Poole Dream Machines

Poole Quay with crowds, motorcycles and a tall ship alongside Quay.

About

Poole Quay Dream Machines, sponsored by Coles Miller Solicitors, is a fully marshalled event, with a £1.50 entry charge per night. It is a self-funding event.

The event creates a unique, exciting atmosphere as bikers and spectators enjoy a relaxed evening on Poole Quay. The backdrop of the quay and harbour offers the perfect location and there is a great selection of waterside cafes, bars, restaurants and food kiosks offering refreshment, many with bike night specials on their menus.

When the main quayside area becomes full there is a second arena at Harbourside Park available.

The popular Bike of the Night competition takes place every week. On the evening a different judge selected by BCP Tourism selects their favourite bike on display. The winner receives some brilliant bike related goodies courtesy of Muc-off Ltd
