Grampian Region consisting of three areas, Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Morayshire, is one of Scotland's richest historical bonanzas as well as being a diversely beautiful land.
Roughly one half of its border consists of coastline ranging from the awesomely rugged to the most wonderfully beautiful. The sunsets on the Moray coastline in themselves are renowned for their beauty as many a local will testify. The land border runs through tremendous countryside, craggy mountains and desolate moors all indicating the feast of wonder and enjoyment held within. Click Here for a map.
Kingswells Park & Ride, early evening (check exact time against each date), so arrive early, fuelled up ! (the bike not you) and join the run on glorious Grampian roads, first run with us to see if you like it, then you have to join for a very small fee (even for an Aberdonian, whose every penny is a prisoner) good roads with great scenery, good company, friendly advice, from bike minded people and remember to fill up with fuel first.....we may not pass a petrol station in the wilds !
The Grampian Motorcycle Club (GMC) was formed in 2006 by former members of ADAM (the Aberdeen and District Advanced Motorcycle club) which, prior to being disbanded in 2014, was affiliated to the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM). GMC has affiliated to the BMF (British Motorcycle Federation) and has no direct link with the IAM. This club is intended to be a Social club for motorcyclist who enjoy riding with like minded people. We have runs of varying distance depending on the time of year (50 to 80 miles) every Wednesday evening during British Summer Time, these always end with a social gathering at a suitable venue.
During the weekends we have Saturday or Sunday day runs of between 150 to 400 miles. We organise around 4 weekends away annually with overnight stays in hotels, and the odd camping trip.
The club is open to all bikers, male and female, that have a full motorcycle licence. We have lady bikers, in addition partners and families are welcome to join us for the weekends away either by car or riding pillion.
Organising and running the GMC is carried out by elected committee members voted for at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at the end of the year. Most of the Committee members turn up for the Wednesday runs, so look out for them if you are new and would like to join.
Click "The Committee" link for the committee members profiles, all friendly people, just come along to the Wednesday meetings and speak to any of them for more info on the club etc....
