6.  Events

Rides and other club activities are only accessible to members, unless expressly communicated. Members of other Vespa clubs are also welcome at the annual ride-out.

Under the motto 'good agreements make good friends', here are some points of interest during the rides:

 

   Before departure ​​

  • Please be on time for the appointment

  • Vespa drivers who ride in Belgium with a valid B driving license should take into account that in all neighboring countries an A1 driving license is required to be allowed on the road with a 125cc.

  • At the start of a ride, everyone makes sure that he/she and his/her vehicle are in good condition. This means: fully fueled, correct tire pressure, and protective clothing (helmet, jacket, long pants, gloves and footwear above the ankles)

  

   On the way

  • Ride staggered and as compact as possible, especially with more than 10 riders this is important for safety!
  • Stick to the highway code
  • When performing a manoeuvre, never blindly follow the vehicle in front. Check whether the road is indeed clear

  • Always give the necessary hand and foot signals to those behind

  • If someone has a problem, this will be passed on by sounding the horn

  • The road captain who drives at the back is and always remains the last driver

 

   On arrival

  • Leave room for pedestrians, prams and wheelchairs

  • Do not park on private property
