About us

In the year 2000 an advert was placed in a local paper by long time scooter rider Pete Hinsley.  In a short time a dozen people had responded and were meeting at a pub in the New Forest.

In 2001 the club was officially formed, the legshield banner and club patch were produced and the club ended the year with 37 members.  Membership has fluctuated over the years and we are currently an active, friendly and thriving group of more than 50 scooter riders and enthusiasts.  Our members mainly live and work in the New Forest area, but also as far apart as Ringwood, Southampton, Gosport and Bournemouth.

 Our aim is to encourage the regular use and enjoyment of two-wheeled motor scooters, mainly Vespas and vintage Lambrettas, but any make of scooter - old or modern - is welcome.

We take part in many regular activities, such as ride-outs every Sunday and monthly meetings in the Mailman pub in Lyndhurst (next to the Ferrari showroom).

To find out more about us and our activities, check out our "What's On" page, come along to our meetings and ride-outs or have a look at our forum for the very latest info on what's happening (you will need to register to look but this is generally a painless experience!)

We hope you enjoy your visit to our site which is updated regularly and please ride safe.
