DocBike Charity Run

Once again we were invited to put on a display of bikes at the end of the DocBike Charity Run that raises funds for the DocBike and Air Ambulance. The finish was at held at Henstridge Airfield which is the home of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. There were two runs this year riding in from Bridport and Alderholt with over 360 bikes entering. We had a good selection of bikes at the finish which was greatly appreciated by the organisers.

Berwick St John Country Fayre

The Berwick St John Country Fayre returned after a long break to raise funds for the Stars Appeal at Salisbury Hospital. A nice sunny weekend in the lovely South Wiltshire countryside although a little fresh with the northerly wind coming up the valley. An enjoyable was had by all who attended.

Summer Run & BBQ

We were blessed with sunshine for our Summer Run & BBQ but luckily it wasn’t too hot compared with previous weekends. Unfortunately a lot of our members were on the Island to see the Manx GP which returned after a 3 year break due to Covid. We had a nice ride out to the Fox and Hounds at East Knowle. After which we returned for the BBQ with the usual eating, drinking and lots of laughter!

         

True Lovers Knot Mini Fest

We supported our home venue the True Lover Knot for their Mini Fest raising funds for Ataxia the charity they are supporting this year. As well as our display of bikes, there was bands playing all day, Cider tasting and a display of birds of prey which were flown around the beer garden. We were lucky to be able to hold some of the birds.

V-Dub at the Pub

Once again we were invited to put on a display at this show to help raise funds for Parkinson’s UK the charity we support. We had an excellent display of 21 bikes. Plus members of the Club made cakes which were sold in aid of the charity raising even more funds.

British Superbikes Thruxton

We had the honour of being invited to join a few our Clubs in putting on a display of motorcycles at the Thruxton round of the British Superbike championship. Seeing and hearing the bikes in the flesh is amazing as you don’t realise the speed they riding around at on the TV. Thruxton is the fastest circuit on the BSB calendar.

MG Club

The local MG Owners Club had their annual gathering at the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum. We were invited to put on a display of motorcycles as it was being held there. Unfortunately due to other commitments we were only able to display a few bikes.

CRMC Donington Park

The Annual August CRMC meeting at Donington Park where the NOC present the Peter Williams Trophy in his memory. The NOC had a display of race bikes in the Melbourne loop. Peter’s wife Pam and his son Jack attended the meeting and presented the trophy on the podium which we were privileged to go up and join them.

Festival of 1000 Bikes

The VMCC Festival of 1000 Bikes return to the Mallory Park circuit in a blaze of glory with temperatures in the low 30’s and continuous sunshine. It was the usual format for us with one group of our members run the display in the Avenue of Clubs and another group with the display of race bike in the paddock. A great time was had by all especially on Sunday when a few of us were out on the track.

VMCC Banbury Run

The VMCC Banbury Run returned to the British Motor Museum at Gaydon after a 3 year break due to covid. It was great to see, hear and smell all the pre 1931 motorcycles again! The Norton Owners Club had their usual display of bikes just past the start line which ideal to see all the bike start and leave.
