Junction Bike Show 12th January 2020

  Sunday12th January what a start for 2020 it was the first event of the year for the N/W VMCC. It was a wet cold morning but it didn’t keep the crowds away. We had a full Venue aided along by our Friends and colleagues from the surrounding Sections. I’ve been out of action for a couple of months with a health problem but I wasn’t too concerned because we have a great team of doers at the N/W and Jeff and his guys from Blackpool had made an early…

Boxing day 2019 meet at Farmer’s Arms, Parbold

  There was a good turn out of about 80 odd bikes for the Boxing Day meeting at the Farmer’s Arms pub in Parbold again this year despite the cold & rain. Everyone seemed to go in to the pub for a bacon roll and a cup of tea or coffee, so the landlord must have been happy with the business he got. I’m sure all those who attended meet up with like minded friends to discuss their Christmas activities or their next bike project.  PS Don’t forget to go…

The Junction Pub 3rd Bike Show & Thundersqueak 2019

The 3rd Junction Classic bike show went ahead despite the poor weather we had a reasonable turn out, although there were quite a number who left their bikes at home and came in their cars. However, I’m sure they all enjoyed the show for a cup of tea, bacon butty and a chat with like mined people. Others came on their bikes getting quite wet (including me), but at least I had a nice dry ride home, which I thoroughly enjoyed. If I’m not mistaken there were a couple of…

Junction bike show 16th June 2019 & autojumble

We would like to thank Paul Draper landlord of the Junction Pub in Rainford for once again allowing us to have a bike show in his very large marquee.  The event was well attended but not quite as many as in January, this was probably due to it being father’s day and the unpredictable weather. However, the weather wasn’t too bad and we had riders in and out all day. There was a great variety of bikes on display and our thanks go to all those who attended, as without…
