Vintage Spring ride report

What amazes me at the Vintage Rides is the diversity of the bikes there and the innovative and skilful restorations of old bikes. As well as the old bikes that are simply given a new set of tyres and ridden as rusty, much loved and practical means of transport or as showcases for other art works. Today’s ride was certainly an event which showcased all of these.
