2016 St Georges Day Tour

Blackburn Northern Sports hosts the 2016 event

This years St Georges Day Tour start from Blackburn Northern Sports where some 140 entrants in 70 cars enjoyed a bacon butty before setting out on their travels. The Lancashire Automobile Club took the opportunity to invite the Blood Bikers along to present a cheque for monies raised at the raffle at the Barry 'Whizzo' Williams Sportsmans lunch held late last year.
The route was quickly into open country travelling to Gt Harwood and on to Pendle Hill and Sabden before turning north towards Barrowford and on to Skipton.
Then it was north again towards Kettlewell before turning west to pass Malham Tarn via some interesting ascents taking in some great views. A brief stop at the Helwith Bridge Inn where the entrants were welcomed with a roaring fire and a cake stall raising money fro the local school. Then the route descended via Waddinton and Stoneyhurst College to cross the River Ribble at Ribchester before returning to Blackburn Northern Sports for light refreshments.
The route totalled some 90miles with the first entrants returning about 2.30pm. A really good event with some fabulous cars.
