The record and record deck are set to be present at a Bike Shed taking place 29 August in London. Fans will get to hear the record, and a handful of the featured bands will provide live entertainment. The album is entitled Racing the Record, a nod to the fabled British cafe racer practice of selecting a record on the jukebox, then zipping out on your bike to ride a predetermined course before the song finishes.

The record features a number of up and coming British rock artists and only 500 copies will be pressed.

“Rock ‘n’ roll music was a major part of the cafe racer culture," said Triumph UK General Manager Paul Lilly. "In fact, In fact, music... forms part of the scene’s folklore."
