What we're about

Welcome! BCC is a motorcycle meet-up group for riders of 2 and 3-wheeled motorized vehicles. It doesn't matter what you ride, only that you ride. Our group is about enjoying the backcountry roads of New England at a leisurely pace in a relaxed social atmosphere.  Rides start a variety of places along Route 128 or 495, or other easily-accessible locations then head out for some great country roads. The ride could be a few hours or a full-day. We even do multi-day rides.  “It's the not the Destination, It's the Journey.”

About our Rides...
A posted ride will have a reasonable map of the ride and a list of planned stops. We usually end up near or where we started and plan rest stops with bathrooms and fuel every 60-90 minutes within a ride.

Rides are typically planned to avoid highways, but if we have to use one you will know before signing up for a ride and we'll keep the highway travel to a minimum.  Our ride leaders set a pace that is within 5-10 MPH of the posted speed limit. If you have the need for speed, this isn't the group for you.

Rides often stop for a casual meal, ice cream, etc. along the way and we generally avoid chain restaurants.

Riders are always welcome to leave a ride early, but please communicate this with the Ride Leader so that no one is waiting and wondering.

We’re also about safety...
We believe in "Safe Riding Skills" which includes our members having a minimum of 1- year or 2000 miles of riding experience, and understanding the MSF Group Riding protocol. Here's a good, 10-minute video on group riding. Bottom line - you must be comfortable with, and have the riding skills necessary to safely ride in a staggered motorcycle formation, maintaining a 2-second gap between you and the bike in front of you, without drifting from side to side in your lane or lagging behind. You must also be able to understand, act on, and pass along group safety hand signals. Click here for the MSF hand signals that we use.  Ride leaders conduct a safety briefing before each ride including a review of commonly used hand signals.
