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.

Holmeswood run 12th May   Sunday the12th of May and we’ve just finished the Holmeswood run and what a cracker it was.

We had a diverse selection of bikes ,each a delight to see . Girder forked machines,…
