Get ready for the classic motorcycle show

MOTORBIKERS prepare for a charity show.

The Aire Valley Classic Motorcycle Club, formerly based in Steeton, Girder Fork, hold their Big Bike Sunday.

A range of classic and modern machinery will be on display at the event, at Skipton Auction Mart on Sunday 26th June.

All owners of two- and three-wheeled vehicles, from 50cc mopeds to trikes powered by car engines, are welcome to exhibit.

“The event is where classic and modern motorcycles are showcased by their owners in hopes of receiving a ‘best in’ accolade,” a spokesperson said. “There have been over 100 motorcycles on display in previous years, spanning a century of manufacture.

“The event can be covered if the weather is bad.”

Exhibitor motorcycles must be in place by 10:30 a.m. and the event opens to the public at 11 a.m. The prize giving will take place around 3 p.m.

There will be refreshments and stalls.

Admission is £3 for adults, with accompanied under-16s admitted free.

Proceeds will go to charities including Oxenhope Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The last show, in 2019, raised over £3,500.
