For the second year in succession, the Mid Lines VMCC Boxing Day gathering was thwarted by icy roads. The Market Rasen market place surface was still under six inches of packed ice, along with the minor roads which would have made up the route for the ride out, so in the name of safety the option was to either use the main road to the prearranged coffee stop or simply head off home. There was a turnout of around a dozen hardy souls, including one who'd made the trip from Rotherham - a round trip of some 100 or so miles - and another from Derby who'd called in on his BMW combination en route to the seasidel
Many took the opportunity for a breath of fresh air, coming along to exchange seasonal greetings, but travelling by car or parking up a distance away and taking a brisk walk. Matchless, Norton, BMW, Velocette, Triumph, Honda and BSA were all represented and under the circumstances, it was a pretty brave effort.
