But we are we are best known for running our very successful "Founders day" vintage bike show and autojumble at Stanford hall every year. We have over 300 pitches for our autojumble and it is well known as being a "proper" jumble full of stalls selling old bike stuff.
There is also our annual Taverners Road Trial. This is a popluar event with varied routes for all classes of bike, including a green lane route. This event will celebrate its 61st year this year.
Here is a youthful Ivan Rhodes competing in our Road trial many many years ago.
We also support a different charity every year by holding an charity auction.This year our chosen charity is rainbows.
Rainbows is a local hospice for children and young people Click the logo below to head to their site
Last year we raised nearly £800 for NABD . Partly due to the kind auto jumble folks at Founders day who donated money or goods for our charity auction. Our committee raised this amount to £1000 and then we raised another £200 by filling in the gift form. So all in all we raised £1200.
