Edinburgh VMCC Hosts Vintage and Classic Runs‏

Posted on


Scotland has some of the best roads and scenery in the UK so if you fancy the experience there are two great opportunities coming up in the autumn being organised by the VMCC’s Auld Reekie Edinburgh (ARE) Section.

The weekend of 5-6 September will be the occasion of the Sixth Scottish Gathering for veteran and vintage motorcycles and held in the Rosetta Holiday Park, Peebles. The Gathering is the premier event in Scotland for pre-1931 motorcycles. There will be a social run on the Saturday afternoon followed by an evening get together in the, on site , Hayloft Bar and the main run will start on the Sunday morning from the Rosetta Park. Regs. are available from Ralph White on [email protected] or 0131 334 4144.

ARE Section is breaking new ground with the Auld Reekie Classic Run on Saturday 19 September.

The venue is the Boathouse Bistro on Loch Leven in Kinross, Perthshire. The run, of over ninety miles, is open to all machines up to 1990 but is designed for riders of the later classics from the 1970s and 1980s. Alastair Alexander , Area Rep. for the VMCC in Scotland and ARE Chairman, said “ARE Section has been very active in recent years trying to encourage the older bikes with the Scottish Gathering (pre-1931) and the Demob Runs (pre-1950). The new Classic Run is aimed at widening the appeal of the Section and the Club to the riders of younger motorcycles. There is a myth that the VMCC is just about older British bikes but any motorcycle made before and including 1990 is eligible for our events. The Section hope that will be a strong entry of the later classics and especially Japanese bikes and to this end will be issuing invitations to all the old bike clubs in Scotland to get involved. So please tell your pals about it and encourage them to come along.” Regs. are available from George Plumb on [email protected] or 0131 333 3336. Both of the Runs are open to non-members at no extra charge.
