WELLS Classic Motorcycle Cub won the sought-after “best club stand” award at a major classic motorcycle event, held over the last weekend of February.

Club members displayed fifteen classic motorcycles ranging from the year 1929 through to the early 2000s.

Amongst the members’ display of bikes, there was the club’s ‘lamppost lady’ complete with hanging baskets and a ‘rattle bucket’ collecting donations for the Air Ambulance in exchange for a hot drink and a piece of cake in the café. This was complemented by Town Crier. complete with traditional clothing and a bell. Between them, they raised a whopping £1,647 for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

The club also organises the very popular Tortoise and Hare Motorcycle event based in Wells and rides through the Mendip Hills and beyond at which much-needed funds are also raised to support the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and EVS Freewheelers (Blood Bikes).

This year’s event which attracts entrants from far and wide is to be held over the weekend of July 19-21.

New members are always very welcome at the club.
