Annual Veteran Vintage & Classic Motorcycle Run

19 09 2014


This has been an annual event for more than 15 years for veteran, vintage and classic motorcycles organised by Mr & Mrs Eric Stone and helpers. This year’s event is on Sunday 28th September and commences from Fore Street, Chard. After signing on in the Kelly Leigh Dance Studio, the first motorcycles leave at 11 a.m. for an 80 mile trip across some of the most scenic locations around Chard. It is a gentle ride across Somerset and Dorset, taking in some picturesque scenery with a lunch stop near Wincanton and returning to Chard for a cream tea.

In the past the motorcycles ranged from a 98 c.c. Brockhouse Corgi as used by the army to an 850 c.c. MV Agusta and a 2003 model Triumph Bonneville. Others include the famous Triumph Trophy, Norton Dominator, BSA Bantam and Velocette Venom. Riders come from as far as Torquay and Swindon to take part.

All proceeds go to Chard Carnival funds which are distributed to local
