Barnsley & District

Motorcycling

The Motorbike Group is open to all U3A members, male or female, with an interest in motorbikes. While there is an emphasis on riding, members who do not currently own or ride a motorbike are welcome to make contact.
Meetings are divided in a broadly seasonal manner, with summer and/or good riding days used for longer planned rides with specific purpose in mind, and winter and/or poor riding days are used for social meetings, to plan and/or review activities.

The non-riding meetings are also used to share experience and expertise, and also to look at member's projects.

We plan to ride on 1st Tuesday and 3rd Thursday of the month. Members of the group share responsibility for planning rides. Details of the ride and meeting place are circulated during the week before each ride.

Outside of the planned meetings, members maintain a message circle to enable short notice link ups for ad-hoc rides.

The purpose of our rides is to enjoy them, not to thrash about as fast as possible, and this means using less busy roads with regular stops rather than motorways.

In addition to the rides above, we have a trip planned to Scotland at the end of April. This is now fully subscribed. Its the first one we have organised, so as long as it works well there may be others to come.
