Prescott Bike Festival 2014

Stand display

Stand display

This is the third year that Gloucester Branch have attended this event which is held to raise funds for the Blood Riders so that they can continue to operate the important service that they provide.The weather was mainly dry but a bit dull this year so not the best light conditions for taking photographs, neverthe less our branch secretary Chris S did an amazing job for us on the day.

Ably supported by 14 branch members plus two visitors (Barry & Geoff)  Chris S had organised a very varied display of machines ranging from the 1920’s to the 1970’s, however the allocated site for the club stands this year was on a slight slope which meant that some bikes had to be literally anchored in position!

We had only one member having a tilt at the Hill itself and Chris N made it look relatively easy with his very smooth riding style
