Hetchins Annual Weekend Event, 2019

The 30th annual Hetchins weekend event took place at Tibberton (Glos.) on the 5th, 6th, and 7th of July, 2019. This was the 20th, and last, time at this venue, hosted by Tony and Judy Falconer (with many helpers in the background who remain unnamed but not unappreciated). Approximately 50 participants took part, though not all rode. Not only Hetchins were ridden; other marques included Flying Gate, Raleigh, Hill Special, Claud Butler, Manxman, as well as a few modern, non-steel bikes. The event followed the customary program: Friday evening down to the pubs; Saturday longer ride through the countryside with coffee breaks and lunch; Saturday evening entertainment; Sunday morning ride.

Below are some photographic highlights from the weekend.
