The Radar Run - ideal for cyclemotors

Ride it Day

Every year the FBHVC has its Drive it/Ride it Day on the Sunday nearest to St George’s Day.
The aim of Drive it Day is to increase public awareness of Vintage and Classic vehicles by having as many as possible on the road for one day.  There are many events—see the Federation Website—www.fbhvc.co.uk—for more details.  Several museums have arranged special parking areas and reduced admission fees for anyone arriving in or on an old vehicle.  Or you can just take your old vehicle along to whatever you’d be doing anyway: going to work, going shopping, anything.

28th April—Ride it Day

Note: the 2019 Drive it Day will be a week later than normal to avoid Easter Sunday.

6th 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.
