Millards 100 Year Bike Show 5th July 2008.

To celebrate our 100 years in Guernsey Millard & Co Ltd  on 5th July 2008  hosted the largest bike show ever in Guernsey. Victoria Road was closed and bikes from all ages were show. At 12 O’clock a 400 Motorcycle Cavalcade (with Police Escort) set off from Bulwer Avenue, St Sampson's led By British Super Bike Rider Michael Rutter &  The fastest man around the Isle Of  Man, John McGuiness  & Steve Clifford (from our sponsors Feridax). The Cavalcade  proceeded along the sea front and through St Peter Port and made its way to Trinity Square. On arrival our celebrities were met by a 1908 Thomas Millard look alike.
