SADDLE up for motorcycles of all shapes and sizes as the Cheltenham Festival of Bikes is held this weekend.
The Town Hall will be packed with a host of vehicles including modified classics, old school choppers and custom scooters.
A number of county-based bike builders will be taking part including the 2019 Young Custom Bike Builder of the Year, Cheltenham’s Louis Barnett.
He will be showing his modified Royal Enfield.

Money raised by the event goes towards Apperley Cricket Club and SARA.
