Banbury Re-Run 30th June 2019.

On a perfect day - fortunately cooler than the previous day - ten riders and
one pillion signed on at the entrance to the British Motor Museum at Gaydon.
A very wide range of bikes took part, the oldest being Derek Morris'  1928
Matchless and newest Alan Bailey's 1992 Suzuki GN250. Smallest was Ted
Robinson's 1980 Honda Benly, the largest M Lepkowski's 1984 Norton Rotary. 

The route used was the B Route, going out through Lighthorne, Kineton,
Pillerton Priors, Whatcote, Oxhill, then up Sunrising, into Horton, then
skirting Wroxton and Shutford, through North Newington and into Banbury. Out
along the Warwick Road, now heading north, through Hanwell, Great Bourton
and into Cropredy where we saw many people dressed (and armed!) as Civil War
soldiers, gathered for the 375th Anniversary of the Battle of Cropredy
Bridge. Then on through Claydon, Farnborough, Fenny Compton and back to
Gaydon along the quaintly named Pimple Lane. Then straight past the Museun
entrance down into the Antelope at Lighthorne where  we took some very
welcome refreshment.

Our thanks go to Alan Bailey for organising the event. 
Finally, our thanks to Harry for an excellent scenic route.
