Moorlanders MCC's roots lie in a trio of biker friends who, in 1997,
had the good idea of organising an Egg Run one Easter Sunday, collecting
donations to local children's charities and taking chocolate eggs to them.
The run proved popular, and became an annual event, at which point it was
necessary to get public liability insurance - hence the need to form the Club
We have members mainly based on or around the fringes of
the Moor (from Cardinham, round to St Breward, Camelford and from the larger
towns of Bodmin, Bude and Launceston) and from further afield (Torpoint &
|Forward to the present, and you have a diverse group of
merry souls, some who are lifelong, everyday riders, some who are back on 2
wheels after a long break and others who are new to motorcycling.
All share a
love of safe riding, and enjoying each other's company and the excellent rides
we can have locally.
Our members range in age from teens to those approaching their 70s.
in the Club are equally across the range - tourers, trikes, sidecar outfits,
mile-munchers, etc. All our rideouts are designed with the comfort, safety and
enjoyment of all riders. We ride to the slowest rider.
We all work together to organise an Egg Run every Easter
Sunday, raising money, selling raffle tickets, marshalling - to what ever extend
our lives permit. We're proud that this year we've raised £5,000 to for our chosen charities - Action for Children, Children's Hospice South West, and the ARB Learning Support Units at Camelford & Launceston primary
For existing members, subs for 2017
(1st January till end of December) will be £15 for Full Membership, £25 for Family Membership (which is for a household with children under 16).
Moorlanders MCC club members are automatically associate members
of BMF, and qualify for a discount on insurance at many
brokers. As a club, we also have a discount for members at Opie
Oils, down Redruth way.
Individual joining membership will be £20.
We're a realistic club, and understand that work, family
and health commitments come first, but there's get-togethers twice a
month throughout the year, and in the main season, we head off to local events
and aim to organise rideouts for most weekends.
In winter months, we accept
that 4 wheels are often more practical, and continue to meet for more social
gatherings, such as our Bowling Night, Dodgems Do and Christmas
