Several members of the motorbike group were seen blocking the traffic by parking their bikes across the roundabout exits to stop traffic coming onto the roundabouts and allowing the whole group of riders to pass through the town together.

It is not known why the motorbike riders were passing through Basingstoke in such a large group.
