Bath Classic Motorcycle Club meets on a regular basis at a variety of hostelries around the Bath area for a sociable chat, a glass of Vimto and a sandwich, while comparing the amount of dirt or not playing 'spot the incorrect washer' on our classic steeds.

Please do not ride on any part of the drive leading to the landowners house before the start. Parking is in the field at the top of the drive, the fence has been removed for access.

Keep to the tracks between sections, the venue is an old quarry with some deep holes and very boggy areas can catch you out.

The caterer will be there from before the start with drinks and hot food, this will be available throughout the trial and afterwards. 

We look forward to seeing you all at this event, anyone willing to observe will be very welcome!

Although the weather has conspired against us this week, with strong winds and rain, Satuday should be better with a mix sunshine and showers.

There is a footpath crossing the land which we will notify the public of the event being run, but please be respecfull to dog walkers and ramblers.

Due to restricted access (ropes, stakes and marshal points) on the Scramble track we have laid 8 sections out, so the trial will be over 4 observed laps. 'A' Expert (Red/Blue) and 'B' Clubmen (white) routes, along with the 'Gentlemans' route (ride in and out of the entry/exit gates).

Look forward to seeing you there!

Essentially, a gentle run on B roads and small lanes. £5.00 donation is asked for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance. This run has been enjoyed (endured) for many years raising thousands for the WAA. We sometimes encounter grass, gravel and grit, ponds, puddles, a ford and even a 100 yard lake on one lane some years ago.
