Guest speakers announced for ABR Fest 2022

Inspiration. Sometimes that’s all you need to fuel the motorcycle trip of a lifetime, and it’s something you’ll find in abundance at this year’s Adventure Bike Rider Festival. On the weekend of 24-26 June, we’re putting on a show to remember and we’ve invited some very special guest speakers to share stories of their adventures with you.

It is an absolute pleasure to announce that Billy Ward, Elspeth Beard, Austin Vince, Simon and Lisa Thomas, Sam Manicom, Spencer Conway, Chris Scott, Henry Crew, Kane Avellano, Jack Groves, Ben King, and Ken McGreevy will be gracing the Adventure Stage with their presence. This is your chance to hear stories from the most inspiring people in adventure motorcycling.

Meet Elspeth Beard

Like the training scene in Rocky IV, these talks will amaze and inspire you, with each one telling a remarkable story of its own. Between them, the guest speakers have ridden hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of miles around the world, visited most of the countries on Earth, experienced the ecstacy of two-wheeled travel when everything’s going well, and the pain when it goes wrong.

Whether it’s hearing Elspeth Beard talk about her remarkable record-setting journey around the world in the ’80s, or Simon and Lisa Thomas recalling tales from their 17 years on the road, the Adventure Stage is the place to be. You really don’t want to miss this.

We’ll have more information on the speakers and their talks as we get closer to the Adventure Bike Rider Festival. Talks will be running from late morning to early evening on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 of June.

Entry to see the guest speakers on the Adventure Stage is completely free to all Adventure Bike Rider Festival goers, and there’s still time to get your tickets, which start from £75.

With masterclass sessions, campfire tales, an on-site 20km-long adventure trail, manufacturer test rides, trade stands and plenty more going on, it’s going to be a truly unforgettable celebration of adventure motorcycling. CLICK HERE to book your ticket now and find out more.
