Despite the chilly and typical April weather, the ScooterNova riders had a smashing time riding to North Wales for the third Lambretta Club of Great Britain scooter rally.
Numbers were a little low on the campsite but there was nothing low about the standard of scooters. The pubs were busy with a jovial atmosphere as we supped the pints we’d earned. We even nipped out on the Saturday ‘rideout’, being lured by the Horseshoe Pass which was only slightly marred by the hailstorms! Our Lambrettas were trouble free for the trip back to the sunny South. Well done, once again, to LCGB for a fun weekend.
