MOTORISTS face traffic disruption when a motorcycle rally travels across Weymouth.

The New Forest Branch of the Harley Owners’ Group will hold the event on Saturday.

Police are warning motorists of road closures ahead of the parade.

Inspector John Mallace, of the Dorset Police , said: “Dorset Police motorcyclists will escort this rally and we will aim to keep the convoy as compact as possible to minimise disruption to other road users.

“I would encourage members of the public to avoid the route where possible between 11.45am and 1pm on Saturday 29 September 2012.”

Up to 250 Harley Davidson motorcycles will start the ride at 11.45am from Littlemoor Road.

They will ride out along the A353 to Warmwell Cross, turning left along the A352 through to the Dorchester bypass.

It will then join the A35 heading west to the Monkeys Jump roundabout, taking the first exit onto the C53 Martinstown Road through to the B3159 before turning left.

The motorcyclists will then follow the B3159. It will end at Sea View Holiday Park at around 1pm.
