The Founder's Relay Rally is a National biennial event held in memory of the founder of the VMCC, Charles Edmund Allen O.B.E., B.E.M; affectionately known by many as “Titch”.
The Rally is open to all members riding a machine of 25 years or older. After signing on, you collect a free Rally Plate and ride to as many checkpoints as you wish around the UK.
The VMCC issues a sheet within the monthly VMCC Journal before the event giving details of each numbered checkpoint, its hosts, location, telephone number and directions, as well as thei approximate location on a map; there are also spaces for stickers which can be collected from each location visited.
Checkpoints are staffed 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.
Organised this year by the Cheshire and North Wales Section, more details are available here.
The North Cotswold Section will stage a checkpoint outside the Lygon Arms in Chipping Campden. Please volunteer to staff the checkpoint if you are not riding the event.
