An excellent range of machines were present, including 5 vintage machines, David Payne’s 1915 Triumph Junior, Graham Hallard’s 1927 Neracar, Derek Morris’ 1928 Machless, Brenda Hallard’s 1929 AJS and Frank Parker’s 1929 Panther.

Bikes at the start

The run took us out through Snitterfield, Hampton Lucy, Walton, Pillerton Priors, Kineton, Gaydon, Bishops Itchington,  Harbury and Offchurch before winding our way through the leafy roads of north Leamington to the Reading’s house for afternoon tea.

Riders and passengers enjoying tea and cakes

What a scrumptious spread it was: cream teas and mountains of lovely homemade cakes, all served in a beautiful garden by the ladies, Dreeda Reading, Julie Wise and Joan Reeves.
