Club Events


Rides are held each month on the weekend following the club meeting and the Sunday two weeks after that. Day runs vary in length from 100km to 600km, while overnight and long weekend tours allow the club to venture farther afield.


All runs are planned well in advance by at least two club members. Runs are led by the Run Leader, with a Tail End Charlie following the last rider to ensure a degree of safety for all who attend.


Each rider can set their own pace, whether it be a leisurely journey or some more spirited riding.

First Aid

A first aid and basic motorcycle repair kit is carried on all rides.

Off Road

For those interested in off-road, the ORATS organise an overnighter on the weekend between the other two rides.

Other Events

The club participates in a variety of other events including Charity and Awareness Rides, Rallies and inter-club challenges..


Follow the link to the club’s  Facebook group to read the fantastic journey logs/ posts  that E-J has posted every day. A lot of club members with partners and their motorcycles took part in this years event. A big effort by all hat took part and a very big thank you to the organisers.

Learner riders are not permitted to visit on Monthly Club Runs, try a couple of Social Rides first.

Learners must ride with their own licenced shadow.
