Veteran Motorcycle Events

Road runs for very old bikes, ones built before the Great War, are very rare. So news of an entire weekend dedicated to veteran motorcycles is very welcome...

The Vintage Motor Cycle Club in Scotland have organised a long weekend of runs for early motorcycles manufactured in the first 15 years of the 20th century. The weekend starts with the Early Motor Bicycle Run at the Museum of Flight, East Fortune, East Lothian, on Saturday 8 October 2016.

Veteran Motorcycle Events 1914 Indian

This event is organised by Clyde Valley Section of the VMCC. The run is designed to suit the modest performance of pre-1914 machines, hence the choice of the flat terrain of East Lothian. Later machines may be considered eligible to join the run if their design post-1914 remained largely unchanged from the pre-war specification. Details from John Macmillan on 01555 662760 or

The weekend continues with the Glendaruel Veteran Run on the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll. This venue hosts two runs specifically for pre-1915 motorcycles on Sunday 9 and Monday 10 October 2016, being organised by Highland Section. The routes will be easy-going in Cowal and there will be a ferry trip to the Isle of Bute and a run round the Island. Details from Paul Morley on 01369 820287 or .

A number of entrants from Holland plan to attend the weekend riding 1902-08 motorcycles. An open invitation is extended to VMCC members and non-members alike to join in the fun. Expect to see rare early Marques such as Bradbury, Excelsior, Rex, Williamson and the Pebok. The two events are linked with the aim of providing a unique riding experience on the quiet back roads of rural Scotland with spectacular scenery.
