Erskine Motorbike Meet started a few years ago, about 5 or 6. Four bikers turned up at Erskine Hospital for a tour around the main home located in Bishopton. After the tour, they said they wanted to do something to help fundraise for Erskine.
So they decided on a bike meet. The first year, 30 bikers turned up, next year, 100, then 300. In 2010 1000 turned up and this was the year I got involved. For various reasons the four friends couldn’t continue with their part of the organising so I was roped in to help Erskine with the organising. 2010 was also the first year that the BBQ, live music and family entertainment were introduced and Arriva provided the shuttle bus that ran from Paisley Gilmour St. to Erskine Hospital, for the non-bikers.
