Red Marley Classic Hill Climb - Easter Monday

Post  Radar on Fri Apr 29 2011, 22:01

I rode to Red Marley this year with a couple of mates and meet up with a couple of others once in the track.

The event pits pre 1970 classic dirt bikes against a monster hill in the wilds of Worcestershire. Always a popoular event locally and this year the very resonable £7 gate entry went at least in part to Help for Hereos

The bikes race in a variety of catorgories and engine sizes in groups of four with the fastest two making it through to the next round. Riders from 16 to 75(!) take place and the roar of brit bikes on open pipes and the crackling of Chezch two-strokes surrounds you. All this as the sweet smell of Castrol hangs in the air...brilliant.

The official website will give the details...

A few pics from another grand day out:


My Thundercat parked up with my mates Fireblade and Tiger


The event is set in stunning Worcestershire and was blessed with bright sunshine this year

The bike park threw up some nice bikes too:


A proper off-road bikes, before BMW spoilt everything with huge bikes saddled down with more kit than an average army


Rare Laverda twin, pretty bike...


Ice cool


Traditional trike shot


Mint GT750


A sublime way to get to physio...


Loving the wicker top box...more British than a huge wedding costing millions!

We also had a wonder around the trade stands and pits


Inventive use of an old beer barrel!


This electric off road bike was also on show and four of them atacked the hill with some gusto. However the run was performed in silence...this electric power is all very clever, but is dubious environmentally and lacks any kind of drama in competetion


This Enfield Fury really caught my eye, but £6000 is proper money

But this what the day was about...


The mighty hill itself...


Waiting for their turn for a crack at the hill...


State of the art riding gear was not exactly the order of the day!


Out of the gate!


You have got to keep it wound on


Not everybody makes it!


Recovery can be tricky


This the view from the top


The races came thick and fast all afternoon


No day out is complete without a 'light salad'!

Cracking day out!
