The third annual Great Western Rally, organised by the Motor Cycle Action Group (MAG), which campaigns for improvements to the bikers' lot, combines a boozy weekend at a campsite, and a meeting where speakers highlighted a recent spate of bike thefts and the rise in insurance premiums. Craig Clinch of Bath MAG said: 'High insurance and thefts are discouraging young people from taking up bikes.' He was supported by Jeff Manning, a Liberal Democrat Bath councillor and motorcycle enthusiast whose machine was recently stolen. He said: 'I hope to encourage the council to expand and improve parking facilities for motorbikes.'
