Following the introduction, three years ago, of a riding event especially for small and inexpensive bikes, the Pip Squeak Run was launched, and the Glasgow section of the VMCC are running this popular event again on April 14.
More than 40 riders of sub-100cc bikes joined the fun last time, and organisers Gordon Mowat and John Shaw say that, once again, an interesting route through rural Ayrshire, with only minor challenges, will be on offer. Entries are open to all riders of small bikes, whether or not they are club members.
Such has been the success of this event, with riders from all over Scotland and the north of England taking part, that the idea has been ‘cloned’ by other VMCC sections.
The Reivers Section are running their own version in Northumberland on April 28, and the Central Scottish section will also be laying on their version around south Tayside towards the end of September. We await news as to whether this fantastic idea takes off further south!
