Drive It Day Run
Sunday 22nd April 2018

Although early morning was bright and sunny, as the 30 cars and handful of motorcycles left Coulby Manor black clouds were threatening. Some were fortunate and made it to the 1/2 way at the Gliding Centre at Sutton Bank before the heavy showers (Click on photograph of cars at 1/2 way for link to short video by Owen Frankland)













The second half took the crews through the lanes past Rievaulx over Snilesworth to Osmotherley, Swainby and Hutton Rudby back to the Club for a BBQ - in the sunshine.

Put Them To Bed Run
Sunday 29th October 2017

Heavy rain on Sunday morning didn't seem to deter participants on this run. All except organiser Ernie Graves who, with a bit of persuasion from Ted Hardwick, left his bike at home and did the run in his van. A little fortuitous, as it happened. One entrant, Tony Cowen's son, had come off his Enfield coming to the start venue. He still set off with the other 36 participants even though it was thought that he had broken a finger. A steady run took them to Westerdale, then along the Esk Valley through Castleton, Danby, Lealholme. However at Limber Hill he couldn't manage to change gear so Ernie loaded the bike into the van and proceeded to the half way at Whitby. As the run returned along the coast through Sandsend, and Ugthorpe, to Boulby the later runners were caught in more heavy showers. Owen and Pam Frankland's MGB stopped in Hinderwell. Although one or two stopped to assist the car refused to start and their journey home was on the back of a recovery truck. All other entrants made it back to Coulby Manor safely however, and a well deserved BBQ meal.

Thank you very much for staging this excellent event. I really enjoyed it and was most impressed with the venue and the friendliness of the organisers.

"The Nineteen Bridges Run"
Monday 29th May 2017

In contrast to the 2016 event, this year entrants started in heavy rain. This did stop to the relief of the sole motorcycling entrant, James Stedman, on his CG125. Many others had left their classic in the garage and come in moderns. No less enjoyment though and after a rather wet and muddy 45 mile first half in the lanes adjacent to the A19, we had a welcome break at the excellent Birds of Prey centre at Sion Hall north of Thirsk. The second half took in many new roads through Maunby, Scruton and Kirny Fleetham, before heading back to the Club via Streetlam and Danby Wiske for our BBQ. Thanks to all those who braved the inclement weather to join us, including several new faces. Hope to see you all again.
