Scoot into Cleethorpes for the Scooter Rally

There's a touch of the 60s nostalgia in Cleethorpes this weekend as the Scooter Rally really made itself felt in our resort.

Scooter club members from all over the country gathered together for a mod weekend.

Things like The Italian Job, Casino Royale, parkas, Union Jacks and The Who came to mind as I walked past hundreds of scooters parked up on the prom.

As the hundreds of scooters made their way along the prom to gather near The Establishment, there was a bit of a traffic jam as cars and cycles tried to get onto the prom approaching the other way, pedestrians were weaving in and out of cars and scooters. 

Even the Tonka Train seemed to be in the way.

 I don't see why they couldn't have closed the prom road off  and let the scooters make their grand entrance onto the promenade with no interference.

But as it was, they all looked grand as all the individually designer scooters were a sight for sore eyes.

During the weekend our Cleethorpes pubs will play host to them including Gypsy Tears, The Swashbuckle, The Establishment, The Fiddler, The Bootlegger and The Beachcomber, among others.

If you can, get into Cleethorpes this weekend, you'll be tripping up on scooters and I am sure you will marvel at all the different colours, artwork, mirrors, furry bits, and lovingly polished scooters of all makes and sizes.

Let's hope they have a fantastic time in Cleethorpes.
