Mayor sets off annual Coast to Coast Run

The Mayor of Lyme Regis, Councillor Michaela Ellis, sets off the annual Coast to Coast motorcycle run

ABOUT 150 classic motorcycles lined Lyme Regis seafront on Sunday morning for the annual Coast to Coast Run.

Crowds gathered to get a close look at the vintage motorcycles, lined along the Cart Road in scorching sunshine.

The Mayor of Lyme Regis, Councillor Michaela Elllis, accompanied by husband Alan and town crier Alan Vian, wished the bikers and safe journey and officially started the run by waving a Union flag.

Organised by the Westland Classic Motorcycle Club, those taking part headed off on the 40-mile journey to to Burnham-on-Sea, making several stops along the way.

The charity run was held in aid of Headway Somerset, which works to improve the lives of those who have suffered a brain injury.
