The National Association of Veteran Cycle Club is to hold its 59th annual cycle rally next weekend.
The rally, which has been organised in collaboration with the Retro Cycle Club and Ramsey Rural Museum, is the world’s oldest veteran cycle rally and attracts over 100 veteran cyclists from around Europe.
Stuart Warburton, rally organiser, said: “The event brings out the country’s rarest and exotic veteran and vintage cycles dating from the 1860s to the 1930s.
“At this year’s event there will be boneshakers, penny farthings, early safety bicycles, tricycles and the nostalgic cycles of the 1920/30s.”
Jean Pegg, lead volunteer at Ramsey Rural Museum, said: “The museum is proud to be involved in this event and seeing all those rare and exotic cycles from the 19th and 20th centuries.

“We hope that people will come to the museum to see the cycles and riders, as cycling has been a very important activity for Fenland people since the beginnings of cycling.”
The rally takes place on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 September at the Ramsey Rural Museum.
