THE LARGEST gathering of pre-1931 classic motorbikes in the world are gearing up to take to the roads of Warwickshire.
The VMCC Banbury Run will see some 500 veteran and vintage bikes ride out from the British Motor Museum at Gaydon to Banbury on Sunday (June 16).
The routes they will be taking vary between 30 to 60 miles.
Tom Caren, show manager at the British Motor Museum, said: “The VMCC Banbury Run is aimed at those who enjoy the thrill of riding out with other vintage, veteran and pioneer bikes.
“It’s amazing that the run is now 71 years old and still going strong. With many of the vehicles over 100 years old it’s not surprising that some don’t make the journey to Banbury.”
Viewing areas in the museum grounds will give spectators the chance to see the motorcycles start up as they begin their nostalgic run. Riders will depart from 10am with the last leaving at noon. Riders will begin to return to the Museum from 12.30pm.
