Oldest Bike Day

14 March, 2010

It was Picnic Time at Point England beside the Tamaki River - and time to bring out your oldest bike.

This meant that you could have brought a bike with you that you had bought only the day before.

But several members brought along machines a bit older than that.




Here's Bill unloading his, under the watchful eyes of Pelham and Ray H.

Bill's is an Empire dating from around 1952.
Keith has a Holdsworth from about the same era.
Annette's bike Mary, named after her mother, is a Phillips dating back to the early 1940s.
Ray's is his wife's Triumph from 1957.
And Pelham has a Raleigh from about 1970.
