London to Brighton

The return of an event that in recent years has been organised by the Surrey Vintage Scooter Club. Again being put on by SVSC along with The Awfully Pleasant Scooter Association and the London Lambretta Club, supported by ScooterNova magazine, LCGB and us, the Veteran Vespa Club.

Starting from Epsom Downs, the route down to Brighton includes a stop-off at Devil's Dyke and will be for 3-speed 8" wheel Vespas and shaft-drive Lambrettas. An expected turnout of some rarefied 1950s machines will be on display from the two Italian marques. Let's hope the sun will be shining as it should make for a lovely ride and quite a spectacle!

If you would like to go on your 1950s Vespa you will need to be quick as the confirmed number of riders attending currently stands at 70, as of Feb 25th. To receive your registration form, email Dez Askill: or Matthew Phillips: For further details, look out for updates on the host clubs Facebook pages.

Some photos below I took at the 2011 & 2013 London-Brighton runs..


I'll be working that Saturday but hope to call in before the off at Epsom Downs to bag a few photos, before heading back to North London. I may see you there - Paul Hart.
