The Brass Monkey run is held
normally on Jan 1st. Bikers meet at Burton on Trent - Nottingham -
Leicester - Rugby - Derby - the West Midlands and beyond and leave around 12
noon to arrive at The Vic between 12.30 and 1pm,
At 1.30 pm a tour around The Charnwood Forest takes place and takes about 45 minutes to an hour to complete, on returning to The Vic, free hot soup and a roll is given to the normally shivering riders and passengers, a collection is made for the RAINBOWS Children's Hospice which normally raises a few hundred pounds, below is an accumulation of pictures taken over a few of the years by us, and the good ones by a good friend of The Vic, Ray Shepard who is a familiar face around the bike scene of The Midlands. Also Darren from CSC sent us these links from The Brassmonkey run
Thank you for the tea and coffee! Twas just what was needed!
