THE CLUB


RIDE 70s ASD is a Motorcycle Club sport association, promoting, organising and teaching Mototurismo in Italy. Our events are exclusive to members of the RIDE 70s Motorcycle Club. Becoming a member not only entitles you to participate in all the events and trips, but also allows you to use the club’s beautiful motorcycles, receive training on them, and be insured. By joining the club, throughout the year, you will also be abe to participate in all our events held at our RIDE 70s clubhouse in the Republic of San Marino, footsteps from the Marco Simoncelli circuit.

Who we are

It all began in 2011 with the Imola Vintage Garage founded by Pietro and Fabrizio, two passionate motorcyclists both born and raised in Imola, where a passion for engines is literally in the DNA.
As the project grew, it evolved into RIDE 70s Experience, with more bikes, rides, and a brand new clubhouse in a completely renovated beautiful old stable, surrounded by greenery in the heart of the Republic of San Marino. With the years several classic and original motorcycles were added to the collection, but the passion remained the same.

In 2022, Fabrizio decided to part with the garage to focus on other businesses, while Fabio, another insane petrolhead, joined forces with Pietro for the relaunch of the brand as a fully fledged Motorcycle Club dedicated to the sport of Mototurismo.

Today RIDE 70s ASD MC makes available a collection of motorcycles from the seventies to anyone who wants to join the club, to learn about classics and experience a real motorcycle journey in time.†

SHARING

Motorcyclists are known to be extremely protective of their motorcycle.†However, we believe that a shared experience is more exciting.†If you so desire, you will be riding one of the club's motorcycles!†We guarante you†that it will be an unforgettable experience!

A PASSION FOR VINTAGE

"I must have been 4 or 5 years old and was already walking around the pavement of the Imola racetrack.†In the early seventies, my grandfather Gardo regularly accompanied me to see the 200 Miles of Imola, the so-called Daytona of Europe.†I will always carry that experience in my heart.†Those motorcycles, those people, those smells, those noises and colours represent to me pure and genuine motorcycling, driven first of all by passion."††Pietro CP

Ride70s Vintage Experience 2019/10/05

Faq

Why become a member of RIDE 70s Motorcycle Club?
Let's be honest, not only it's well cool to be a member of a vintage motorcycle club in Italy, but it allows you also to ride any of our bikes on any of our tours.

"Owning a vintage bike is very rewarding but also challenging: buy it, restore it, then there is the maintenance…. Not everyone has the time, or the ability to do so, nor the space to store it. Now, however, we have a solution that leaves the burden to others (Imola Vintage Garage, now RIDE70s) and allows you to use it without any worries", with the possibility of riding a different model every time!
[from the magazine "In Moto" issued December 2011]
Where are you located?
Our beautiful clubhouse is in the Republic of San Marino, near Rimini, in the "Italian motor valley".

We will accompany you on fascinating routes through the curves of the Apennines, between Romagna, Tuscany, Marche, Umbria, Sardinia and Sicily.
We will stop at great restaurants and trattorias (not tourist traps!) where you can taste the original cuisine of the area. For tours lasting several days, we will spend the night in lovely farmhouses or hotels located in the most distinctive areas.

There will be frequent stops to enjoy the great traditions of food and wine of central Italy. All of this accompanied by genuine people who are passionate about motorbikes!

There are no difficulties because the entire tour will be taken at an adequate speed. Before the start, we will conduct a briefing, and where needed training, during which we will provide clear instructions on how to ride each bike, focusing on the particulars that should be handled with caution, such as drum brakes or the gearbox being on the right side...
Be aware that these bikes are 40 years old, even if they are perfectly functional! Therefore, the only precautions are maintaining appropriate speed, respecting the bike and ourselves.
Are the motorcycle tours limited to experienced riders?
No, anyone with a minimum of experience in riding any two-wheeled vehicle will be able to fully enjoy this exciting opportunity.

Is it possible to ride with a passenger?
Of course! Passengers are welcome. It is necessary to choose a motorcycle that is fitted as a two-seater and the total weight of rider + passenger may not exceed 120 – 140 kg depending on the bike.

Our tours are planned in the best seasons for the area. Saying that, rain can always happen, and all tours will be undertaken even in case of rain. If the weather conditions are prohibitive at the time of departure and it is expected that the adverse conditions will continue throughout the day, the tour may be postponed/cancelled. In this case, the participants will be given the opportunity to book another tour on a different date based on the availabilities.
Yes, this opportunity is available. Please contact us before booking to check the availability of a personal companion for that date. Naturally, the participation fee will be higher.

Yes, that is possible! Please contact in order to choose the available dates and itinerary together. It will be an exciting and fun experience full of dazzling thrills! A weekend together on our bikes will certainly strengthen the cohesion of your group.
Are there any particular difficulties for a female rider?
Some bikes are a bit more demanding to ride because of their weight and the strength needed to use the handlebar controls. However, we have models that are also suitable for a woman with limited experience. They are light, low and gentle bikes with a bright engine that still can provide a lot of thrills. Girls, especially if they are sporty and adventurous, are always welcome!
What happens if a motorcycle breaks?
All motorcycles are serviced and in perfect working order. However, they are on average almost 40 years old! Some unforeseen setbacks at this age are always a possibility... As soon as possible, we will try to repair the damage on site; otherwise, the bike will be replaced within the shortest possible time. An employee of ours will join us with a replacement bike. During the tours that last several days, an assistance vehicle with at least one spare bike ready for use will accompany us.
