Description of run
Get your waxed cotton underpinnings aired and best trials universals sharpened. The Colonial Run 2017 is coming! This ever popular autumnal jaunt over the highways and byways of Northumberland is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. And maybe some mud in your eye. The main route is suited to riders and machines with a modicum of off road ability, although a more road orientated route will be available around the worst of the muddy bits. Pictures of last years event show that this ability may be desirable but not necessarily displayed! All machines must be road legal, comply with the VMCC 25 year rule and no knobbly/motocross style tyres please. Trials universal type at most. A lunch stop of beguiling comfort and relaxation will be found in the wilds of Northumberland, along with adventure, stunning scenery and good companionship. The weather in 2016 was very kind, however who knows what 2017 has in store! Please contact the organiser to signify your attendance. Entries are accepted on the day with the proviso that Andreas has prior warning that you are coming. Hope to see you there for a great day out along Northumberland's green and pleasant BOATs! P.S. The 2016 event was won by Peter Bates - our Cultural Attaché from the Industrial Heartlands. Come along and try to do better than him this year!
