Update on the Coronavirus
We are all still in an extraordinary situation because of the coronavirus. The Swiss Federal Council continues to ban public and private events, including sporting events and club activities. The Federal Council will decide on 27 May whether to relax these measures from June – but it is unlikely that major events will be able to take place again before the end of July.
Therefore, with a heavy heart, but convinced of the correctness of our decision, we inform you that the event VeloSoleX 2020 will be postponed to next year: 18th to 20th June 2021 in Münchenbuchsee.
Please email me and let me know if you’d like: to transfer your registration to 2021, or
to get back your participation fee and decide at a later date whether you want to participate. In this case I ask you to give me your bank details. We will reimburse you the already paid participation fees as soon as possible. Of course, we hope that you all will participate again! And we are looking forward to next year’s event.
The VeloSoleX Society Switzerland presents:
350 participants, many kilometers, 2 days, 1 passion
An event organized by fans for fans. A weekend spent talking shop, admiring, discussing, eating and drinking. And of course we will go for a ride together, driving over hill and dale, through woods and meadows, passing magnificent castles and picturesque villages. A challenge for humans and machines.
A driving Solex is necessary for the participation at the ride. But our event is for everyone who already knows the Solex or would like to get to know it. During the supporting program there will be much to see.
Status 4.3.2020: 90 participants from 4 countries. You will find a detailed overview on the map.

Up to 350 Solex on tour together! We will be exploring the beautiful “Seeland” (land of the lakes) between Bern, Biel and Solothurn together.
Our tour planner is currently on the road come rain or shine in order to find the route that is both the most scenic as well as the most suitable for Solex.
Besides the excursions there is enough time on Saturday afternoon and Sunday to sit together and chat about, well, Solex of course 🙂
In addition, there are various Solex parts sellers and other exhibitions and attractions. And to top it all off, there will be a raffle on Saturday evening where you can win a Velosolex! This will be completely restored and painted by Martin from “Dreams in Colors”.
The unique VeloSoleX 2020!

Only five Solex minutes from the venue and a real bargain! For only 20 CHF/EUR per night you can reserve a bed in a dorm of Münchenbuchsee’s troop accommodation. You can also park your Solex in a covered area there.
There are only 100 beds!
Saal- und Freizeitanlage
Parking area for two-wheel and four-wheel vehicles is available.
From Münchenbuchsee, the route takes us through the regions of Canton Bern and Solothurn. There is plenty of nature, vineyards, modern towns, picturesque villages, castles, nature reserves and baroque towns.
The organising committee consists of three crazy friends. They have set themselves the insane goal of attracting Solex fans from all over Europe to tiny Switzerland.
– chair, marketing & program –
The versatile self-made Solex rider! She feels at ease both in the artist’s workshop and in the garage. Responsible for imposing order on the chaos.
– infrastructure, catering & routes –
A solex rider of the second generation with two-stroke oil pumping through his veins. He is responsible for the roof over our heads and the food in our stomaches.
– staff, finances & communication –
Mechanics? No idea! She is, however, full of passion for Solex and a big fan. Our greenhorn’s Solex is still sitting in the cellar in single components. There’s a lot to do and a lot to learn.
Together we are strong! Your support is celebrated and praised.
