The First Annual Pipeburn Meat Burn & Burn

Posted on April 26, 2011 by Andrew in Other. 52 comments

Here’s something that’s been hanging on the ideas board for a while now. A Pipeburn ride day. Yes, you read that correctly. Us. You. The builders. The bikes. Great views. A killer ride. Got your attention now? Thought so. But that’s not all – not by a long stretch. See, if we get our shite together, we’re looking to carbonise some meat to boot. It simply does not get any better than this, gentlefolk. Understandably, some of you may have lost your senses right about now so take a moment, breath, lay down for a while if need be and when you’ve recovered your composure read on…

So just how do you get you and your bike into this magical mystery tour of internal combustion and smoking rubber? It’s easy. Just respond in the affirmative with a comment below. Anything will do, but make sure you use a valid email address, as that’s the one we’ll be sending you all the details on when we get closer to the big day. Also let us know if you’ll be bringing friends. We’ll need to know (roughly) how many of you are coming.

All bikes are welcome, and by that we mean ALL BIKES. There’s no damn bike snobbery going down on our watch, so whether it be a Brough Superior or a Postie bike, bring it. Likewise, new riders are welcome. We’ll mostly be ambling at a leisurely pace so there’s no need to feel that you’ll be left behind.

Apologies to all our international readers who may find it a little, um, difficult to attend – rest assured we’ll be taking lots of photos on the day so it’ll feel like you were right there with us sucking down the black sausages and noxious fumes. More updates to follow.

PS. Just to be clear, we are being a touch secretive on this one simply because we want to be able to control the numbers. If we just came out with all the specifics and then we have 250 riders turn up on the day and we start to block traffic, it’s us the boys in blue will come looking for. Thanks for your patience…

UPDATE: That’s it! We’ve filled all our spots & we’ve closed the comments. For those who managed to get a place, stay tune for more details via email. Thanks everyone for joining in. See you all soon.

    I'll just point myself SSW across the Pacific, get enough speed up to bounce off of Hawaii, and see you in a couple of hours.

  • That's a great idea !

    Sounds brilliant! I'll see if I can borrow Evil Knievels Snake River Canyon "bike" if he'll let me. That worked for him didn't it?

    Hey "Z", I'll be bouncing off Hawaii too so we'll have to co-ordinate our rides. I'll be the guy that looks like Slim Pickens at the end of Dr. Strangelove!

  • Andrew

    @Badino The image is mine. Thanks for the feedback, but I can't take all the credit. It's a hack of a very famous poster designed in the 1930s by Swiss graphic designer Otto Baumberger called Motor Comptoir. Read more here.
