Vintage motorcycles parade in north-east
Aden Country Park at Mintlaw plays host to the plus one rally event
DOZENS of vintage motorcycles roared into the grounds of a north-east park yesterday.
About 45 machines, owned by members of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club (VMCC), were paraded at Aden Country Park as part of a fledgling rally event.
The Plus One, which is now in its second year, saw riders set up base at the Mintlaw tourist attraction after touring Aberdeenshire earlier in the day.
Bill Falconer, chairman of the north-east Scotland branch of the VMCC, said the event had grown since its debut outing last year. He said: “Last weekend we had the Strathendrick and Trossachs Rally and this weekend it’s the National Rally at Blairgowrie so this gives the members something to do in between.
“We had about 30 bikes involved last year and 45 here this time so it’s certainly growing and we hope things continue to improve.”
The group left Aden Country Park about 10am yesterday and travelled south towards Collieston then across to Inverurie, before returning to the park at around 4pm.
