RALLY REPORT FOR TRIKEFEST 2018

Well we pulled another Trikefest out of the bag, this was one of our toughest yet with our venue finally finished with there major redevelopment works. This did not phase us as site was looking good ready for us to transform it into Trikefest.

We arrived on site on the thursday to get the site set up and ready for the gates opening on the Friday. The field got marked out with lanes to allow safe camping and the caterer turned up so he could get all his stuff set up too. Time for a drink or two before the gates open tomorrow.

 We started off with dedicated rally goers coming in Friday morning ready for a fun filled rally of music, beer silly games and of course more beer. Friday night kicked off with the disco by Scott seeing everybody rocking out ready for the band. As the hall started to fill up it was time for Let ther B/Dc to rock the stage with the classics from AC/DC. With the evening drawing to a close with people’s necks feeling a bit sore from head banging was time to retire back to their tents ready for a Saturdays antics.

 Saturday began with a touch of rain but that didn’t put off the punters as they kept rolling in a bit damp but spirits still high. As the sun came out Just in time for music by the talented Charlie Russell. With the silly games well under way with all the willing rally goers joining in and always up for a challenge with the likes of tug of war, dizzy sticks and Chopper bikes. It was then time for the backward trike which means only one thing, laughter, wrong turns and a high chance of embarrassment.

 With the silly games now over people retire to their tents for a chill out before Saturday night entertainment. Saturday night started off with disco before the band. Saturday nights band Mean and my Lady took to the stage with some great alternative music. Sunday was a chill out day for some and for others it was a tearful farewell as they packed up and set off for home. .

Monday and major monday morning blues (or hangovers) and the prospect of clearing everything back away and saying farewell to all of you who made it through the weekend. To all you who made it , thankyou, we put the rally on but its all of you who make it so great.

Trikes R Us would like to thank all of you that come to Trikefest it is you that make Trikefest the rally that it is. We would like to wish you all well for the rest of 2018 and hope to see some of you in a field somewhere. See you all next year for Trikefest 2019.

As the Chairman I would also like to thank all the Trikes R Us members for their support the past year and for all your hard work at the rally and well done.

Ged (chairman)
