GALLERY: Boston Bike Night

Thousands of people attended Boston Bike Night on a hot Thursday evening – in what is being described as a record year for attendances.

The annual event, organised by the Boston Motorcycle Riders Association (BMRA), saw hundreds of bikes of all shapes and sizes line up in the town centre.

So popular was this year’s event that the machines and crowds stretched out of Bargate Green and Strait Bargate to fill the Market Place, creating a huge expanse of gleaming metal.

Event manager David Simpson said: “It was breath-taking – probably our best ever.”

He offered thanks to all those who took part and contributed towards the event.
