History of the Club

From 1963 to the present day…

The Warrington Motorcycle Club was founded in 1963, beginning life with twenty or so members who met in Appleton Thorn Village Hall.

The mid seventies saw the club move to Martinscroft Mission Hall and membership grew to over 80.

By the end of the seventies membership had grown to 130 and the club again relocated this time to Orford Community Centre, where it remained until the mid 1980s when the club moved first to Grappenhall and then to the Black Bear Pub in Latchford.

The nineties brought a new interest to young and old into biking. Membership to WMCC once again started to grow so in 1995 the club moved to Winwick Hospital Social club now Hollins Park Sport & Social Club.

In 2010 we relocated the Club to The Hermit Pub and later moved to Rylands Recreation Club, and our current home is Pierpoint & Bryant Recreation Club.

WMCC is one of the oldest affiliated clubs to the BMF with a fifty year history. During this time the club has won many Best of Club cups for their stand at the BMF show Peterborough. If you visit the show in May or September you will meet us on the Bike Park as we always have a large presence marshalling at the show.

More than fifty years on from when we first formed the club, members still enjoy meeting every Friday where we plan regular Club ride outs, camps, and rallying. We support other bike clubs, attending their rallies and social events and we occasionally venture further afield on bike tours around Europe. You may also see some of our members marshalling at motorcycle races.
