It seems wherever you are in the world, there are people doing fun, crazy challenges on vintage scooters, whether it’s riding from Johannesburg to Durban in SA, Riding Australia from top to toe, or riding 1000 miles from Aukland to the tip of the North Island, and back, over four days. There’s a fair crowd up for it, with team names like The Unpredictables, Team Hungry Snake, The Sons of Anchovy, The Pogans, Team ARSCRAC, and Team Anal Thunder… you might get an idea of the spirit of the event. Entry is open to classic, geared scooters only, and by my count there are twenty or so Lambrettas making the trip, so good luck, and big respect to all the participants, even those on Vespas. And Belladonnas… whatever they are!Find out more on the Mille Miglia webpage, or their Facebook page, here.
Thanks to Phil from the Cambridge Lambretta Club for the heads up.
