BikerMatch is proud to present the FIFTH edition of our annual Keep It Simple Stupid (K.I.S.S) rally.
With over 500 visitors last year we're hoping the 2015 edition will be just as crazy and successful.
Based on the idea of going back to basics, enjoying each others' company, riding out on the bikes, having a dance and socialising with members you may often only meet online.
Our rally is absolutely a FAMILY-FRIENDLY event. That means you're welcome to bring the kids and come in a car, no problem.

Don't forget that we will be at a NEW LOCATION this year! Check the "MAP" tab for directions.

As always the event will contain lots of silly games, surprises and laughter.
Music entertainment will be in the form of 2 bands plus a weekend DJ. Don't miss our surprise comedy dance competition -)

As a celebration of our 5th rally, 8th year online and 70,000 members.... this year's rally will be FREE ENTRY!!!
This is still a BM (full-)members-only event with only one guest allowed per member. You may bring more than one child but please inform us in advance via

This year the KISS Rally will be FREE ENTRY to all FULL members of BikerMatch who are listed on the GUEST page of this event.
So just to confirm, all you need to do is...
1) Add yourself to the attendance list:
2) Upgrade your BM account before the 11th September:

You may bring one guest, also for FREE. However, if you want to bring more than one child we ask you to please email us first with yours & their details:

On the 11th September we will print a list of those on the Guests page of the event who have a FULL account on BikerMatch. This list (with profile photo and real-name) will be held at the rally and you must check-in when you arrive.

This year we have been lucky enough to secure a weekend at SQUIRES bikers cafe in West Yorkshire.
We believe that this location is not only central for most of the UK but also provides some wonderful biking scenery.
One of the fields and the function room will be reserved for rally visitors only. Entrance to both the camping and entertainment restricted to our guests only.
The function room has a maximum capacity of 250, so first-come first-served. Arrive late and you're still welcome to enjoy the other entertainment and meet BM members in the other rooms.
There are plenty of toilets and showers for all members available 24 hours.
First aid will be available at the reception and via indicated qualified first-aiders.
Food and drink will be available all day from Squires at reasonable prices. Please do support the cafe who are kindly hosting us.

There will be TWO ride outs, both suitable for ALL skill levels.
One will be a short trip (approx. just over 1 hour) to Seaways Cafe. Route will be provided at the rally.
The second one will be a longer trip going over to Hawes by Pateley bridge and Wharfedale then back by Layburn. Also for all levels of rider, and will take up the larger part of the Saturday daytime

Friday night band: BAD DOG (Headline act!)
Saturday night band: Speed Weasels
There will be a supporting DJ all weekend keeping the festival beats flowing.

As always there will be plenty of games, surprises and humour, planned and unplanned.
Prizes will also be available including BM memberships.
If you'd like to organise anything in particular please get in touch with the team via
Anyone willing to donate prizes for the raffles & games please also get in touch via email asap.

I need a lift to this rally, but for the days only,I can't camp overnight. If anyone can oblige please send me a message and we can discuss the cost. :-)

Sandi, if you dont manage to get a lift, there is a train station in Sherburn. Alternatively Garforth has two stations. I think all are more or less the same distance from Squires. Perhaps someone will offer to pick up up from one of these. Trains run on York, Selby lines. Hope this helps.

Thanks GBNP, I will look into the trains if I don't get a lift offer.x

Hi Sandi - I'm after a lift too but, if we don't get any offers, I could always drive up in the car and pick you up on the way if that would help? Jx

Thank you Julia, that's very kind of you. X

Hi Sandi - I know it defeats the object turning up to a bike rally in a car but, in the worst case scenario of no lifts being available, at least we'll get there! Jx

OK I need to time this just nice then, how many you sold so far ?

But can I have curry sauce instead of peas ?

I'll sort mine out on Tuesday.

There are no tickets as such. It is more of a reference number for admin purposes.

I would recommend cars are parked in front of Speedstyle and not in the main carpark as that gets busy with bikes on Saturdays and you may find your car blocked in. Also the car park is being closed off late Saturday night for a big event on Sunday morning.
For those of you not familiar with Squires. Speedstyle is their on site accessory and clothing shop.
