The Bill Lacey Run is a an annual pilgrimage for a great many bikers from a number of sections of the VMCC, one make clubs, and individuals alike, our run starts near Stretton-on-Dunsmore and travels down country lanes and through small villages in the counties of Warwickshire and Northamptonshire finishing at the village of Evenly where Bill Lacey lived and his daughter still does.Start

A wide range of bikes are parked all around the large village green in their hundreds and the local pub puts on a hog roast and a live band.Start

The run this year saw 23 bikes at the start including two vintage machines, Frank Parker on his 1929 P&M Panther and Harry Wiles on his 1929 Sunbeam up to early eighties machinery with two lady passenger. The run was just under 36 miles, travelling through Napton, Woodford Halse, Eydon, Greatworth and on to Evenly.Evenly



Following a few weeks of wall to wall sunshine the morning started overcast with a threat of heavy rain fortunately it stayed reasonably fine with just a few short showers. On arrival at the village members can spend as long, or as short a time there as they want just looking and chatting before making their own way home although a suggested route back to a central point is supplied.

Our thanks go to Harry and Fran Wiles for the route and Alan Bailey for the photos.
