The event, which is in its 66th year, will run over two days, with the Vintage Training Day taking place on Saturday June 7 offering ‘Vintage virgins’ the chance to ride the motorcycles in a safe “off road” environment. The main Banbury Run, which will take place on Sunday June 8, is the largest gathering of pre-1931 motorcycles & three-wheelers in the World.

The Banbury Run is aimed at those who enjoy riding with other Vintage, Veteran & Pioneer bikes. The exact route is kept top secret until the day, although this year it will venture through the villages of Whatcote and Great Bourton. In addition to the Run, there will also be club and trade stands, over 100 autojumble pitches and special interest displays.

Tom Caren, Show Manager for the Heritage Motor Centre stated: “The Banbury Run is a fantastic day out for both those participating in the Run and those coming along to watch the bikes in all their glory as they set off for their annual ride around the nearby countryside. Watching the vintage motorcycles ride together is a real spectacle to see!”

The Museum will be open from 9am – 5pm with the Banbury Run beginning at 10am.

Tickets for the Run cost £6 in advance or £8 on the day for adults, children and concessions and £25 for a family on the day.
