Burnham-On-Sea stop on the Motorcycle Club 3 Day Trial

Burnham-On-Sea stop on the Motorcycle Club 3 Day Trial

The Motorcycling Club will be stopping over in Burnham-on-Sea on Saturday 25th June during the club’s 120th  Anniversary Dick Peachey Three Day Trial.

The trials take place on 24th to 26th June this year and the vehicles will be available to view in Burnham-on-Sea  Pier Street car park from 11:30am until 2:30pm.

This is a ‘Classic Trial’, where competitors attempt to climb some of the steepest unsurfaced tracks around without stopping, while completing a 530 mile tour of the South West. Visitors are invited to talk to the competitors about their machines and the crazy events they take part in (usually through the night going all the way to Land’s End or Edinburgh). There will be everything from pre-war bikes and cars through to modern day, homemade specials, kit cars and all manner of vehicles that take part in the events. So, please put it in the diary to come down and have a look.

There are around 120 entrants signed up arriving at one minute intervals, which means the event will run from 11:30am to around 2:30pm until the last competitor gets back on the road to continue the trial.
