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...!

So what is Moto Melee?

"Well, it's a three-day ride with 850 miles of back-roads adventure for pre-1971 motorcycles with a START/FINISH in San Francisco. Established in 1998 by enthusiasts Jeff Guzaitis and Harley Welch, the Moto Melee was the natural progression from their wildly successful California Melee classic sports car rally.

Entry is limited and priority is always given to early entries and unusual bikes.
