THE BEAMISH TROPHY TRIAL, which covers 120 miles of northern dales in Cumbria, Durham and Northumberland, attracted 128 riders on classic off-roaders in September.
The event, run by South Durham Vintage Motorcycle Club, saw a wide range of steeds from Scotts to Suzukis tackle the route which includes some of the finest motorcycling roads in the country and some challenging off-road sections.
It was run originally for 27 years by The Friends of Beamish, then by Durham Classic Motorcycle Club from 1998 until the task was handed over to South Durham VMCC in 2008.
Starting and finishing at The New Board Inn, Hill Top, Esh, Co. Durham riders enjoyed warm sunshine and endured torrential downpours over the trial.
