Whether it was due to the location, the time of year or hardwork of the organisers, the second Stone Circle Classic and Custom Ride-in Bike Show was a roaring success.
Hosted by the Wiltshire branch of the BSA owners’ club at Avebury, visitors arrived in large numbers from early on despite a chilly start.
It soon became apparent to the organisers that word had spread of last year’s event and they estimated a higher attendance than the previous year’s 700 or so. The main classic and custom bike park had to be closed at about 12.30pm as it was full, and the exhibits took over chunks of the neighbouring cricket field. The NSA once again put on an interesting display of their varied sprint bikes, and the Butchered Classics Facebook group attended with strong numbers, while Allen Millyard brought along his newly completed Velocette V-twin and a selection of his spectacular multi-cylindered Kawasaki two-strokes. Money raised at the show is to go to the Wiltshire Air Ambulance and another local good cause.
