Old school BMX bike fans gathered in Crewe on Saturday 15th October 2016 for a social ride through the town.
Around thirty people gathered at Crewe railway station in the morning for the 'Crewe Old School Ride' event organised by the ‘Crewe and Cheshire old school BMX’ group.
They rode to a selection of pubs in the town for light refreshments and lunch and their ride finished at The Shanaze Reade BMX track at Tipkinder Park in Crewe.
The event was open to all and bikers ranged in age from children to adults.
They rode racing and freestyle vintage BMX bikes from the 1980s as well as modern BMX bikes. BMX brands represented included Haro, Raleigh, GT, Mongoose and Skyway.
The event was organised by John Collins from Crewe, who rode his lovingly restored green and gold 'Collins Customs' bike. John said, “We had a great turnout at our 'Chesh-Air' event in June this year and another great turnout to this event. We are always looking for new members, so please get in touch and join us on our next ride."
