Suitable for cyclemotors

Some organisers make special arrangements to make runs suitable for cyclemotors and similarly slow-moving machines.  These runs are marked with a green logo.  A ride doesn't have to be especially short or hill-free to qualify.  Arrangements to prevent cyclemotorists being left behind on their own and getting to the lunch stop half an hour behind all the mopeds are what is needed.

If you'd like an event listed here, please contact us.

1st October

Suitable for cyclemotors

100-miles: suitable for cyclemotors?

The VMCC 100-mile run was first run in 1985 and, in those days, nearly everyone did it on a cyclemotor.  The idea was that the run should be challenging; to experience that properly, you ought to ride a cyclemotor.  A quick three circuits on a moped before lunchtime isn't really what the event is about.

Notes

Many events listed in this calendar are "closed to club members".  The EACC offers free day membership to visiting riders at all its rides.  The NACC, British Two-Stroke Club and the VMCC Cyclemotor Section also offer day membership at selected events, for which there is usually a charge.  The golden rule is: if you want to take part in an event listed here and you do not belong to the organising club, always contact the event organiser to see if you are permitted to take part.

Generally, riders of veteran and low powered machines are also welcome at these events.  Contact the event organiser for details.

Please call at a reasonable hour when telephoning for details of events (not forgetting the time difference if you're 'phoning another country).
