We have introduced membership fees of £30 per year for member and pillion (£10 per year for pillion only). It runs Jan to Dec. It is due within 7 days of joining. You can earn it back over the year by getting involved. The club if for the members by the members.
So, welcome to the London Motorcycle Touring Club or LMTC as we like to call it. This is a group for like-minded motorcycle touring enthusiasts who are looking to ride further afield for long day trips, weekend breaks, and occasional longer trips within the UK or Europe. It is aimed at riders with a FULL bike licence as sometimes we have to use motorways though always try to avoid them where possible.
Also welcome are people happy to ride as PILLION BUDDIES, so if you're looking for a rider to take you on the back of their bike feel free to ask on any particular rides page and usually someone will be happy to take you as their pillion.
LMTC is open to all bikers with a FULL licence, whether beginners, improvers or very experienced. A number of our members are happy to pass on riding tips and encouragement, so you never need to feel unsure of what to do on a ride. No one is in a hurry!
We believe both the journey and the destination should be enjoyable and not overly rushed. It is pointless speeding head down through beautiful country lanes, so we always focus on enjoying the journey, feeling the freedom of the open road and the sheer beauty of biking!
As for accommodation on trips, this will range from camping, to friends’ houses, to hotels and B&Bs, so there is always something for all pockets and desires. Young and old, male and female, there are no bars, although speed freaks may feel at a loss.
If this interests you and you want to join in on the fun then sign up as a member and see if it suits you. There is a grace period of 7 days until payment is due. Please make sure you put a picture of yourself on your new LMTC profile when you do sign up so we can identify and welcome you at your first ride! This is also club policy so your application will only be approved if you have a picture of yourself clearly showing your face :-) If you choose not to stay please delete yourself, you can always reapply.
