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.

As is now tradition, over the course of the week the event will host a variety of activities and entertainment performances, including car contests, classic motorbike exhibitions, exhibitions of the latest bike models, Miss and Mr Phuket Bike Week pageants and many sales booths offering bike accessories.

In the evenings will be concerts and performances by international artists and leading Thai artists.

“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.”

With this year’s event theme “World Ride Together”, Phuket Bike Week organiser Wittaya “Sumon” Singkalah noted, “I would like to promote this event and make it a world class activity, as well as attract more tourists to visit Thailand.”

In driving its social responsibility themes, Bike Week will also include an activity to help restock sea animals as well as its “Safe Riding – Helmets on heads; lights on bikes” campaign.

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.”

Phuket Bike Week contributes largely to Thailand’s growing tourism industry, with the support of Phuket province Phuket Bike Week Tourism Authority of Thailand Tourism and Sports Phuket Provincial Administration Organisation, Patong Municipality together with Ride Thailand magazine, as well as Phuket bike riders clubs.
