The BATH CLASSIC MOTOR CYCLE CLUB was founded in 1987 by a handful of motorcycle enthusiasts keen to rekindle interest in British bikes in and around the Bath area. Since then the club has catered for a variety of classic bike interests.

Two or three of the original founders had been taking part in Pre-65 scrambles, which at that time were often classic demonstrations at modern motocross meetings. However they could see the need for a club to specifically promote British bike scrambles and so Bath Classic Motor Cycle Club was born. Trials and road runs followed as a natural progression.

The club has on average 200 members with weekly meetings around the Bath area and we organise a variety of road runs, trials and a scramble to cater for everyone’s needs.

Why not come along and join us – scroll down for more details below and also see the meetings and events page.

The Club is affiliated to the AMCA and MAG. Over the years we have also raised many thousands of pounds in support of charities.


The Club stages a scramble in April each year catering for Pre-60, Pre-65 and Pre-74 machines, with an average entry of 60-90 riders of all ages and abilities. It also generally hosts a Round of the Classic British Championship.  For details of dates & venues see the scrambles page.


We run a number of trials each year with entries averaging 50/70 riders. We have six classes (Rigid, Pre-Unit/Twins, Unit, Twinshock, Air Cooled Mono and Modern Mono (riders over 50 years old) and four routes (Expert, Clubman/Expert, Clubman & Gentlemans) so that all rider/machine abilities are catered for. For details of dates & venues see trials page.

Road Runs

The Road Runs section is very sociable and although we prefer if you ride a classic of some sort we don’t mind – many of us have modern bikes too.
Runs are organised to suit all and any with restrictions on age or cc clearly flagged.


A Club Stand can be found at a selection of events. Members are encouraged to display their bikes, with the stand acting as a focal point for all club members.


Club membership generally averages about 200 members and runs from January 1 to December 31, It only costs £10. Newsletters are published during the year and we try to keep the website and the Members only Facebook page up to date.
