THIS Thursday hundreds of bikers will line the city centre to mark the start of a weekly bike meet.

Southampton Bike Night is due to return on Thursday, April 4, at 6pm at the Bargate.

The event started in 2015 and has seen a successful past three years.

The event will make the beginning of a new year for Southampton Bike Night, that will run until autumn.

The event is open to bikers of all ages and welcomes vehicles from 50cc learners to custom-built bikes.

Previous events have attracted more than 300 motorcyclists and organisers are expecting similar numbers this year.
