Over a few beers, a mad idea was formed –
“I know, lets all buy a moped for £300, under 100cc and do a Charity Ride around the lanes of Cheshire” –
In a little more detail, the organisers wanted to establish a Construction Industry based event, where “pilots” would purchase a moped or similar small engined bike for under £500 and take part in a ride-out, taking in some of the lovely Cheshire countryside and raise some funds for a nominated charity in the process. For the inaugural event, the ride set off from Bramhall and concluded at the now named MotoGiro Costruzione at Wincle Brewery, in beautiful setting, just outside of Macclesfield.
Motogiro Costruzione is the brainchild of the MG team,- a group of Construction professionals with a slightly unhinged approach to life. Combining their love of two wheels, ale, music, great food and a good challenge has created this unique event.
MotoGiro Costruzione is a celebration of all the above.
MG grows each year, and last year (2022), we raised an unbelievable amount for CRASH Homeless Charity – Just over £4500 was raised!! We are aiming to smash that again this year!
If you are reading this, you will probably have been convinced by one of the team to partake in what will be ‘THE alternative construction event of 2023.’ The main aim of MotoGiro Costruzione is to bring like minded members of the Construction industry together – building bonds, raising money for charity and forming a relationship with an under-powered, ageing moped that you would not believe was possible.
Entry to MotoGiro Costruzione is by invitation only – You are a very lucky person
In the inaugural MG19 event – we had a healthy 16 pilots on the ride from the Pointing Dog in Cheadle Hulme, through the beautiful Peak District to the MG campsite at Wincle Brewery, on the Cheshire / Staffordshire boarder. A 32 mile route tested the 50cc machines to the limit through Gawsworth, Macclesfield Forest and Wildboarclough, with the odd participant having to get off and push…
MG21 stretched the boundaries – taking the trail of two stroke fumes across the Derbyshire Dales. Pilotes stopped to take in the amazing views over the Roaches as they caught their breath from the previous 1/2 mile pushing ‘peds uphill. The afternoon again saw the arrival of the 2-stroke brigade at Wincle Brewery, where the now 60 strong group of Pilotes, their support teams and family were based for the evening. The amazing Dough Truck Pizza provided all with unbelievable pizza accompanied by the fantastic beer from our host brewer, whilst the Danebridge valley hosted our ‘Moped Agility Course.’ The grand finale was the Motogiro Band playing the night out by the campfire.
For the campers there was coffee and a sausage butty for those that wanted before decamping.
MG22 saw a double in the number of Pilotes – smoking out the lanes of Cheshire, before heading back to the Peaks – The aim of the route was to be less tortuous, but aiming for the flat was in the end not quite so successful. There were a number of DNF’s and the support vans were full to the brim!!
Friday 12th May
MG23 will see us discover new territory in the Peaks, starting high and trying to ride the contours to maintain the elevation (but there may be the odd hill) heading over towards the beautiful Manifold Valley.
Food for the evening this year will be a Traditional Hog Roast, with veggie options too.
Sign yourself up and get looking for a moped!! Or come along and support us in the evening in the beautiful Dane Valley.
