▶ BATH CLASSIC MOTORCYCLE CLUB

Bath Classic Motorcycle Club is a bunch of biking enthusiasts who enjoy a classic way of life. But what exactly is a classic bike? Who knows! - we certainly don’t appear to. That’s why if you attend many of our events you will see all sorts of bikes of all ages. Whilst our competitions (trials & scrambles) and some specific classic events are run for older bikes, entered in classes according to age and eligibility, many of the regular road runs are far more relaxed, with a variety of bikes, old and new being welcome. You would be suprised how many 'modern' bike riders who join us get sucked into the 'classic' way of life and eventually start looking for an older bike! We have members who have all sorts of classic European, American and Japanese bikes. Fancy joining us? Have a look round the website then come along to one of our regular meetings. If you enjoy anything to do with motorcycles you will find many kindred spirits amongst our members.
