The Moon Rally 1979

23 mins United Kingdom

At the Moon Rally, organised by Stalybridge Motorcycle Club, 900 bikers meet up at the Rising Moon pub in Hyde, Greater Manchester, for a weekend of riding and talking bikes, rock music and drinking. And, of course, the sport of piston-flinging, the joys of the muddy campsite, the flimsy canvas portaloos, and a hearty fried breakfast to ease the hangover, which all make for a memorable weekend.

Set up in 1977, the North West Film Archive preserves moving images made in or about Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire, Merseyside and Cumbria and offers a variety of access services to users in the public, academic and commercial sectors.
