The first Milton Charity Bike Show Committee was formed by a small group of local riders. We saw the opportunity to have an event within the town for bike riders and enthusiasts to get together for a fun and family oriented day. The event would also raise funds for a local charity.
The first show was held in Kendall Park, Ulladulla, on Sunday, 30th October, 1994, and was catered by the Apex Club. There were 94 bikes entered in the show and many locals and tourists attended. Most importantly we raised $500 for Adam Wakefield who was our first recipient.
Since then we have successfully run this for fifteen years as an annual event that was continuing to grow in size and reputation. So why did we stop? Basically we needed a break and even the venue, Milton's Star Hotel, was undergoing some rejuvenating.
So now, we are currently redesigning the website and discussing the possibilities for the next Milton Charity Bike Show, which is being eagerly anticipated by locals and tourists alike. It is a great family day that gives many with a common interest the opportunity to get together, as well as attracting tourists to Milton. But most importantly it raises money to benefit children in need.
