Thousands of motorcyclists flooded into Calne from across the county to attend the town's annual bike meet.

The Calne Bike Meet 2023 was held on Saturday, July 29, and saw riders of every type of two-wheeled vehicle visit the town.

Jennifer Jennings, the chair of the annual meet, was thrilled with the turnout and claimed that the event had been bigger and better than its previous version.

She said: “It was a very busy day for us, it was definitely bigger than last year and we’ve had a lot of good feedback.

“We don’t know the total number of attendees but there were bikers from all over the country, and from our local towns, so there was a wide-ranging audience.

“I would like to say thank you to all the marshals and volunteers who made it a really good day.”

Riders representing around 30 bike clubs visited throughout the day and were treated to over 80 stalls and speakers, and a group ride around the area.

Money was raised for several charities including Mental Health Motorbike, Freewheelers EVS, Wiltshire Air Ambulance and National Association of Bikers with a Disability.

The event raised £8,000 in 2022 and Ms Jennings is hoping for an even bigger total once this year’s donations have been counted.
