The Bike Fest Aim

The Shiny Side Up Bike Fest is a Big Day Out for motorcycle riders with the aim to bring the New Zealand motorcycle community together and share best practice.

We strive for people to leave the event better riders than when they arrived. We achieve this through promoting rider skills, full protective gear and technologies such as ABS. The event utilises well known, respected personalities and experts to empower the riders with their knowledge and experiences via demonstrations, presentations and workshops.


The Shiny Side Up Bike Fest has been an annual event in Kapiti since 2016. Momentum and popularity has been building each year with a 94% satisfaction with the day and 97% confirming they were likely to attend again.

Auckland Transport approached the organisers in 2016 requesting the rights to hold a Shiny Side Up event in February 2017. This interest spurred on the creators to take the Shiny Side Up Bike Fest on tour, further enhanced with the Talk Series. Evening gatherings where the Shiny Side Up guru’s and personalities share their stories and experiences to a wider audience as they travel between the Bike fest locations.
