It started in 2002 with an idea by the founders of Bikers Make A Difference - BMAD, Kelvin and Jane Halloran. That idea was to have a social gathering of bikers on Paignton Seafront in Devon. He wanted to raise money for charity and have a good time as well. Which is exactly what has happened.

Paignton Bike Night finally saw its birth in 2003 and has gone on to become the longest running largest regular social gathering of bikers in the South West of England.

Each year on Paignton Seafront we regularly have a mile of bikes parked side by side every Wednesday evening from the begining of June to the end of Sept.

Due to the success of Paignton Bike Nights we now organise a Bike Festival weekend called Paignton Bike Festival which is held on Paignton Seafront in Devon.

Our first Festival was in May 2005 and proved to be a total success not just for our charities but also for all concerned including the many sponsors and traders that attended.

All the money raised at both the Wednesday Bike Nights and the Festival go to charities, which include - Sick and disabled children and their families/carers of Torbay, Devon Air Ambulance and St John Ambulance. In addition we have given to individuals that benefit from extra support. Further details of this can be found on the Charities page


We are all unpaid volunteers here at BMAD and every £1 that is donated by the bikers who attend goes to charity.

We are all very proud of what we have achieved and long may it last.

A big thank you to:

  • All our sponsors
  • Torbay Council
  • Devon and Cornwall Police
  • All that support BMAD and our causes
  • All our volunteers

The success of Paignton Bike Night and the Festival is down to the hard work and dedication of committee members and marshals. We are always looking for volunteers and any help that bikers can spare. It is down to all of us to make it a success.
