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.

If you know of any 2019 scooter rallies which I have not included then do send me details and I will add them. I would also love to include any of your own tips! You can contact me here.
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.
Here is the Facebook page for this event which is being organised jointly betweeen South West Scooter Clubs and scooter clubs from all over Australia. If the hotels mentioned on Facebook have sold out then you can look for other hotels via Booking.com here.
To be held at Wunderland Kalkar. This website gives all the info you need including booking details for accommodation and the programme of entertainment for the weekend.
For further details email firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a SWSC rally and to book accommodation here is a link to the Devon Valley holiday village website. At the time of writing there are a few caravans left and plenty of chalets. To book, call 0344 557 5100.
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.
This is another SWSC rally and if you don’t fancy staying on the campsite then you can check hotel availability on Booking.com here.
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.
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.
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!)
Details can be found on the Facebook event here. If you want to get in early with hotel accommodation then you can see what is available in the Zakopane region here on Booking.com.
Full entertainment programme and camping will be at Rockcliffe Rugby Club. If you’d rather stay in a B&B then here are some options from Booking.com.
To be held at Carrick-A-Rede Bar, Main Street, Ballintoy, Co Antrim, Northern Ireland. Camping, secure parking, top rally DJs and custom show. If you’d rather stay in a B&B or holiday cottage then there is plenty of choice on Booking.com.
The Coopers Arms, Pewsey, Wiltshire. The Facebook event is here and for details contact Mark on 07801 532981 or Mona 07880 622144. If you don’t want to camp then there are some sweet cottages and B&Bs available on Booking.com here.

Did you know that Crusader Promotions print the national rally patches, the VFM and SWSC rally crew t-shirts and a lot of club shirts including the Midhurst Detours SC ones you see me wearing on the rallies?
