VMCC postpones flagship banbury run

The Vintage Motor Cycle Club (VMCC), the largest and best-known vintage and classic motorcycle club in the UK, has suspended section meetings, and will not be attending shows or holding runs because of the coronavirus pandemic. Formal or social runs may take place at the section committee’s discretion, but should not include pre-run gatherings or stops at cafes, public houses or suchlike: if that is not practicable, the event should be postponed or cancelled.

The club is also asking its sections to consider the situation of elderly or infirm members who may live alone and/or need additional assistance. “Phone calls would in general be better than house calls but please do think about those who may need a hand or a friendly voice that cares,” the VMCC points out.
The Founder’s Relay Rally planned for Sunday 3 May has been postponed and the club’s flagship event, the Banbury Run, has been re-scheduled for16 August 2020. 

Contingency plans are being put in place for the Festival of 1000 Bikes.
“I fear that in the short-term things are going to get worse rather than better and that it may well be some time before the club can resume its normal activities,” said general manager Ian Botham.
