GETTING THERE

For All Racers: There are several public car parks off the main promenade behind DreamLand, you can park in any of these (simple Pay & Display), then follow the signs to walk your bike on to the beach, via the beach ramp, next to the double decker red bus, next to the Sun Deck. No race machines can be started until you are on the sands and instructed by Marshalls to head to The Pit.
Public Transport: The train from London only takes an hour and brings you right to the beach, once you get out of the station, head for the beach and the sound of motorcycles.

Parking: Please use the public car parks in Margate (behind and next to DreamLand are closest). Do not park on the Main Promenade, cars/bikes will be towed by the council.

PROTECTING THE BEACH ENVIRONMENT

Protecting The Beach – Leaving Only Footprints in the Sand

We have been working with Thanet Council over the last year to create an environmental plan that ensures The Mile Beach Race leaves the beach in a better condition than when we arrived and leaves only footprints in the sand. Like The Malle Mile Festival the entire event is plastic free. Before and after the race the entirety of Margate Sands is being combed by our dedicated Marshall team, removing any debris and rubbish from the beach and recycling it safely.

The Malle Environmental Marshals

There will be many electric motorcycles in the beach race and more each year no doubt, but the majority of entries are vintage race bikes powered by engines. We’ve set up several initiatives to keep the beach environment pristine. We have a pre/post race washing station for all race motorcycles to remove any oil before and any any sand after. Our environmental Malle Marshals will also be on hand to watch out for any drops of oil on the beach and they’re equipped to dispose safely of any sand that may be affected throughout the day.

Protecting The Environment – One Bike & One Tree at a time

For all Malle events in 2021, including The Malle Mile, The Mile Beach Race and The Malle Rallies, we are working with ‘The International Tree Foundation’ to plant a tree for every rider who enters the race – with an aim to plant a minimum of 5000 trees in 2021 – off setting and locking away carbon and protecting the global environment. Started in 1924 – learn more about their stellar work in the UK and Africa here: www.internationaltreefoundation.org

Charity Benefit Partner – Two Wheels For Life

In 2021 the Malle team are delighted to announce our partnership with ‘Two Wheels For Life’ & their partner ’Riders For Health’. We are dedicated to raise funds and awareness for this vital charity initiative. For 3 decades the charity has trained local health care professionals to use motorcycles to reach the remotest parts of Africa where other vehicles simply cannot reach, bringing medicine, doctors and the modern digitisation of medical paper based-systems. To date they have reached and supported over 12 million people. We are in awe of their work and the way in which they use the humble motorcycle as a conduit for good and improve health care and life across Africa.
