More than 200 classic scooter enthusiasts revved their way to be part of a huge gathering in a Lincolnshire market town.
The rally organised by the Sleaford All-Knighters Scooter Club saw hundreds of people flock to the Jolly Scotchman pub in Holdingham to view the classic machines up close.
There was also a procession through Sleaford town centre and a ride out to honour Sleaford All-Knighters member, Nicky Reeves, 55.
Nicky, who has a mobility scooter which was customised by other club members with a Vespa scooter body, led the processions from the start. .
Rob Castle, who runs the Sleaford All-Knighters Scooter Club and organised the event, said: “Nicky loves scooters, we got an electric mobility scooter and put a Vespa front on it and we put a plea out to local clubs to donate things like wing mirrors. Last year we decided to celebrate this with a ride out and this year is the second anniversary of that.”
Last year, the rally raised money for the Glass House Project. Scooter clubs from across the country travelled to be part of the event.
The weekend also saw a fun day at the pub where trophies were up for grabs for best turned out and custom scooters, furthest travelled and best turned out for the club.
There was also music from Dave Morris on the Saturday night playing northern soul and ska music at the Jolly Scotchman.
