IT was all downhill for the March Veteran and Vintage Cycle club at the weekend when they held their annual New Year’s ride.
The club’s chairman Colin Bedford said the day was great fun and even a puncture and a broken chain failed to spoil the fun.
The cyclists covered around seven miles including free-wheeling down the Norwood Road railway bridge.
A special dinner was enjoyed by everyone at the Plate and Porter and this was followed by the annual presentation for the best cycles in the event.
The Ladies Trophy went to Maureen Goodge for her 1909 Ladies Rover and the men’s winner was Alan Kempton for his 1910 Royal Enfield.
Colin said this year’s event included a large number of tandems and one family had a bicycle made for four thanks to two trailers joined together on their tandem tricycle.
“Everyone enjoyed themselves, we did have one puncture and one chain broke, but we managed to tow them back to the Plate and Porter for repairs,” said Colin.
