Information

Formed in May 2016 as there was no dealership or TOMCC within 40 miles and clearly a lot of passion about the bikes from a number of perspectives. We have grown to almost 80 members in 11 months , cater for everyone and are finding our way with more people coming forward to assist its making the organising of activities easier. We are very much about inclusion and welcome members of all ages and abilities and interests and only ask that people actively participate and respect others views. There is a great range of experience and knowledge amongst members ,who, if they cant help personally can generally signpost to someone who can.

We are very much for the members - if a number of people want to do something then we will do our best to enable it - not everyone was interested in lots of rides so although we have done many we have also had raffles, a barbeque, Skill learning sessions, a christmas dinner , guest speaker etc, and now have an events calendar with a variety of activities up to October 2017.

The event starts at 10am and if previous years are anything to go by will see the North Shields Low Lights Car Park packed with custom and vintage machinery sure to impress. Local rockers This Machine will provide a biker friendly soundtrack of heavy rock from the likes of AC/DC,Skid Row,Velvet Revolver and Motorhead. Events draw to a close at three after the prize giving. Spend some time looking at the vast array of bikes this event always attracts (There is a small entry fee in support of the R.N.L.I. Then a ride down to Witton Castle for the new Classics Show Witton Castle Witton Le Wear BISHOP AUCKLAND DL14 0DE Although it's listed as a classic car and historic vehicle show, we were invited to have a stand - so there will most likely be other bike clubs displaying. We chose not to have a stand, as we wish to support the more local Quay bike show on the same day. We hope that some of our more 'Southern' branch members might meet us at this event.
