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.
