Calne Bike Meet

July 28

Welcome to the Calne Bike Meet 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” as the founder members put it to me.

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.

At the end of 2017 the committee gave away £9,000 to its nominated charities after a very successful event. We would like to thank you all for your kind donations to make this happen.
