This year’s Boxing Day dawned bright and sunny; just as well as the weather took a turn for the worse during the afternoon. The bright and sunny start brought a good turnout of visitors and machines, both VMCC and BMRCO to the fore. We were even honoured (if that’s the right word) by a visiting gang of Harley Davidson riders. This event, originally run in the city centre by the local VMCC, moved to the Red Lion some years ago, is now as firmly established in our calendar as it is in theirs and shows every sign of continuing.
Special thanks to our landlady Jan for providing hot drinks and bacon rolls.

Boxing Day Meet 26th December 2017, Red Lion Cassington
For many years the local VMCC met in the Centre of Oxford prior to their ride out. However Oxford Council decided to no longer make space available for them in the city. The event was in danger of folding, but BMRCO came to the rescue and the meet transferred to the Red Lion in Cassington. Over the intervening years this has become as much our event as theirs, with many club members turning out in support. This year the meet is to be held as before, so come along, bring your bike or just yourself, get some fresh air and blow away the Christmas hangover.
All welcome, Gathering starts around 10 O’clock until mid day, hot and cold drinks available at the bar.
