We are delighted that the annual Vintage Motorcycle event, "The Bamburgh Run" will return to Etal this summer.
The event is held by the Ashington-based Reivers Section of the national Vintage Motor Cycle Club (VMCC) together with the Marston Sunbeam Club and Register (MSC&R) with the purpose of riding vintage motorbikes - including some of the earliest types from around 1910 - on the quiet roads of North Northumberland where part of the route passes along the road between Seahouses and Bamburgh Castle. Around 40 entrants are expected and the Club welcomes the public to visit, view the bikes and chat with the owners.
The bikes will arrive from around 9.30am with tea and coffee, at 10.30 (ish), when all entrants are ready, they'll set off on a run of approximately 4 hours, returning around 2.45pm. The owners are a great group of guys and welcome visitors to come along and join the group at these times in the Hall and/or to wave bikes off as they leave, earliest machine first, at around 30 second intervals.
The bikes make for a spectacular sight - and sound! - and kindle nostalgia and excitement amongst motorcycling and vintage fans of all ages.
