By David Gazet

Hundreds of motoring enthusiasts are descending on Aylesford to take part in one of the county's largest displays of classic bikes this weekend.

The four day International West Kent Run sees owners of vintage bikes wind their way through a 100 mile course from the village's 12th century priory through the countryside and back.

The event is organised by the west Kent section of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club and is now in its 33rd year, regularly attracting participants from across Europe.
