Velosolex Club U.K.

The only club for owners & enthusiasts, dedicated entirely to the Solex   

Another Solex-friendly event planned for 1st - 3rd June 2018 in Rotherham

Posted by Paul G on October 16, 2017 at 4:10 AM

The following information is provisional and was first published on the E.A.C.C. Forum 16/10/17. Further updates will be added as soon as they become available.

Hi fellow E.A.C.C. members.

We are going to run an E.A.C.C. event the first w/end in June 2018. Camping will be available for those travelling long distances. There will be rides out over the w/end [and a recovery vehicle]. I have also posted this event on one of our sister forums, the Mobylette/Raleigh forum, where some interest has already been shown.

The event will be open to all autocycle / moped / solex riders. All our rides will be under the guidence of E.A.C.C. ROAD MARSHALS. One lead bike and one sweep bike at the rear, [breakdowns]. This should be a good w/end, but if some members want to camp the whole w/end that's fine or just come as a day rider. The provisional ride set off times will be approx 10-30 a.m. like last year. We are also the northern section of the E.A.C.C., so hope it generates good comradeship between fellow riders and a good time is had by all. We may also have some Velosolex riders in attendance, but as we do ride at a sedate pace there will be no need to wait for anyone as we will ride as a club group.

This is one of the main points of doing events like this, so velo/moby/puch/raleigh/nsu etc,all riders will be made very welcome. People may also like to bring a friend or two. I know its a fair way off at the moment, but time soon goes by. So, just after Xmas I will be getting things in motion.

Anyone wanting to contact me please dont hesitate, [john] MOBYMAGIC@GMAIL.COM

Watch this post for developments.

Another date for the diary. If organisers are finally realising the Solex is not a speed machine and are prepared to cater for our slower riding pace, the least we can do is to support their event and make their efforts worthwhile.

Put it in the diary and let's make it a good event.

Paul G.
