We are pleased to announce that we have officially become the main sponsors for Calne Bike Meet which will take place on Saturday 28th July 2018.
Calne Bike Meet started life as Calne Motorcycle Meet and was the brain child of two local motorcycle enthusiasts and two Rotarians back in the year 2000.
The basic idea was to bring trade to the town and to “put Calne on the map”. The first year started small with just a few bike clubs and some private motorcyclists attending but that soon changed as word got around.
Just 4 years later in 2004 the event had grown with vintage, classic and veteran bikes coming in large numbers. Then there were the specialised clubs like Bath Classics, BSA, classic Japanese, BMW, Virago, Royal Enfield and many more, suffice to say, that every make and style of motorcycle comes to Calne in their thousands on the last Saturday of July every year and attracts many more thousands of spectators, filling the town centre for the whole day.
Now it has fulfilled its original aim and certainly put Calne on the map, as people come from all over the country, with some arriving from the continent. The main reason for this success is the fact that it is based in the town centre and is the only free event of its kind in the country, and the bikers are made to feel welcome.
We wish, not only to sponsor, but to participate in the days events, we will have gazebos set up and will be joining the ride out. It’s really important to us to spend time with the local community which we serve and enjoy spending time with.
