Open Road Motorcycle Touring Club

Club Events

Runs 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. A first aid and basic motorcycle repair kit is carried on all rides. For those interested in off-road, the ORATS organise an overnighter on the weekend between the other two rides.

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

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

Learners must ride with their own licenced shadow.
