as soon as the new listings are out, so please keep checking back from time to time for updates and motorcycle news.
If you have any venues that you think would be good for LBN in 2011 let me know please.
Also, if you have an event, ride out or bike rally, send me the flyer an we will add it to the website.
The 2011 LBN dates will be out for the 1st of March.

Lincolnshire Aviation Centre at East Kirkby plays host to a bike night every June, in which riders have the opportunity to park their bikes and stand next to the famous “Just Jane” Lancaster Bomber. The highlight of the night has to be when they fire up the 4×12 cylinder Rolls Merlin engines, the sound is awesome!

In 2010 we had over 2,000 bikes attend the event. The entry fee was reduced to only £5 per bike which enabled us to raise a lot of money to help keep the Lancaster and the Museum open. Each year we draw a raffle in which the winners get chance to go inside the cockpit when the Lancaster engines are fired up. This is a unique event /opportunity and there is nowhere else in the world that can you do this. Be sure to come along to the next event.
Here are a few photos from the Lancaster Bomber Night
