Motorcycle madness in Crow Country
THOUSANDS of bikers braved the weather last Wednesday to kick start the summer motorcycling season.
The Royston and District Motorcycle Show at Meldreth Manor School hosted trade stands showcasing the latest models that enthusiasts could splash out on.
Steve Coningsby, show co-ordinator, said: “The show was fantastic, the threat of a bit of rain kept the numbers down, but I couldn’t move in the traders’ paddock for all the bikers.
“Seeing all these bikes is great, but it’s even better for the charities we support.
“The kids from the school love coming down in the evening, and we are told they talk about it for months before and after.”

Now in its 26th year, the exhibition started from humble beginnings at the Red Lion pub, in Kneesworth, where the RDMCC would come together each year to show off members’ bikes.
