In those less hurried times a group of Warwickshire Cyclemotor enthusiasts had regular gatherings for social runs and they subsequently formed a club called the "Magic Wheelers" ; -
Around 1980 some members of the VMCC who had for some time championed their "pop pops" or "Wilfreds" as they were called, alongside the larger machines they owned decided to form their own Cyclemotor group.

We organise a healthy programme of events each year – currently around 17 riding events, and several static displays both within and outside of the VMCC. We are pleased to see that many Regional Sections also incorporate cyclemotor-
Many of our road runs have been happening for a long time. Amongst these are the annual 100 miler, an event held over a 33⅓ mile route, which can be ridden three times for those stalwarts who want to gain a prestigious 100 mile badge for their efforts. It began around 1983, and has attracted over 60 riders on several occasions. It has had a few different starting points, but is currently operating from Quainton Memorial Hall in Buckinghamshire.
We also hold camping weekends, the current venue being at Peacehaven Farm, Ickford, by kind invitation of our friend Ivan Dutton, renowned Bugatti specialist and small machine enthusiast. All in all, we have events starting in January, going through to November when we hold our last proper run of the year which is combined with our AGM. Details of all our events can be found on the events page of this website.
We hope that anyone with even a mild interest in these little machines will feel inspired to come and see us at any of our events, but beware – the regular advice to newcomers is that this hobby is addictive! The size of many of our members’ collections is proof of this fact !
