A novel run is being organised by Auld Reekie Edinburgh (ARE) Section of the VMCC to give non-members a taste of Club life and action on September 24 2016.

The novelty is to combine a road run from a central starting point (Lochside Bistro, Loch Leven, Kinross) with a social get-together at the halfway lunch stop (Crieff Visitor Centre, Crieff).

The event is tailored to classic motorcycles from the 1970s through to 1991 with a run of around 100 miles on A and B roads but any machine made prior to 1992 is eligible to enter.

Alastair Alexander, VMCC Area Rep. for Scotland, said: “Many enthusiasts do not know that bikes made from 1991 or earlier are eligible for VMCC events. The 1970s and 1980s were dominated by Japanese motorcycles and we are keen to see them and meet their owners on the day.”

The Club is keen to attract new members and for this reason there is no entry fee and two ways to enjoy the day:

  1. The “Ride Out” will leave the Lochside Bistro from 10.30am for a run around Perthshire to the lunch stop at the Crieff Visitor Centre.
  2. From about 12.30pm, individuals can “Ride In” and meet us there for a chat and/or get a bite to eat.

Alastair also added: “Spectators are most welcome to come along to the start at Kinross from around 9.00am and at the lunch stop. Kinross and Crieff were chosen because of their accessibility to riders from all over Scotland and beyond. Come and join us and see what the VMCC has to offer.”

Entry forms are available from ARE Section Secretary, George Plumb on 01313 333336 or
