A relation of a fanatical Keighley district motorcycling family will embark on a three-day off-road challenge in June.

Graham Lampkin, 62, will travel to the Shetland Classic Vehicle Show in Lerwick on his 1959 Royal Enfield motorcycle. But the twist is he will attempt the journey riding via legal ‘green roads’ and tracks, wherever possible, to reach the ferry at Aberdeen. Graham lives in Colne, and is related to the Lampkins of Silsden, who have notched up many world titles, British titles and other motocross and trials victories over the years.

Graham said: “The legendary Arthur Lampkin, hero of TV scrambles in the 60s, has endorsed the trip with his blessing. “It’s for Cancer Research UK, and I’m hoping for donations from the public and sponsorship from local business.” Visit lampygoestolerwick.co.uk for further information.
