Ipswich Transport Museum had its first cycle event on this Bank Holiday Monday; it was aimed at pedal cycles, mopeds, autocycles and cyclemotors.  In addition to the Museum’s usual display of cycles and motor cycles, there were three extra indoor areas for the extra bikes that were there for the day, plus a load more outside.  There was also a small cycle jumble area.  Not only were there several very rare (some unique) machines to see, but also the chance to see some of them in action.  The Museum has four Sinclair C5s and vistors were encouraged to try them out.
