Yesterday we visited the Hot Rod Hayride at Bisley. My impressions are that the number of camping Hayriders were there in larger numbers than previous years, although with pretty much the same number of Hot Rods and classic American cars, though more motorbikes – not the flashy street road rocket kind, but a mixture of grungy and custom chopper bikes.
The atmosphere was as relaxed and enjoyable as we’ve found in 2014, 2013, and earlier, in the Hayrides we’ve attended. This year I resisted the temptation to buy another 1950’s American Hawaiian-type shirt. I certainly wasn’t out of place in wearing it yesterday.
One other difference I noticed this year, there were more of the rods and cars on the showground for sale. No prices were quoted.
This is part 1 of my report on the Hayride, next I’ll post a short video of the event,
