Programme

Sunday rides: Unless indicated below, there is a WHAM ride every Sunday from our Worcester and Hereford start points. All full members are very welcome to join us, just show up half an hour before the planned departure time (9 am in summer time, 9:30 am winter time) and we’ll make sure you are allocated to a suitable riding group (we try to match pace and there is no pressure to ‘keep up’).

Our ride-outs are a chance to get together with other club members and move your riding on to the next level, there are usually experienced Observers on hand to give advice. We understand the problems that can arise from large groups and therefore limit groups to an average of 4 riders and use a system that enables everyone to ride at their own pace without being left behind. Just fancy a Sunday ride out on your own but don’t know where to go? Why not meet us at the cafe stop, approximate arrival times (and postcodes for your satnav) are posted below.

Note: Associate members please get your observer’s authority for Sunday rides other than the “First-Sunday-of-the-month”. Associate members and prospective members should make themselves known to a committee member if they wish to have an observed ride. Please see WHAM’s full ride-out policy here.

Please arrive at the start point with a full tank of fuel. _____________________________________________________________

You are deemed to be in control of your machine at all times.  Anyone taking part in our group rides is expected to comply with road traffic regulations.

Note: The routes below change from time to time as we adapt them for local road conditions, closures etc (and when we find better bends!). So, please ensure you download the route each week and don’t always rely on an older copy.

Note: For Garmin Zumo 390LM and 590LM users. Please make sure you set all of the waypoints on the route to shaping points.

To do this, double click on the route in Basecamp and right click on any waypoint that is not marked “won’t alert” and set it to “Don’t alert on arrival”. This should stop the GPS sending you round in circles if you fail to precisely cross the waypoint.

Wednesday 24th February 19:30 Natter Night February’s Club night features a talk from Ultimate Ear Protection.

Ultimate was formed as a result of a personal interest in finding good quality motorcycle ear plugs by the owner, Dave Marshall. Dave formed Ultimate in 2003 working initially in the motor sport sector.

Ultimate is a UK manufacturer, all products are manufactured in Kent in an ISO9001 production facility. With a combined 50 years of experience in the industry and an innovative design team Ultimate is acknowledged as an industry leader in the product development of custom fit hearing protection.

If you don’t wear ear-protection you should.  Wind noise on a motorcycle is far worse than most industrial noise-controlled areas.  Custom moulded plugs are far superior to disposables; they fit properly and so remain effective and comfortable.  See here for more about Ultimate’s motorcycle products.

The Guys will be taking moulds and orders on the night.

Starting at 19:30 at the Falcon in Bromyard, all members are very welcome to join us.
