FOUNDERS DAY, STAN­FORD HALL

The VMCC’S Founders Day re­mains a won­der­ful throw­back to a sim­pler age. It’s a day to ex­pe­ri­ence lovely old bikes be­ing pa­raded gen­tly round the grassy arena, or just bask­ing in the mid-sum­mer sun (hope­fully). It also has one of the best, most tightly fo­cused, au­to­jum­bles of the sum­mer. It’s a gen­teel event in the best pos­si­ble sense of the word. Or­gan­ised by the Tav­ern­ers Sec­tion of the club, it’s an event to savour with an ice cream or a cup of tea as you trawl the jum­ble stands. This year’s theme is Amer­i­can mo­tor­cy­cles, so ex­pect to see Har­leys, In­di­ans and maybe ex­am­ples of rarer mar­ques like Fly­ing Merkel and Hen­der­son. Camp­ing is avail­able on Satur­day night and there’s a beer tent and cater­ing fa­cil­i­ties too. Life in the slow lane – and all the bet­ter for it. thetav­ern­ers.com
