Classic motorcycles set to return for popular north Northumberland event
More than 100 years’ worth of motorcycling heritage will be on display in north Northumberland later this month.
The Bamburgh Run, a gathering of veteran, vintage and classic motorbike enthusiasts, returns on Sunday, June 27.
The organisers expect over 100 polished and pampered motorcycles to line up for inspection in Ford Castle courtyard from 9am ready for their official departure at 10.30am.
Some of the machines will probably date back to well before the First World War, while even the youngest are likely to have rolled off the production line soon after the Second World War.
Names like AJS, BSA, Norton Panther, Royal Enfield, Sunbeam, Triumph and Velocette will evoke great memories among motorcycling aficionados.
They will make a round trip to Bamburgh and back to Etal in time for lunch. The bikes will once again be put on display. Some riders are likely to be in period costume.
Last year’s event was cancelled due to Covid-19 but, in 2019, 61 bikes took part.
