Mopeds Plus

Mopeds Plus runs are conducted bi-monthly ie. every 2 months. Primarily designed for mopeds and smaller motorcycles/scooters, all riders and machines are welcome. Theses runs cater for the slower rider and there is usually a backup vehicle and trailer available.

See the calendar below for details of their next run.

The history of Mopeds Plus started when a group of crazy motorcyclists decided to have a big day out on autobikes and ride from Birdwood to the Barossa and back. The whole thing grew from there and a lot of older and smaller bikes joined the group to watch the fun.

An event was held in April each year and was called “the Moped Marathon”. Then the  group started conducting bi-monthly events to satisfy the new appetite for this type of entertainment. This is why on our annual program list, the 2nd April run is titled “The Moped Marathon”. The original Moped frantics eventually made application to conduct their activities as part of the COMCC calendar. That was about 16 years ago. Three years ago the situation changed at the Birdwood starting point, our calendar clashed with much larger events at Birdwood and we were forced to change to another location. The general theme is unchanged with almost the same distance covered in the day and we are made very welcome by the Totness Inn at Mount Pleasant where we have a very nice afternoon tea at the end of the days proceedings.
