Road Runs

After the club was established in 1987 it was a natural progression to incorporate a Road Runs side. This started with one annual organised run but now has a selection of organised runs catering for a variety of bike ages added to the calendar and even the occaisonal weekend event.

The Road Runs section is very sociable and although we prefer it if you ride a classic of some description we will still speak to you if you don't! Some members prefer classic British bikes, whilst others ride older Italian, German or Japanese bikes. We don't mind as long as you appreciate classic machinery and understand that modern and classic machines have different needs and characteristics when being ridden together on a Road Run.

Presently it is all hands to the pump organising road runs and we have a sub committee who do just that, organising runs to suit all bikes and riders.
