South Wales Section - Calendar of Meetings, Runs, etc.

There is no need to be a VMCC member to attend one of our club nights and likewise most of our riding events.
In fact, if you're just interested in anything two or three-wheels, ancient or modern, then you would be most welcome to come along and have a look at us. Riding events start at 10.30am, unless otherwise stated. Club nights start at 7.30pm, unless otherwise stated.
Those events listed in blue are not section events, but are events that I know our members attend during the year.
Entry forms, when they become available, will be attached to the event.
If anything has to be changed then it will be highlighted in bold type.
