Venue packed for Isle of Wight scooter rally

A scooter rally that was held on the Isle of Wight last weekend was a big success, with organisers forced to turn dozens of people away from the packed venues.

As many as 200 individuals who wanted to go to the International Scooter Custom Show at Planet Ice in Ryde were not able to get in to the event as it was already full.

The Isle of Wight County Press reports that the rally is proving to be as popular as ever, three decades since it first took place on the island.

Simon Townshend, who is the brother of The Who guitarist Pete, was among the musicians to perform live for the thousands of people who were in attendance at the Isle of Wight event.

More than 100 pristinely restored vintage scooters were on show at the rally for the attendees to enjoy over the course of the bank holiday weekend.

Planet Ice is a popular location to visit for families on Isle of Wight holidays, as it is situated in the picturesque town of Ryde.
