Inaugural Bega Valley Motorcycle Expo takes off | PHOTOS

With the second annual Bega Valley Motorcycle Expo on this weekend we thought we would take a walk down memory lane and have a look at all the smiling faces at last year’s inaugural event. 

Hundreds of motorcyclists and motorbike lovers camped at the Candelo Showgrounds on Friday night September 16, 2016 ready to experience the inaugural Bega Valley Motorcycle Expo.

The Bega Valley Motorcycle Expo is the brainchild of well-known Pambula biker Glen Cotter. For five years Mr Cotter ran the Pambula Bike Show but last year he decided it was time for a change. 

He cancelled the Bike Show and instead created a bigger and better event with hundreds of bikes, hours of live entertainment, plenty of fun for the kids and a huge variety of food on offer. 

Mr Cotter said the focus for the event was to promote tourism in the entire Bega Valley as well as to support local riders and charities.
