What we're about

A very friendly club with hundreds of members who enjoy the social side of biking. This is one of the closest bike clubs to London that has the best roads available for pleasure seeking two-wheelers. Anyone from 125s upwards is welcome and we structure most rides to allow faster riders at the front and slower ones at the back - using our corner marking system everyone will meet up eventually at the next cafe stop. That said, we do not encourage road racing and reckless disregard for speed limits. There is enough fun to be had at legal speed limits if you do it properly.

For anyone who enjoys riding a motorbike on the open road.
"Thanks Debs for reminding us of the mindful elements of a ride like this. We concentrate on the road surface, gravel, sleepy drivers, rider in front etc, but at our pace today we had time to see all the stuff around us. The Kites and the blue flax made it for me. I saw the de Havilande Rapide biplane from Duxford and a Hurricane today. And, clouds that dumped on me!"
Ton-up Tony from Eddie Fazers Finchingfield ride on 23rd July 2017

If you agree with any of this, please meetup with like minded individuals for rideouts in a group. Absolutely anyone who loves biking is welcome, young, old 125cc to 2500cc. Venture out and connect with like minded individuals. Come on, lets ride!!

He/she should point with outstretched arm the direction to take. • A junction where we proceed straight on may not be marked. • When all riders have passed the Marker they will be 'collected' by the last man on the ride - Tail End Charlie(or tailgunner). • The marker should keep a lookout for the TEC who will be wearing a hi-vis vest. Marker should safely pull away before the TEC reaches them. • If you have not used the marker system before, do not worry. Just start the ride as one of the last people leaving and watch everyone else before it gets to your turn.
