CWAM Social Activities

Rideouts

Rideouts are CWAM’s opportunity to hit the open road and come in all shapes and sizes from a local run of a couple of hours to all day tours further afield. There is enough information on the Events Diary for you to decide if the run is for you although more information can be obtained from Trevor Smith. Run Leaders ensure convenient interim stops for petrol and a breather to supplement a longer stay at the day's destination. 

Ride outs offer associates an opportunity to improve their confidence as they see the more experienced riders in action. Most just go along for the fun of it but they may choose to pair up with an observer and treat some or all of the trip as an observed ride.  For full members, there're a good excuse to eat up the miles with their mates. Whether a full or associate member, as with all CWAM group activities, they are above all, an occasion for socialising and enjoying yourself.

Format of run 

Riders need to arrive with a full fuel tank of fuel in time for the briefing which takes place 10 minutes before the off. Unless advertised as a GBH (Green Badge Holder) run, all rides are deemed suitable for Associates of any standard but please let the run leader know if you are short on group riding experience. IAM RoadSmart state that a legal helmet with suitable eye protection, motorcycle clothing, gloves and footwear that offer impact protection must be worn when riding.

Further Information

Paul Lewis has compiled three sets of comprehensive notes for those going on CWAM Social Rides. Simply click on the links.

Please contact Trevor Smith if you would like to lead a rideout or have any questions.

 

Social Nights

Generally held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, CWAM Club Social Nights are very popular and a full house is often the norm. They enable the group to meet socially in the very comfortable surroundings of the Jaguar Social Club and are an opportunity to talk bikes and gain a bit of bike related knowledge from our guest speakers. Our Social Nights are totally inclusive and friends and family are always welcome. A regular speaker is Jim Sampson, our resident police advisor but the variety on offer over the years has been impressive, just take a look at the list below. Our guest speakers, whose expertise offers a fascinating insight into topics we, as bikers are interested in, give their time and enthusiasm freely. Please come along and support them
