After two weeks holiday in Beautiful Dorset the weather on this years Coventry Parade did come as a bit of a wake up call. Standing in my Garage for 30 minutes all dressed up in my finest wet weather gear looking at the rain get steadily heavier, I thought to myself ' maybe the rain will slow down soon' Pah! By the time I arrived at Coombe Abbey Country Park I and many other brave riders were very very wet. However after splashing around the country lanes for a while most people decided on an early lunch stop, and partake of some of the delicious hot and drink food on offer.
However although the weather was very challenging this didn't stop people turning up on some very nice and interesting machines. These images I managed to take between showers while keeping my Camera under my jacket to prevent water logging. Latter on the Sun did come out and the roads started to steam as we rode our machines back to Coombe Abbey. Latter Many people could be seen hanging onto the Gazebo during prize giving as strong winds tried to make it air born. All in all a great day ( slightly damp ) was had by all who attended. Many thanks to the organising team.
