South Wales Section - Calendar of Meetings, Runs, etc. for 2022

The following are the events pencilled in for 2022 and will depend on us finding leaders for some of these.

Event entry forms and other section's calendars, when available, are at the foot of this page.

There is no need to be a VMCC member to attend any 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 events.

If any date has had to be changed then it will be highlighted in bold type. Those events marked as 'no organiser' in bold type may have to be cancelled as no one has come forward to organise them.

Please note that when food has been arranged for an event then you are always welcome to attend, with the food being completely optional.
