Established in the Summer of 2020, Surrey Hills Motorcycle Club is a relaxed club for anyone who enjoys riding motorbikes in the Surrey Hills and beyond.
Our members enjoy getting out on the open roads and twisty lanes in good company. Rather than have regular meetings, we get together whenever a few of us feel like getting out there (usually when the weather is fine!).
On this website you'll find some of the rides we are planning. At least once a year we have a fundraising event for a local charity. Keep up to date with club events by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Surrey Hills Motorcycle Club is affiliated to the British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF).
I passed my motorcycle test in 1975, first bike was a Honda CD175, today it's a Harley Davidson Night Rod 10th Anniversary. Previously it was a Yamaha MT09. I've also had bikes from Honda, Kawasaki, Aprillia, and Ducati.
My ride is a Honda CB1000R+ Neo Sports Cafe, before this it was a BMW K1200S. I've also owned a Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and a Fantic. I learnt to ride aged 14 on a blue Honda CD175 in the lanes and fields of Somerset.
A Triumph Bonneville T100 is my first motorcycle - if you don't include the Vespas. When I took my test, the person at reception asked: "Mid-life crisis, or your Mum wouldn't let you have one when you were a kid?"
The most wooded county in Great Britain, Surrey is noted for its beautiful countryside. The Surrey Hills became a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1958.
Covering 163 sq miles (approximately one quarter of the county) the Surrey Hills AONB includes some great riding roads and lanes. Fast, scenic routes cross open countryside and sunken twisty lanes connect gorgeous historic villages with brilliant pubs, welcoming tea shops and biker friendly cafes, and hills with great views.
One of the Surrey Hills' highest points is Box Hill - named after the Box trees that grow on its slopes - which has the oldest untouched area of woodland in the UK and one of the oldest in Europe. The distinctive diamond shaped box leaf was the inspiration for the shape of the Surrey Hills MC logo.
Riding motorbikes in the Surrey Hills is great fun, doing it with a motorcycle club as a shared experience makes it even better. And as most of our members are local, they know some great routes.
As well as our impromptu rides. we are planning some ride-outs in the Surrey Hills and further afield. Please let us know if there are any that you would particularly like to be part of. To be kept up to date on all our ride-outs and events please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
The Surrey Hills Motorcycle Club observes the Coalition of Motorcycling Organisations COVID-19 Riding Guidelines for motorcyclists.
SHMC members are united by freedom and a love of the Surrey Hills. We welcome all types of people, meeting infrequently in the Surrey Hills AONB and mostly when the weather is dry.
The annual membership fee is £25.00 and includes British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF) affiliation.
