I know it's been a weird year, with all of the rallies cancelled and the pandemic turning our lives upside down. Your club probably planned to rally hard all summer before applying to be a branch, meeting lots of new people and gaining legendary status for your wrenching and riding skills. That would have been great, but 2020 had other plans.
Don't let that stop you from applying to be a branch of the Moped Army. We'd love to hear about your club, get to know you virtually, and better understand how you'd represent the Moped Army in your area. Hit up the application page for more info and be sure to submit before the end of the month.
Just to put the word out here on the front page:
We've postponed the Run until 2021, but still plan on riding down the Tail of the Dragon!
check the website, IG, or your local podcast for more info around January or whenever we can all hug again!
Rest in powerbands, Rick
It is with an incredibly heavy heart that we have to inform the community of our beloved Rick Beilec passed this morning.
Rick has been around with the moped community forever. He was a founding member of MCR in 2011 and at that point he already had a barn full of 30+ Le Mopeds, giving him the handle "Moby Rick"
He has the kindest soul, and bent over backwards for people he barely knew. He loves fun and always does what he can to make sure everyone around him is enjoying themselves too. He has a deep passion for anything with a motor. He owns over 50 mopeds, a dozen motorcycles, and over 20 classic cars.
Rick has been one of the dearest members of our family and he will be sorely missed.
Fuck cancer. Pour one out for our brother today. He's with the cashew pipes in the sky now.
Due to covid 19 we have decided to cancel this years run of the Mill rally. We want everyone to stay safe and healthy, and your families to be safe and healthy as well. Looking forward to a time in the future we can all get together again.
Bakers Dozen Run has been moved to September.
With uncertainty around large events (I would love to actually call this a large event one day)
We have moved the Bakers Dozen to September. Post Labor Day will have smaller crowds at campgrounds (you know people are going to go) and gives us a few more months to let things shake out, and maybe to stare at that quarantine build you've got and go "You know what? I can make this thing go 1200 miles no problem...."
This years event was designed for you to enjoy the open road on two wheels, and as anyone who's participated in the past can tell you, you might be spending 19+ hours out there socially distanced. Be Safe, Build Safe
Zeros Rally Cancelled
"whats more important mopeds or moped friends?"
I was asked this question over 10 years ago when I was debating between going to my first rally or ordering new parts, and its shaped my outlook on mopeds ever since. So with that in mind we have decided to cancel our 2020 rally, stay safe, watch some Nic Cage movies, and slam some shitty beers, we'll see you in 2021
LGN Rally Cancelled
FYI: "LGN has decided that since the Gathering of The Juggalos is cancelled, we will also postpone Philly Fun Fist 7 until 2021. I'm surprised you even wanted to attend anyway with our track record. See you all in 2021. Until then, wear a mask and be safe. Pour out a Faygo for all the dead rallies this year."
MOPITT: Yinzf3st Postponed to 2021
Due to current events, we’re bummed as hell to announce that our rally will now be postponed until 2021. Updates to come as time goes on. We all miss yinz terribly. Stay safe and Rage hard from a distance. See you in no time ya jagoffs
"Go Ahead, Call the Cops" Postponed to 2021
Due to the extenuating circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, our sickass rally is now postponed to 2021. We hope to see all you moped dude and dudettes in 2021. Date is TBD.
All rallies cancelled until at least June
I'm sure you've noticed that rallies are being cancelled one-by-one over the last month. Due to the dangers caused by the Coronavirus pandemic we are cancelling all official Moped Army gatherings until at least June. We will revisit the situation at that time, but honestly it's hard to say when it will be safe. Whether you are part of an official club or not, if you are planning a moped event we highly encourage you to postpone until later this year.
Moped rallies are a ton of fun — the lifeblood of this community — but we all need to focus on the safety of friends and family. This is an unprecedented global health emergency and social distancing is our primary weapon against this virus. Let's use this time to wrench on our own. I can't wait to see all the sweet quarantine builds once we can get together again.
