Our main event is the 1000 mile ride. Every summer, members gather in a different location for 5 days of backroads, breathtaking landscapes, oil 'n smoke talk, and the pursuit of good "Velo" times amongst friends... Anyone can join, you don't need a Velocette!

Throughout the year, our members also attend or organize other "non-club" rides which we will be sharing on this page.

The Mellow Velo Fellow Ride in So-Cal, The Moto Melee, The Nor-Cal TT, The 49 Mile ride in San Francisco, The Rigid Ride in The Bay Area to name a few. All rides are open to all classic/vintage motorcycles and are not exclusive to Velocette.

If you would like to share a ride with us, please send details to and we will post it here.

We look forward to seeing you on the road...!

Based on the 49 mile scenic drive round San Francisco, this day ride is a great way to meet the Bay Area vintage motorcycle community. An annual event held on the last Sunday of October. All brands of old, pre-1974 (ish) motorcycles welcome. No fee. No club. No rules. Just some friends going for a leisurely ride around San Francisco with pitstops at major landmarks. Great photo opp!

Meet 8AM at the Ramp, back around 1pm for lunch.
