The Bamburgh Run is a glorious annual event for vintage motorcycles, this year departing from outside Lady Waterford Hall in Ford village.
Vehicles will start arriving from 9:00am and will be waved off in timed pairs from 10:30am. In the interim you can check the vehicles out, chat to the motorcyclists, and wait for the noise to build as entrants rev up their engines in preparation for departure, though some machines flatly refuse to start. The event is great fun and a must for anyone with a passion for vintage motorcycles.
Entrants consist of solo and sidecar motorcycles and three wheelers manufactured by December 31, 1930, plus those machines manufactured thereafter whose original construction includes Girder Forks. The cut off date is 1946. The event is open to all riders, drivers and passengers. Riders can either tackle a 50 mile or a 75 mile route, but if previous years are anything to go by some of these old motorcycles may refuse to start at all!
The Bamburgh Run had to be cancelled last year and to celebrate its return the organisers have decided that female riders and overseas riders will have free entry to the run.
