Calne is revving up for its annual bike meet on Saturday, with live music, guest speakers and a group ride in store.

The event, which welcomed more than 4,000 bikers to Wiltshire last year, is free to attend and invites every variation of two-wheeled vehicle.

The first bikes are expected to arrive in the town centre from 8am, with live music from local bands kicking off at 10am and continuing until 6pm.

“The event atmosphere last year was electric. It was our busiest year yet and we even had some electric bikes to show off,” said Calne Bike Meet chair Jennifer Jennings.

Bikers can also take part in a group ride for £5, which will loop around Calne, Avesbury, Royal Wootton Bassett and Lyneham. Tickets for this should be bought in advance.

For non-riders, the day will offer over 80 stalls, guest speakers from 2-5pm, and a chance to win a VIP experience at British Superbikes 2023.

All donations will raise money for Mental Health Motorbike, Freewheelers EVS, Wiltshire Air Ambulance and National Association of Bikers with a Disability.

Calne’s first Bike Meet was set up in 2000 and has since gained Europe-wide recognition.

“We expect thousands of people visiting the event,” said Ms Jennings.

“We raised £8,000 last year, but I hope that this year will be even bigger and better,” she added.
