Event Description



NOTE: In consultation with those who have registered interest in this event, the following tentative dates are being proposed subject to the prevailing COVID restrictions: Wednesday 9th - Friday 11th December. Government announcements on any easing of restrictions are scheduled to occur on 19 October and 23 November. Thank you for your interest in this event and please stay tuned for further updates.

The Australian Classic Scooter Mille is an annual event for riders of classic geared scooters (no modern autos). A genuine test of both rider and scooter, it is held in a different state each year and comprises 2 days riding and navigation over 500-kms a day - all without GPS assistance.

The Mille was to be held in Tasmania but with the uncertainty of COVID-19 restrictions it has been postponed till 2021. Members and Mille tragics Michael King and Craig Trimble approached the club to help organise a Mille-like event in Victoria this year.


Not the Mille 2020 will leave Melbourne Airport early in the morning and cover 1000 kilometres of Victorian country roads over the next two days. Saturday's overnight stop will be in Sale and Sunday's in Mansfield. A presentation brunch on Monday is followed by a leisurely ride back to Melbourne in the afternoon.

This event is for experienced (fully licensed) riders who have sufficient stamina for 8-10 hours in the saddle each day and enough mechanical knowledge to get a scooter going again after a breakdown in a remote location. So if you want to challenge yourself to prepare and ride a classic scooter on an unusual scenic and rewarding reliability tour, Not the Mille 2020 might just be the ticket.

Event and date will be subject to Victorian COVID-19 restrictions that may be in place at the time. For more detailed information, <click here>

Michael, Craig and David.

Thanks Julie, and you need to get yourself going in case of a breakdown so some mechanical knowledge about your scooter would be essential.

Don't be so quick to judge David!

You are such a tease Michael. I can't wait to see the elevation profile for Day 2. Rather flat I suspect.

Not the Mille team have been working away in the background - and the routes are nearly done!
Not giving too much away as yet, but here's the elevation profile for Day 1.... :)
