Hundreds of bikers have been descending on Weston’s Beach Lawns this summer to show off their wheels and raise money for charity.
The bike nights are held every Thursday from 6pm, when motorcyclists from across the South West head for the town.
Each biker pays a £1 to take part and all the proceeds go to the Royal British Legion.
Up to 700 bikers attend - with some even travelling from abroad.
Weston Bike Night has been running since 2008 and has raised more than £120,000 for the cause so far.
