The 2014 annual show of the Royston and District Motor Cycle Club (RDMCC) recently brought together over 2,500 bikers in Royston, Hertfordshire. The 29th annual event was held on 18 June, the Royston Crow reported.
Visitors were able to see a wide range of both modern and classic bikes on display at Meldreth Manor School, where the show was staged.
The day and the evening were great for motorcyclists, with the car and bike parks filled almost to capacity, event organiser Mark Coningsby commented. However, everything went without a hitch: the experienced RDMCC members managed to handle the situation in the motorcycle parks, while the Bassingbourn Air Cadets did their job admirably in the car park, Coningsby added.
The event was organised to support three charities – the East Anglian Air Ambulance, Friends of Meldreth Manor and SERV blood runners. The bikers managed to raise around £12,000 in total.
The RDMCC was set up back in 1985 to offer bikers the opportunity to meet like-minded enthusiasts and to promote motorcycling. Its annual show has become one of the most popular biking-related events of the year. It is also a prominent exhibition destination for the world’s top motorcycle brands, among them Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki and Royal Enfield. The 2014 event was sponsored by BMW Rider Training and Open Road Rentals.
The grounds team at Meldreth Manor spared no efforts in preparing the site, Coningsby said, adding that the date for next year’s show has already been selected. The 30th anniversary of the RDMCC show will be celebrated on 17 June at Meldreth Manor.
