ALMOST 200 riders took part in the 56th annual Benson veteran cycle rally.
Visitors gathered on their pre-1928 machines in the Sunnyside playing field before setting off on a 13-mile route earlier this month.
Riders passed through Benson Aerodrome for a mid-morning stop at Tithe Barn, in Ewelme.
They then rode on to Chalgrove and after lunch followed a circular route back through Berrick Salome and Roke.
Chairman Michael Coleman, 74, from Abingdon, said: “It was a very event and a good turnout.
“Everybody seemed to enjoy it and it all went off without any accidents. There were a few hiccups but all in all it went very well.
“We have people from all over the country — they come down from Grimsby, Suffolk and up from Devon and Dorset.
“I think it’s the welcoming nature and the atmosphere. We get a lot of cyclists following on modern bikes from London and various places. I hope it continues for many years.”
Thirty-five people alsoÂ entered on the day.
