Who's who? list of current committee
The LCMCC was founded in 1991 by a group of enthusiasts interested in older motorcycles. Since then the focus has broadened to include bikes of any year and country of origin and today you are just as likely to see members on modern machinery as an old thumper.
The club is open to anyone with an interest in bikes and biking whether or not they actually own one! Annual membership is around 170 drawn from Herefordshire and the surrounding counties, and, of course, Wales. Partners and youngsters can join as family members at a cheaper rate.
We do all sorts from shows, runs (with obligatory tea breaks, of course), natters; you name it and someone probably does it. Club nights are held on the first Wednesday each month from 7:30pm at the Bush Inn, Bush Bank, Hereford HR4 8EH. Come along to meet and talk to members; hear visiting speakers on a range of topics during the winter months; show off your bike when the nights draw out, especially on the annual Open Night the first Wednesday in July. The club is very active with runs, shows etc arranged most Sundays from March through to December, along with a monthly mid-week meet. See the calendar of events for details of what is happening when.
A monthly newsletter, The Bush News, gives details of activities, forthcoming events, articles by members, reviews of recent runs, shows visited and so on.
The runs (ride-outs) are popular and over the year cater for all riders and bike types; details of a run's suitability for bike type is given in the run sheet in the newsletter and in the events calendar. The drop-off system is used to ensure no-one gets lost or misses breakfast!
The club is run by a committee which meets on the second Wednesday each month at the Bush Inn; any member is welcome to attend to observe or offer support. All members are invited to contribute to club activities such as manning show stands, putting on a run, writing articles etc or just to come along and take part.
