SATURDAY 10TH JUNE 2017 – ROADKILL RIDE TO NABD CHARITY BIKE SHOW, FRETTENHAM
We are supporting the charity bike show for NABD at the Touching The Cloth Rally, Frettenham by doing a ride-in from Roadkill HQ. Last years’ event attracted a fantastic field of bikes, and this year promises to be even better. Great prizes for eight show categories, be in it to win it! On the Rally site: A fab line up of bands during the afternoon and evening. Chef prepared menu (at rally prices!)- the food is awesome as we can testify from last year, served in the Hall – proper plates, tables and chairs! To take part in the ride & enter the field is just £4, all of which goes to NABD. Stay on for the evening and enjoy more bands and soak up the rally atmosphere for a small additional cost. Don’t forget, if you are already at the rally for the weekend, you can trundle up to Roadkill and join us for the ride-in for no charge!
Please be at Roadkill by 13.00 for departure approx 13.40. It is around 20 mins ride from Cromer. This event is live on Facebook, search for “Roadkill Ride to NABD Charity Bike Show”.
Please note Roadkill cafe and shop will be running a reduced service from 1.30 until closing time due to two out of four of our key staff taking part in the Run/Rally.
SUNDAY 13TH AUGUST 2017, FROM 10.00 AM – CROMER CARNIVAL BIKE & TRIKE CAVALCADE & SHOW
This will be our fourth Cromer Carnival Bike and Trike show, and we are hoping to beat our fantastic 2016 turnout of over 200 bikes and trikes. The cavalcade will depart from Roadkill HQ at 10.30 am for the carnival field, it is a 15 minute slow ride to the field, or you can head straight there. All bikes and trikes are welcome, whether you want to take part in the show or not. It all makes for an interesting field of bikes and adds to the interest. Winners will be selected following a public vote. Roadkill cafe will be open from 9.00am prior to departure, for coffee and bacon rolls, please arrive in good time if you would like refreshments. All bikes, trikes and scooters welcome, if you love your wheels someone else will too! Prizes for Best Chop, Best Custom, Best Classic, Best Streetfighter, Best Sports, Best Trike, Best 125 or under. We are also running a stall selling Roadkill merchandise, and will have a selection of stock from the shop for sale. Drop by and say hello! Also on the Carnival Field, one of the biggest American and Classic Car shows of the year, as well as lots of stalls, bar, and all the fun of the fair. Entry is FREE, just turn up on the day. Don’t miss it!! This event is live on Facebook, search for “Cromer Carnival Bike & Trike Cavalcade & Show”.

WEDNESDAY 16TH AUGUST 2017 -ROADKILL ROCKS CROMER CARNIVAL PARADE
We will lead the Carnival Parade round Cromer on carnival night. The last five years have been hugely successful with plenty of crowd-pleasing bikes and trikes (around 100 in 2016) and we have had brilliant feedback. We are sure the next one will be even better! Whatever you ride, please come along and join us, this is not about show bikes, it is about taking part in a fun evening, so whether you are on a 50cc or a 1500cc, all welcome.
Fancy dress optional but it is advised, you are missing out if you don’t! Most of you had a go last year, the entries were awesome. Lots of people dug out their novelty onesies, comedy wigs, or even pyjamas, as well as plenty of home made efforts, and last minute eBay purchases! It all counted and made it a fun event. Also balloons, cuddly toys, bunting, and flags decorating the bikes all went down a treat. We rocked carnival night!
Please be at Roadkill by 6.00 at the latest, the roads are closed from 6.30pm and after that you will be denied access to the event for safety reasons. We do a slow lap of the town ahead of the parade, we are in front to keep moving and stop those air cooled engines and classic clutches overheating! We will exit town via the Holt Road where the marshalls will part the crowd barrier to allow us to pass, then a quick re-group in HomeBase car park (just up the hill on the left) to put our helmets back on if not wearing one, prior to heading home, or back to Roadkill for a burger or bacon roll. Rock On!

***If you are attending the Cavalcade or Carnival Procession ride, please note the following.
- These events are organised between ourselves and the Carnival Committee to an agreed format. Please check details with us prior to departure.
- Please park your steed facing the exit at Roadkill. With up to 200 bikes on site, turning at the last minute takes time and delays departure.
- Front and tail end positions will be marshalled by riders selected by us prior to the events.
- NO burnouts, donuts, wheelies, general showing off – (Obvious health and safety risk)
- NO over/undertaking other riders or lane-changing (ditto)
- Keep up with the lead bikes, NO GAPS, NO STRAGGLERS. We should stop/start as one group.
- Do not allocate yourself as a marshall, all positions will be advised before the event.
- If you decide not to wear your helmet, it is at your own risk. Roadkill Customs does not endorse your choice.
- Be aware of making TOO MUCH noise. A bit of revving and tooting your horn is fun, winding up your bike to ear-splitting decibels is not.
- Behave responsibly and safely, your behaviour reflects upon yourself and our business.
