Firstly well done to those infamous Santa Riders - not only did they bring festive cheer around the CBD and Harbour, they donated to charities of their choice and with 8 attendees on the ride Vespa Club Sydney donated $20 per rider for a total of $160 to be donated to the winning charity Starlight Foundation with 13 votes !! Well done VCS Members...

Expressions of interest: Feel free to contact or join us for the Vespa Club Sydney breakfast on 9 January to chat about plans and options. Places are somewhat limited due to local accommodation


Also feel free to suggest events that you would like to lead or ride in. We are a club for all and we are far better as a club with input from all.

Wishing everyone all the best for the new year riding our Vespa's, making friends and enjoying life in 2022 !!
As John F Kennedy may have once said about his local Vespa Club in Washington D.C. "ask not what your Vespa Club can do for you, but rather what can you do for your Vespa Club"
