A Bird From Aylesbury

Aylesbury Apocalypse

Attention all Armageddon Wastelanders, Zombie Apocalypse Marauders and Mad Max Petrolheads reads the Facebook page for the Apocalypticus: Road to Ruin event. It caught my eye some time ago.

On the weekend on 21st-23rd September this year the page tells us, around 400 people will be enjoying a “full on Armageddon” event. Everyone who attends is expected to dress in an appropriate way for the whole weekend. It's at Westcott.

Then a few weeks ago, the organisers made a Facebook announcement to say they were having a promo day in Aylesbury town centre, and anyone who had a fallout or ratted vehicle or who dressed like a wasteland ravager was welcome to be part of the event. I have a rat bike, so I let organiser Pete Roberts know I was coming.

On the Saturday I rode to Kingsbury Square in Aylesbury and here’s what I found.

look at the Apocalypticus site at Westcott.

road. Apart from Kittypocalypse, (and it should be soon)
all these vehicles are road legal.

battered armour plate on the front is really flexible
