The BSA Motorcycles Owners association operates the All British Motorcycle Rally each year and as part of the rally rides from Newstead to Maldon for the day.
This year over 1000 people attended and a sea of British motorcycles, mostly historical and vintage, filled Main Street at Maldon.
Today people stopped to view the massive display of bikes. Riders stopped in at local cafes and the bakery for lunch. Visitors not expecting the rally looked bemused or amazed at how many motorcycles filled the street.
