ONE FOR THE DIARY
How many bikes? 13-14 July VMCC Festival of 1000 Bikes
Loads of bikes (one thousand, so they say), a race circuit and probable good weather. It’s the kind of event that doesn’t need much thought, and there are usually plenty of exhibitions, star guests and other sideshows to keep your entertainment content high: the Spondon Owners Club usually gather en masse in tribute to the master of the welded tube, ‘Sweary’ Bob Stevenson, for example. Their swearing competition is very often the highlight of the day, although not suitable for minors.
