Trans - Pennine Run 2019

Harrogate Borough Council are hosting a huge Cycling event next September and intend to use the Stray for 9 days in total for this.

The stray has a clause that only allows a few days per year for events, our Trans - Pennine being one of those.

They have approached Central government to get this overturned for this year and if they refuse then it may well be at the expense of the Trans - Pennine on the Stray.

The Government have sent out a questionair asking for peoples views on this extension, we all should support this as that should secure our use of the Stray for the Trans - Pennine run


Please Follow this link and help to support our run.

What does the Society have to offer?

Probably the best known of our activities are the annual LONDON to BRIGHTON RUN held on the second Sunday in May, the TYNE-TEES RUN in early June and The TRANS PENNINE RUN from Manchester to Harrogate on the first Sunday in August, along with several other runs, also the 60th Anniversary Rally at Liphook in August. . All are open to buses and commercial vehicles over 20 years old’.

Regional Meetings

Monthly meetings are held in various regional centres where members are able to get to know each other and enjoy a wide variety of speakers, see film and dvd shows or take part in outdoor visits to places of historic transport interest’. You will be assured of a warm welcome at one of our Area Groups.


The society is a member of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHCV) and works closely with that organisation to keep abreast of any legislation from Britain or the EU which might affect our use of Historic Vehicles.
