The Mile - Kefington Hall
The Bike Insurer travelled to Kefington Hall, Orpington, at the weekend to attend The Mile, an event hosted and backed by luxury motorcycle accessory and clothing brand, Mall – London.
Kefington Hall, a stately home completed in 1769, is arguably one of the grandest locations we’ve ever been to for an event but provided a perfect location for a throwback event that grabbed the headlines.
Moto Polo is a bonkers sport that originated in France in the 1900s and, as the name suggests, combines motorcycles and polo.
The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible by putting a large leather ball into the oppositions goal, all while being sat on a 50cc-250cc motorbike.
What else was there?
As well as Moto Polo, which grabbed out attention, there were plenty of other displays and events for spectators to sink their teeth into, including a mile long spring between Custom bikes and pre-1980s classics, the Hill Climb along a slalom track and an exhibition of classics, customs, choppers and cafe racers too.
