The Chiltern VMCC is a very active Section with runs, speakers and social events. If you have an interest in older bikes do come along, introduce yourself and join in!

Past times

When I became secretary for the Chiltern Section one of the first things I was asked to attend for the section was an Anglian area meeting. It was a fair way to go, and I noticed there was another meeting much closer in Oxford, I asked other committee members what it was all about, they said the Section was not in the Anglian area, we were in the Southern Region of the VMCC and we had the photo album to prove it! Well after some discussion with head office we were shuffled into the Midland area, but here are some of the photo's from the Southern Region album.
