Euro Bike 2017
PAST DATES AND TIMES

LOCATION: City Market - 215 Wolfe St
On April 8th & 9th 2017, Raleigh North Carolina will host the Southeast’s largest gathering of European and Euro-inspired motorcycles. The eighth-annual Raleigh Eurobike is a family-friendly event dedicated to the style and sophistication of European mechanical design and the history of the machines that inspire the imagination with a feeling of freedom and a hint of rebellion. There will be rides and bike-related events around the downtown Raleigh area on Saturday. This year’s show returns to where it all started and will be hosted in Raleigh’s Historic City Market on Sunday.
From across the Atlantic Ocean, images of British Rockers hitting “the ton,” rugged Alpine trekkers on knobby-tired adventure bikes and 200MPH thrill seekers on the polished surfaces of Tuscany’s Mugello race circuit have evoked a sense of excitement and adventure that continues at Eurobike 2017. Join your fellow enthusiasts for riding and fellowship on Saturday, then bring out your best ride out for the show in Raleigh’s City Market on Sunday.
Eurobike brings together the best examples of European design excellence and offers something for anyone interested in motorcycles, the motorcycling lifestyle and “speed as art. ”Aprilia, BMW, BSA, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, MV Agusta, Norton, and Triumph are just some of the marques that will be on display. Along with a European-only bike show, Raleigh Eurobike will also feature scooters and café racers from Europe, the U.S., Japan and elsewhere; classic styles inspired by the Mods and Rockers of 1960s England. Prizes will be awarded in several attendee-judged categories. There will also be an auction, DJ, vendor booths, tech talks, food and a swap meet. This year’s event will feature a special custom builders bike show.
Raleigh Eurobike is presented by Do the Ton Triangle, a local group of café racer enthusiasts dedicated to preserving the history, camaraderie, and D.I.Y. philosophy of classic and retro-styled motorcycles and their lifestyle.
This year’s event will benefit InterAct. InterAct is a private nonprofit organization that provides safety, support, and awareness to survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
