The Vintage Motor Cycle Club

The Vintage Motor Cycle Club, with over 14,000 Members, united by a common appreciation of the engineering skills and vision of those who built the pioneer machines, has ensured that such machines are not preserved as lifeless exhibits in a museum, but are brought to life on frequent occasions in order that a new generation can marvel at the handiwork of the pioneers, and an older generation can once again view with nostalgia the machines they rode in days gone by.

But don't let the word "Vintage" fool you! As well as catering for the very oldest pioneer machines, membership is open to those who have an interest in motorcycles more than 25 years old with many of our members owning modern machines as part of their "stable". We cater for enthusiasts of all ages and levels of experience & you don't even have to own a motorcycle to become a member!

Banbury Run

Banbury 2021 Update

It is with regret that we have decided that the Banbury Run will not take place this year. Given the current predictions on Covid 19 and the amount of work that would be required to run a large event that the authorities would allow, it would be impossible to keep the Banbury Run as our Premier event. We have looked at many alternatives like a simpler, smaller event or holding it later in the year, but we felt that any of the options would have diluted the spirit of the event. In addition, we need to make a decision now to give all participants as much notice as possible and before we undertake a large amount of administrative work and potentially incur non-refundable costs. The Banbury Run will return in 2022.
