Venice Vintage Motorcycle Rally: October 22nd!

The 4th annual Venice Vintage Motorcycle Rally will be held on Saturday, October 22nd at the Venice Farmer’s Market lot at S Venice Bl and Dell Ave.

Venice Vintage Motorcycle Rally

While the rally primarily celebrates the passion & preservation of classic motorcycles, the Venice Vintage Motorcycle Club (VVMC) invites enthusiasts from all walks of biker life to ride down and join in the day’s fun.

Even if you don’t “love” motorcycles, this free event is highly recommended just so you can check out the artistry of the vintage machines! All the bike owners are super nice and passionate about the machines, so it is a great way for non- bike owners to learn about bikes!

As always, the VVMR is a FREE event thanks to the Venice Neighborhood Council’s support!

There will be a morning ride through Santa Monica and Malibu which will gather at 9am and depart at 10am. At 11am there will be live music, bike exhibits and judging, retro pin-up girl contest, beer garden and a BBQ with proceeds benefiting AHRMA.
