MOTORBIKERS are gearing up for an annual charity show.

Aire Valley Classic Motorcycle Club, formerly Steeton-based Girder Fork, is once again staging its popular Big Bike Sunday.

A range of classic, vintage and modern machines will be on display at the event, at Skipton Auction Mart on June 30, from 11am to 3pm.

Last year's show was a huge success, raising £1,500 each for three causes – the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice Manorlands and amputee support group Airedale and Bradford Out on a Limb.

A club spokesperson says: "The event is a chance to come along and see machines of every age and description – including some original-patina examples and stunning motorcycles from across the years.

"And why not bring your own cherished machine and enter our Concours competition, with the opportunity to win a trophy? Categories include vintage, pre and post-1965 classics, modern, three-wheelers, custom and moped/scooter, as well as 'best in show'.

"Everyone is welcome.

"Last year's event was a roaring success – it was really busy, with loads of machines, stands, and sales of motorcycle gear and books etc."
