We finally arrived at the rally site for this year’s EuroLambretta in Zakopane, Poland this afternoon. We set off from home last Friday and have ridden our old Lambretta scooters just over 1000 miles and through five countries… so far!
The site was bustling we we arrived and we were soon chatting with friends and fellow Lambretta riders from all over Europe.
Tomorrow (Saturday) you will find ScooterNova magazine helping out on the Lambretta Club Great Britain stall in the ‘market area’ of the rally. If any fellow riders need spares etc for their scooters then the LCGB will as always have the essential get you home stuff, along with their popular range of merchandise too.
The club will also have the latest edition of ScooterNova magazine for sale, as well as previous editions. We will have a small selection of magazine merchandise also available, along with offering subscriptions and renewals for all those who like to do this annually at the EuroLambretta rally, oh and did I mention we have some new, shiny stickers too?
So please feel free to come by and say hello tomorrow to us and the LCGB stall volunteers and have a great time in Poland!

The indie farmer is a chap by the name if Nigel from east London who has set up a new venture for himself, to ‘bring the limelight to’ some of the best independent farmers and small producers the UK, and our thanks go to KenHooperUK who tipped us off about the farmer via Twitter.
At the end of of July, Nigel is hoping to go on a six week scooter tour of the UK, “to bring much needed attention to the small-scale farmers and artisan producers around the country and share my journey with you.”
He continues, “I will be focussing on the the issues surrounding these businesses, and making it easier for the everyday foodie to find and follow an undiscovered treasure trove of beautiful food and hard-working people.”
Nigel is after donations to support his road trip costs – he will be riding his rather battered Vespa S automatic scooter around the UK – and says, “Donations will be met with perks (as listed), and eternal good karma, guaranteed.”
If you want to help you can go here to find out more. If nothing else, hopefully it will turn out to be an interesting Vespa road trip we can all follow and enjoy.
