I left too early to see the maximum number of parked bikes but they number many thousands of cycles and the weather was nice enough for a good turnout. There was a quality sound system with a good selction of songs that could be heard all over the grounds.

This was the 26th year for this event which was held on Sunday June 6 from 10am to 3pm. The British bikes were parked in the center of the field arranged by make for judging and awards. Vendors set up around the perimeter. The weather was threatening and cool but it did not rain.

This is a fun British bike event with a broad selection of bikes to see along with the British only flea market. Anyone who likes vintage bikes would have a great time seeing these bikes and talking with their owners.

Bikers from all over the country converge on the area for a week of fun and festivities much like Daytona Bike Week only the hills and curves of central New Hampshire are much more fun to ride on than the flat straight Florida highways.

Weirs Beach is a little tourist town on huge Lake Winnipesaukee. It is on Route 3 at the bottom of a hill when heading south where a bridge crosses the inlet to Paugus Bay which stretches many miles towards Laconia. There is a drive-in theater right there that is taken over as a huge vendor area.

And the main street along the lake called Lakeside Avenue has a boardwalk and piers along it. This is where bikers like to cruise up and down and park their bikes much like Main Street Daytona. During certain periods all car traffic is kept off that stretch of Route 3 and Lakeside Avenue and bike riders rule.

The weather was nice but cool on both days. There were planned rides on Friday and a gathering at the Baseball Tavern Thursday evening.

Saturday had a Sunday had a final barbeque at the home base Howard Johnsons motel. We attended the Saturday bagel breakfast and saw more scooters in one place than we had ever seen before. I would estimate that between 30 and 40 scooters pulled in. Unlike many motorcycle events where seldom used bikes are brought and displayed most of these scooters were daily riders with enough miles on their odometers to make many motorcyclist envious.

There was a broad range of scooters from the s up to the present and a significant number of lady riders. As one would expect Vespas were in the majority. The weather was hazy but comfortably warm. When most of the group headed out on the Larz Anderson ride they were an unusual and impressive sight.

The groups size and loud roar caused cars to make way as they made their way through traffic. The view of the city from the Larz Anderson parking lot lookout was well worth the effort to get there. Air Heads refers to those traditional opposed twin air cooled BMWs and the Aerdrome of old airplanes is nearby in Rhinebeck NY and there is a ride there on Saturday to watch the air show.

We visited on Saturday afternoon June The park is located on route near the Taconic Parkway. This is a very scenic area for motorcycle riding. The park itself is huge with lots of space and privacy for the Airheads.

There was a good cross section of BMWs from all years and models plus some Guzzis and other makes. Most who attended rode in by cycle packing their camping gear with them. This year is was on Sunday June Vendors are allowed in at 7am and the public at 10am.

This is a Harley oriented event but there are other makes around.


There was a live band and a motorcycle judging. The weather was clear and sunny. I don't think we will ever know that for sure. But you can get a little taste of what it would be like for a vintage motorcycle enthusiast if you make the effort to attend this event. Although most of the people do not look like you remember from the s, most of the motorcycles do and the overwhelming number of them and the friendly atmosphere puts you in a state of mind where you feel you are some place back in time.

It is near the center of the state as the name implies.

The track is located in a semi-rural area so there is no city traffic to deal with. The grounds cover many acres but walking to all areas is easy even if it may take a little time.

Many people have little cycles to get around. You can get in on Thursday afternoon.

This is a great event on many levels. Great for anyone wanting to see lots of running vintage cycles, great for watching vintage races, and of course great for buying vintage cycles whether perfect or a basket case or any sort of cycle part either NOS or used.

You can camp at your vendor site. None of the sites have electricity and access to prepared food is limited. There are plenty of portable toilets all over the grounds and there is a permanent shower and restroom building but it gets rather crowded. There is also a portable shower unit in the campground.

Taking a shower takes a bit of effort. We arrived on Thursday afternoon, July 15, and set up our vendor site. Even then there were lots of vendors already set up. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday had huge crowds and the weather was great.

Even with 3 days you still could not see everything. Around Sunday at noon things start clearing out and by 5pm there is not much left except lots of nice memories and photos. For those who can not get enough exposure to vintage cycle stuff this is the show to go to and bring a truck or trailer. It is a low key event with lots of antique American motorcycles but also a mixture of other antique and classic bikes. Smith was a senior captain in the season when Donovan was a freshman. Originally from Bristol, Conn.

Inhe headed west, assuming the head coaching position for the Billings Mont. Aquatic Club as well as assisting with several area schools. Taking over teams that were floundering in the water, Donovan and Smith were able to kick-start their programs and get them back up to speed. Donovan said all the pieces were in place for a successful swim program. Calming the waters after a merger and several coaching changes, Donovan began to see results in the pool.

Under his direction, the Somerset Valley team went from last place to winning five New Jersey State Championships Donovan's athletes have won countless local, regional, and national honors, including four individual YMCA National Champion designations and seven relay titles. Many of his swimmers have gone on to compete at several top college programs, including his alma mater. Under his direction, BAC has won numerous state championships and is starting to make a splash at the regional level.

At one point or another, he has coached all three of the city's public high schools and is now the coach for Billings Central High School. Not expecting to make waves, Smith has prospered despite being in the same local swimming zone as legendary Olympians Mike Burton, Tom Jagar, and David Berkoff. Smith's BAC teams have won four short course yard pool and three state long-course championships.
