PRESS RELEASE: 26/07/2017 – SUPPORT AND SAVE THE BIKE MEET
The Calne Bike Meet committee was formed 5 years ago when a public meeting was held to save the local motorcycle meet from collapsing. It saw a resurgence of local support to form a new committee and to make the event the largest free motorcycle meet in Europe.
During the last 5 years the event has gone from strength to strength and is now a major success. In some ways, it grew too quickly and in recent years without the infrastructure of enough volunteers we had to make the hard decision to cut back part of the event, our weekend entertainment and camping, to make it back to a highly successful one-day event.
Our event has again grown with local, national and international attention. We have visitors each year from all around the UK, Europe and parts of the world! Our website has 5000+ visits each month with numbers soaring into the 10’s of thousands near the event.
To enable us to run this event safely, and to aid in its growth once more, we need volunteers to continue to support this amazing event. We need people to join the committee and help to not only keep the event going but to make it an even bigger success.
Sadly, if we do not get new volunteers at this year’s AGM we may need to decide to close the event entirely. Please show your support and keep this event alive. Become a committee member and help make a difference to people’s lives, raise thousands of pounds for local & national charities and be proud, like I am, to put on an fantastic motorcycle event in our town.
