During the past few months quite a few non BMRCO club members have elected to follow our website. You are all most welcome to do so, that is an important function of the site. You obviously have an interest in biking and hopefully in owning a British bike. A big strength of our club is that we are not a one make club and most of us also own “foreign” bikes as well as our Brit bikes. A number of BMRCO members have extensive experience of particular marques and models and will readily assist those in need of advice.
I hope that you find the website content interesting and inspiring. As the riding season gets underway the number of motorcyclists turning up at the Red Lion increases and the spectacle gets more colourful.
If you feel inspired to come along on any Monday evening from 19.00 hrs and check us out then you will be made very welcome. Please do contact any of the club officers if you feel it appropriate. We try to be attentive to those new to the group but inevitably don’t catch everyone. If in the course of time you would like to join the club then you will be very welcome to do so but club membership is not essential in order to enjoy the evenings.
The club is organising Best of British Bike Day on Saturday May 30th 2015 to which all local motorcyclist are invited; if you have a British bike you are invited to park it in the garden of the Red Lion. The featured marque this year is BSA and all BSA riders will be invited to park their steeds in one area. In addition if you possess any British bike that has seen the heat of competition then you are also invited to bring it along and show it. Already some interesting bikes have been offered (Norton PR Commando, Manx Norton) as well as an Egli Vincent with a famous sprinting history. I am working on getting some scrambles machinery to be brought along. If you have an competition bike gathering dust in your workshop and you would like ti include it please contact one of the club officials.
On Saturday June 13th the club is organising Italian Day, again in the garden of the Red Lion and all riders of Italian machinery are invited to ride their bikes into the garden area of the pub. Last year some 120 Italian bikes gathered in the garden with more at the front of the pub.
The Velocette Owners Club (Oxford Section) also meets at The Red Lion on the 2nd Monday of every month so this provides additional interest with machines dating from the 1940s to the 1970s turning up. This local section of the VOC has it’s own website with relevant information.
Details of forthcoming events can be found in previous information “posts” on this website and a listing of planned events is shown in “Activities”.
We look forward to seeing you.
