Stevenage crew commander, Mark Burgess, of the Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: "We are really looking forward to hosting what we know will be the first of many rider safety events run by the fire service in Hertfordshire.
"We want BIKEFEST 2009 to be a fun event that carries a serious message from the fire service - we want to ride with you, not to you."
Entrance to the event is free and there will be ample parking at The John Henry Newman School next door.
