2019 scooter rallies – top tips and dates

Here are the 2019 scooter rallies which have been announced or are likely to take place.  As well as listing the dates, I’ve also included top tips for how to book and where to stay.  I’ve also included links to the websites and Facebook event pages so that you can keep up to date with the ones you want to attend.  Many events aren’t set up yet as it’s too early but I will keep this page up to date as much as possible and add them when they are added to Facebook.

The 2019 national scooter rallies will traditionally be announced at the Bridlington rally in October, so until then I won’t be able to provide a complete list.  In the meantime, if you’re an uber organiser (like me!) then you can book up accommodation in advance using the contact details and websites I’ve linked to below.

2019 scooter rallies 

I have colour-coded each type of event so that they are hopefully easier to read.  Foreign rallies are green, British ones are blue, and parts fairs, alldayers and rideouts are grey.

April 21st : Boxhill Rideout 20
Organised by Area 51 and Lost Souls Scooter Clubs, details will be on Facebook nearer the time.  Sarah George from Area 51 can be contacted in the meantime on 07932 554298 for any advance details.
May 3rd – 6th : Weston-Super-Mare

May 19th : Bulldog Run 10
This is a huge ridout where 300-odd scooters converge on the National Bulldog Rescue in Carron Lane, Midhurst.  Organised by Sarah George and Area 51 SC, details will be on Facebook nearer the time.  Sarah can be contacted in the meantime on 07932 554298.
May 31st – June 2nd : Hayling Island
This rally has already sold out, but you don’t need to stay on site to attend as you can buy a wristband for entertainment on the gate.  It’s well worth checking the Facebook event page, when it has been set up, as unwanted chalets are often sold on to other people closer to the date.   As an alternative, there are other holiday parks just a short walk away from Mill Rythe including Hayling Island Holiday Park and you can also check availability for local hotels via Booking.com here.

June 6th – 9th : Vespa World Days, Zanka, Hungary
There is a single-page website here, and a Facebook holding page here, but no event yet that I can find just yet.  However, this website has information about the type of accommodation on site, which looks really good.  (I’ve only seen the date on a scooter club page so do let me know if it is wrong!)
