Fylde Bike Meet St.Annes

Fylde Bike Meet takes place EVERY Monday evening, come rain or shine, hail or snow; including bank holidays (even Boxing Day !), from 6.30pm until approximately 9.30pm in St Annes on Sea  Town centre. Many local Cafe’s stay open for us, to enable those attending to grab a bite to eat and a well earned drink (non-alcoholic, of course !). We have exclusive use of the two main Town Square Car Parks, thanks to our good relations with the local Council, Police and Traders. These provide dedicated, secure bike parking, with marshalls on hand to keep an eye on your pride and joy while you wander around the other bikes or simply have a brew with friends. Please remember that the meet is entirely NON-PROFIT MAKING.

All those who give up their time to become involved in the Organisation and Marshalling do so without payment. All profits from the meet (via collections/raffles/events etc.) are given to our 2 nominated charities : North-West Air Ambulance and Fylde Community Projects Fund. We are currently working hard to raise funds to both keep the Meet running smoothly and make a decent donation to our charities. We hope your support will help us keep things going for many years to come.

Fylde Bike Meet was founded on a rainy 13th June 2005, in St. Annes Square. Despite the appalling weather conditions at least 40 bikers turned up to see what was going on ! Nowadays, fine weather sees numbers in the hundreds attending, topping 500 on busy nights – making us one of the North-Wests most popular meets ! The meet was the brain-child of Councillor John Coombes, leader of Fylde Borough Council and himself a biker. Since then, the meet has undergone major changes. Councillor Coombes has had to step down from his position as organiser of the meet due to council commitments and a committee has been elected to oversee the meet. Our best turnouts are usually for our Blackpool illuminations’ runs, where we collect money for charity and lead huge trains of bikes up Blackpool promenade.

So……..what are you waiting for ? Get yourself down to St.Annes ……………………… what else would you be doing on a Monday night ?!!
