The full 2017 calendar may not currently be downloaded in printable form - please scroll down to read online

During the summer months there are around twenty midweek Evening rallies to various pubs, where you will see VMCC eligible motorcycles from the early 1900s to the early 1990s, all within 25 miles of Cheltenham. The venues are chosen for their idyllic location and as nearly all serve bar meals, they are the ideal place to have a pint, something to eat, chat and unwind. The Sunday lunch time, from 12 noon, Meetings in the summer take us to meet members from other local Sections, and Winter Wanderings take place one Sunday Lunchtime, from 12 noon, a month from October to March. There are also Gatherings on Boxing Day and New Year's Day for those with an iron constitution. The Cotswold Section has many other events during the year with something for everyone, with a series of winter sporting trials and road events. V.M.C.C. Members are also given the opportunity to ride in other competitive events which include Road Racing, Trials, Grass Track and Sprinting.

From Apr to Sept inclusive, the club night on the last Wednesday of the month will be at the Haw Bridge Inn, nr Tirley (GL19 4HJ, SO 845 278)

On our Wednesday evening Club Nights during the winter months we have many interesting talks and film shows at the Churchdown Club, Church Road, Churchdown (GL3 2ER, SO 886 198) by the 'Free Parking' sign, opp. the Chinese Takeaway which is next to the Old Elm Inn (ex Bat & Ball). (Map here) where we also welcome any new members.
