cb-bikefest.jpgToday (August 2, 2013) is day one of the 2013 Cape Breton Bikefest.  Took a ride in this afternoon to see the stunt show and see how many bikes were around.  There was a few around but there will be lots more the rest of the weekend.  I thought I was going to miss the stunt show since it started about 1pm and didn’t get there until about 1:30.  They were in full swing when I got here.  There were five guys four bikes and a guy with two ATV’s.  After I was there for a few minutes the lady on PA said the will concluded this show.  But they didn’t stop.  They kept riding for another 40 mins or so.  Ended up getting some pretty good pictures with my new camera.  There are two sets of pictures (below).  The ones with the bike point of view were taken with my GoPro.  There others were taken Canon PowerShot SX500 IS.

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

Cape Breton Bikefest 2013

cb-bikefest.jpgWe are getting very close to the start of the 2013 Cape Breton Bikefest.  This year it takes place August 2nd to 5th.  Just took a look at the final schedule and it looks like there will be lots of new things going on this year.  That is a good thing because if they didn’t keep things fresh I could see this awesome event fade way.  Some of the new things are:

Pray paint artist Nathan Salmon will be there show how he does this art.  He will so be selling his art as well.

They are have a booth set up so you can have you and your ride picture taken by professional photographer, Ryan Singlar.  Think this is a cool idea.

There will be a bikini bike wash.  I am pretty sure there will be a line up for that and more people taking pictures Winking smile

Like other years there will be a show and shine.  This time will be at Rollies Wharf restaurant in North Sydney.

A new event that looks like it will be fun is the Bike Games.  They are saying it will be various motorcycle games.  Not sure what they are but will need to check that out.

Looking forward to this years bikefest.  Last year missed out a day because I ended up with a migraine.  Will be back with some pictures.  My goal is to take a lot.  Since I have a new camera.

cb-bikefest.jpgIn a bit less than a month way from the 2013 Cape Breton Bikefest.  It will be going on August 2rd to 5th.  Look forward to going ever year.  Every year this is a big prize to win.  The last few years it has been a custom motorcycle.  Not sure if they are doing that again this year.  They do have tickets to win a customized motorcycle trailer.  So thinking that might be the big prize for this year.  You can see pictures of that below.  Tickets for that are $20.   It is a nice looking trailer.  Guessing this years bikefest will be more to the same.  Would be nice if there was something special to draw more people in.  Still going to be nice to see all the motorcycles around.  Have a new camera this year so plan to take all kinds of pictures.

 

Cape Breton Bikefest 2012 Pictures

Went in this morning took check out the 2012 Cape Breton Bikefest.  Want to take a look around, see the Thunder King (that’s the bike you can win, pictures below).  And all so to check out the stunt show.  Was a bit early so walked around for a bit and bought a new bikefest t-shirt.  Didn’t like the look of this years ones so bought a last years one.  Only because it was a nice blue.

It was super hot.  So while waiting for the show to start found a nice spot with some shade.   The show itself was ok.  Each guy at first took turns showing off.  Then they all went at once.  At the end the two of them smoked their tires off.  Do have some crappy video of that.  Will take a look and see what I can do with it.  Below are just some of the pictures I took.

This years motorcycle being rallied at the Cape Breton Bikefest is called the Thunder King.  While I don’t have or found any pictures to share yet but there is some good news.  According to the Bikefest Facebook page it will be unveiled tomorrow (August 2, 2012) in front of the Casino in Sydney around 11:30 am.  Not sure if I will be able to get  there.  Hoping to get some pictures on Saturday.  Think they will have it set up some were in the vendor village.  Which reminds me I need to charge up the batteries in my cameras.

Only four more days till the 2012 Cape Breton Bikefest (August 3rd to 6th).  Look forward to going every year.  This year they are going to have a real stunt team.  Called the Hub City Stunters.  Hoping the the weather is stays nice.  All so hope this year is better organized.  I know things will don’t all ways start on time.  Just as long as it close.  Plan on taking some video this year.  May be the burn out pit will happen this year.  Unlike last year.  Will be back will pictures/video some time after the Bikefest is over.
