Hell of a bike show in Albir, Costa Blanca

The ninth Costa Blanca custom bike show rolled into the town of Albir on sunday, September 1 to the sound of roaring exhaust pipes and live, very load rock music.

Bikes arrived from as far afield as Romania, lined up in the streets with chrome as far as the eye could see.

The event was organised, as in the years before, to support a local charity, by the 20 members of the Costa Blanca Hells Angels under the banner of The Custom Bike Show. This year, working with the Alfaz Del Pi town hall and Local Police, all monies raised will go to providing school books to those families not in a position to purchase them themselves.
