Every two years the VMCC Runs an event called the Founder's Relay Rally, held in memory of the founder of the VMCC, Charles Edmund Allen O.B.E., B.E.M (affectionately known by many as “Titch”).
This event is open to all members riding a VMCC eligible machine and, after signing on; they have the opportunity to collect a free Rally Plate and ride to as many checkpoints as they wish throughout England, Wales and Scotland.
The VMCC issues an A5 sheet within the monthly VMCC Journal before the event that is distributed to each VMCC member. Details of each numbered checkpoint, its hosts, its location, its telephone number and directions, as well as their approximate location on a map of the UK are included within, there are also spaces for stickers which can be collected from each location visited.
Checkpoints are manned by volunteer members who open up their homes and garages and, very often, kindly supply refreshments in the form of teas, coffees, sausage and bacon butties and cakes etc. All in all it is great fun and an opportunity for members to enjoy riding their bikes to travel and meet other members from different sections. So, if you missed it this year, why not join us for the next Founders Day Relay Rally in 2016?
