IMQ29435wWade House Community Centre, Shelf, Bradford
Dateline: 17-April-2011

Derek Browne organised this annual event featuring a collection of lightweight and historic cycles - many from the era of the BLRC (1942-1959) - plus cycling memorabilia. With an auction in support of the Dave Rayner Fund and a ride on period bikes around the former Beacon Grand Prix circuit it was a chance for many to renew old friendships. Below are a few photos taken during my brief visit today.
