A brilliant, magical sight happens on the last Sunday in November every year, as hundreds and hundreds of riders dressed as Santa take part in a Christmas cavalcade taking presents to young people at The Christie.

Organised by the Vesperados Scooter Club, every kind of powered two wheeler takes part, from trikes to motorbikes to scooters, all decked out for Christmas. Last year there were also classic cars joining the ride, which was led by a giant sleigh full of presents.

The Vesperados Christie's Santa Run starts from noon at the Henry Boddington pub and anyone going to watch is asked to put a wrapped present or selection box in the sleigh.

I set out in atrocious weather conditions ,to join the scooter Xmas run at The Henry Boddingtons car park,5 minutes before we were due to set off, unfortunately, my bike wouldnt start, & to my dismay, not one fellow scooterist stopped to assist me as I was pushing it to try & start it, everyone left, & I was on my own! I have seen fellow scooterists in the same position, & did not hesitate to help, I WONDER IF IT HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT I WAS ON A LAMBRETTA? VERY PISSED OFF!
