Snow Ride

We’ve been following the marvellous idiaridellalambretta blog for a few years now.

Written and beautifully illustrated by Silvia Bes there are some interesting articles and travel stories to enjoy.  The latest interview features Ryo Mochizuki’s winter ride in snowy Japan.  Impressive scooter riding!

Coincidentally, this weekend sees the Antwerp Custom Show taking place and their ‘theme’ for this year’s event is “3-wheeled scooters, sidecars, Apes & Lambros.”

ScooterNova magazine will also have a presence at the Antwerp Show this weekend, courtesy of the Lambro Club UK. The Club will have a fine display of three-wheelers in Belgium, including the rare and fabulous FB ‘Gelati’ 3-wheeler, as featured in edition 2 of ScooterNova magazine.

Our friends Scott and Jackie of the Lambro Club will have copies of all editions of ScooterNova for sale (including the brand new number 6), along with a limited range of merchandise including T-shirts and hoodies, so be sure to pop along and see them while at the show this weekend!

ScooterNova Rally Video Part 4

We’ve had a great summer riding to rallies that we’d like to share with you.

In part four we ride to Scotland for the national rally at Kelso, the south east national rally at Big 7, a jolly weekend with the Awfully Pleasant Scooter Association, our cheese and wine soiree by the seaside at Cleethorpes national rally (you can check out the separate video here), the LCGB’s Four Nations rally in scenic Shipson-on-Stour, Wales for the national rally in Llandudno and to York SC’s scooter only rally at Breighton Ferry.

We probably bumped into most of you along the way, so hopefully we caught you and your scooter on camera. If not there’s always the next video to check out…. Cheers!
