BIG BIKE WEEKEND ~ ABOUT US

Our Mission Statement: The mission of Big Bike Weekend is to provide a fun, safe, and entertaining motorcycle event for riders of all types of motorcycles and their peers, friends, and families; to educate motorcycle safety; to provide rides that showcase the beauty of our area; and to enrich the community by providing a quality activity in which to participate.

BBW History: Big Bike Weekend is a motorcycle event that caters to bikers, from dual sport, scooters to street bikes, AND their families. Established in 2000, this year's event will mark Big Bike Weekend's 14th year in Redding. Big Bike Weekend is now a California nonprofit, tax exempt 501(c)(4) corporation. We look forward to expanding the activities for riders and non-riders while making charitable contributions to outstanding nonprofits who serve our community. We appreciate the support and confidence of the City of Redding in facilitating the transition of this event ot a nonprofit organization.

Supporting the Community: The BIG BIKE WEEKEND COMMUNITY FUND established at the Shasta Regional Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt public benefit corporation. 100 percent of the proceeds from our raffle sales to the fund. The fund was established to provide grants to qualified organizations. Donations to the Big Bike Weekend Community Fund are tax deductible.

The Committee: The Big Bike Weekend committee is made up of a group of men and women in Redding, both riders and non-riders, who spend countless hours planning and working at the event for everyone to enjoy! This committee works on a volunteer basis, receiving no payment or compensation for the time they spend planning this event. As the size of the event grows, so should the committee. Each year, the current committee is charged with finding enthusiastic leaders to head up sub-committees and volunteers that cover each aspect of the event.
