Welcome to the home of The Motor Cycling Club

Founded in 1901, we're Britain’s oldest sporting motor club for motorcycles and cars

Founded in 1901, the Motor Cycling Club is one of the very oldest clubs for the sporting motorist. We have over 1000 loyal and enthusiastic members who enjoy our own particular style of motor sport on two, three, or four wheels. 

We are known mainly for our three great long distance classic reliability trials; the Exeter Trial (held in early January), the Lands End Trial (held at Easter), and the Edinburgh Trial (held in early October). These have all been run since the first decade of the last century with the essential character unchanged and entries still numbered in the hundreds.

There will be a New MCC Event for 2021, although it sounds a long way off these things have a habit of catching up with us very quickly:

120th Anniversary Event. Proposed format is:

3 days
250 miles/day
Summer time
Social event before and after
One night stage
Loop not point to point
As it's a celebration of MCC events the plan is to go in and out of the SW but not as far as Blue Hills, and as far north as Derbyshire,

The 250 miles is in deference to older machines and avoiding main roads.

Mid week is to avoid busy weekend roads, Tuesday to Thursday to avoid busy weekend commuter days, and both to allow getting a hotel. Loop course to avoid further days driving to Land's End/John O' Groats. Starting point TBD - but how about Meriden?

We will be asking for volunteers to help noting that we have to prioritise the big three.

Some good news as everyone has an opinion on tyres!

Please note the tyres permitted for motorcycle class C will now also be allowed for motorcycle classes A, B and D.

This is primarily to cater for class B machines with 17 inch rear wheels.

There will be a formal update to the text in next year’s SSRs.

If you have any questions or points on motorcycle tyres please email: motorcycletyres@themotorcyclingclub.org.uk.
