The Meet

Calne Bike Meet™ is an annual, free to attend event bringing together motorcyclists and the local community.

Our small, Wiltshire town is taken over for the day by every variation of two wheeled machinery imaginable. To find us, use the postcode SN11 0EH, that'll drop you right into the heart of the action.

To give you an idea of what to expect - we start to see the first bikes arriving in the town at around 8am, our first live band takes to the stage at around 10am and the music carries on throughout the day, with the last notes ringing though the town at about 6pm.

That's not the end of it, there are plenty of venues in and around the town that carry on well into the night and Calne welcomes you to stay and make the most of them.

Like many events, for everyone's safety, the Calne Bike Meet was not held in 2020 or 2021 but we're pleased to announce that the meet is returning in 2022. As always, the meet is held on the last Saturday in July which for 2022 makes the date 30th July 2022.

About Us

The first Calne Bike Meet was held back in 2000 when two charity organisers (Calne Rotary) invited a few local motorcycle clubs into the town.

For the first year or two the meet remained quite small, but it didn't stay that way for long and soon grew to be recognised as a major event locally, nationally and beyond.

Being held in the town center, on open public roads makes it a unique event in the motorcycling calendar, and being free to attend allows our whole town to be involved.

Every year our team of volunteers gathers together local clubs and traders to provide an event with something for everyone.

Always on the last Saturday of July it should be in your calendar already!

Join us at the next one for great bikes, live music and a warm welcome to our town.

With rapid growth year-on-year, it was realised that the Calne Bike Meet could be a force for good (as well as a good day out).

As a not-for-profit event it is required that we meet a few requirements, one of those is to have and to honour a charter. It's quite a long document so we'll keep it short here and focus on the best bit - the charities we help.

Each year we look at how we can use your money to do good things and we do that by donating to a local charity, a national charity and a charity with a connection to motorcycles.

Our last event (2019) generated a total of £10,000 for our chosen charities - Freewheelers, Unity Support Riders, MS Society, OpenBlue, and Calne Clean Up Crew.

Representatives from some of these charities joined us at our AGM (Annual General Meeting) and gave a great insight into how these donations will be used; we look forward to seeing the results in future.

Our AGM is an open, public meeting - you're welcome to join us at the next one to hear how the Calne Bike Meet really does make a difference.

Our Sponsors

To make the event happen and allow us to give so generously to our selected charities we ask for help, and every year the fantastic business community in and around Wiltshire answer our call.

The Calne Bike Meet is and will always be a free event. It's for the benefit of the town and the motorcycling community more widely.

However, while the best things in life might well be free, there are many things that aren't and a lot of those are needed to make sure the Calne Bike Meet is a safe and comfortable event for people of all ages and abilities.
