This year’s edition, marking the annual event’s 23rd anniversary, will see three days of events at Loma Park in Patong, on April 14-16, and the final day to be celebrated in Saphan Hin, Phuket Town, on April 22.

“This event is one that brings me a lot of happiness,” said Phuket Governor Chockchai Dejamornthanat the press launch on Friday (Mar 24).

“A lot of my close friends are big bike lovers. The big bike community is very intimate and encourages love for one another here in Phuket.”

Bike Week participants will also be making a donation to underprivileged schools and a day-care facility for mothers in prison.

Regarding the event’s promotion of road safety, Gov Chockchai said, “I have never seen a big bike rider without a helmet on. They help us to promote road safety within the community.”
