Magic Bike Rüdesheim Ride-In Bikeshow

The Bikeshow at MAGIC BIKE RÜDESHEIM always had its own charm and character – and will be staged at a new and weather proof location central on the event site: Inside the party tent of Magic Bike. For this reason, the MAGIC BIKE tent will be equipped with a Custombike-approved ramp PLUS access for Bike Show competitors is possible via the exit barrier opposite of the train crossing. Bike show competitors HAVE to be in possession of the valid entrance band for MAGIC BIKE. As in previous years, the MAGIC BIKE SHOW remains a very compact and fast paced “Ride-In” Bikeshow.
