Bath Classic Motorcycle Club meets on a regular basis at a variety of hostelries around the Bath area for a sociable chat, a glass of Vimto and a sandwich, while comparing the amount of dirt or not playing 'spot the incorrect washer' on our classic steeds.

Occasional guest speakers come along.  Details of our regular meets are below and our outings and events below that;
