Grimsthorpe Castle

The Mile is a celebration of the motorcycle in all its forms, with a non-stop programme of very inappropriate racing. A celebration of the British summertime, the motorcycle culture, with world class bands and live music from the Main Stage, the Expedition Exhibition, The Art Of Machine art show, brand exhibitions, The Midnight Mile electric race and the now legendary Mile After-Party.

After 6 years in London a new home for The Mile with larger grounds for all of our guests was inevitable and we can’t wait to host the 2023 Mile again at the uniquely beautiful Grimsthorpe Castle and their 6000 acres of stunning grounds. The deer park and ancient oak forests will play host to The Mile in 2023 and beyond. Grimsthorpe Castle is located exactly 100 miles North of London and in the centre of Great Britain, leading The Mile pilgrimage to the heart and centre of the country.

As ever, each year we strive to push The Mile further than ever before, to this end we’re introducing new races and new race classes for 2023, ensuring a lot more racing action, less time in the pits, more parties, more exhibitions, more LIVE music, fun and a lot more motorcycles! This year 1000+ motorcycles will race in our series of inappropriate races over The Mile festival weekend – and since the very first year our ethos has not changed; everyone is invited to join and race anything on 2+ wheels and no one is expected to win.

The Malle family and our team of dedicated Malle Marshalls will be putting their heart and soul into hosting the festival and we can’t wait for the first race flag to drop. We want to thank our amazing community of riders, our supporting brands, encourageable friends, family and volunteers for making The Mile what it has become over the years – The Mile is yours, Viva La Mile!



THE MILE METROPOLIS

 

One of the greatest things about The Mile is the friends you meet along the way. To collaborate with people, with amazing artists, makers, brands, builders, photographers is what Mile life is all about. You’ll find all of these in The Mile Metropolis. As an exhibitor and a brand partner you get to go deeper into The Mile experience than anyone else.

The Mile is a cultural festival at it’s heart, if you have something that adds to the Mile culture, let’s collaborate and bring it to the community.

The Press


“ONE OF THE MOST ENGAGING MOTORCYCLE EVENTS YOU COULD WISH TO BE A PART OF”

Built Magazine

 


“Gentleman rogues and ladies of unquestionable valour, dazzle the crowds with their impromptu two-wheeled riding skills in an idyllic setting. What’s not to love?” 

Dutch, The BikeShed


“An Idyllic, high-society garden party with motorcycle drag racing!”

Classic Bike Magazine

“Probably the most British event on the motorcycling calendar” 

MCN – Motor Cycle News

 


“Great people, on beautiful bikes, doing things they were not made to do! The Mile cannot come soon enough.” 

Ben Bowers, Movember


“Tucked away in the English countryside in the shadow of a manor house is one of the UK’s best kept secrets – the Malle Mile”

For the Ride – Triumph

A sort of three-day country wedding for oddball motorbikes with a sprinkling of a drunken fun fair, festival and grassroots motorsports thrown in for good measure.

Rowan Horcastle, TopGear


“It reminds me of bike meet-ups in France and in the fifties, just good fun with good people who love bikes”

John Giles, ISDT Champion

 


“The formula has clearly worked: race places at The Malle Mile now sell out within hours.”

YOUR HOSTS

Who is Malle?


Malle London is a family company that was started in 2012 by two ‘designers/ cousins/motorcycle-disciples’ Robert Nightingale & Jonny Cazzola.

After a decade of working in the design, engineering and innovation space and after many trans-continental motorcycle adventures; they decided to set out to create more robust and British utilitarian Adventure Accessories – to enable motorcyclists and adventurers to go further and in-turn inspiring them to appreciate and travel the world more.

In 2015 Malle hosted ‘The Malle Mile’ in London, an intimate and inappropriate motorcycle race which has doubled in size every year and has been a sold out event for the last 3 years.

In 2017 they hosted ‘The Great Malle Rally‘, the longest inappropriate motorcycle rally ever attempted in great Britain. Exploring over 1500 miles from the northern tip to the southern tip with 100 custom/classic/cafe motorcycles. In 2020 they hosted the first ever ‘Mile Beach Race’ Sprint on Margate Sands, expect to see new motorcycle adventures, rallies and celebrations happening in Britain and beyond in 2022.


 

The Mile Charity Partners

 


PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT – ONE BIKE & ONE TREE AT A TIME.

For all Malle events in 2022, including The Malle Mile, The Mile Beach Race and The Great Malle Rally, we aim to be plastic free, providing stainless steel water bottles and non-plastic solutions etc. for all riders. We are also working with ‘The International Tree Foundation’ to plant a tree for every rider who enters The Mile races – with an aim to plant a minimum of another 2000 trees in 2022 – off setting and locking away carbon and protecting the global environment. In 2021 we planted 6139 trees, a modest forest!

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 2022 the Malle team are delighted to announce our partnership with Two Wheels For Life. For three decades they and their sister organisation Riders for Health have ensured local health professionals can use motorcycles to reach the remotest parts of Africa where other vehicles simply cannot reach. By providing appropriate motorcycles as well as ongoing maintenance, training, digital data collection and access to fuel, health professionals are now able to reliably and efficiently deliver medicine and other services to over 47 million people. We are in awe of their work and the way in which they use the humble motorcycle as a conduit for good, improving healthcare and life across Africa.

We are dedicated to raising funds and awareness to support their vital mission. Learn more about their amazing work here: www.twowheelsforlife.org
