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.

|Friday 3rd||All Day||Ride n Slide Dayz. Ever wondered what it would be like to take a 500cc racing Speedway bike from rest to 60 mph in under 3 seconds and corner sideways on a loose surface with full opposite lock?If this is something you just can’t live without WHAM has just the event for you! In conjunction with Ride n Slide you can enjoy the complete package with expert instruction, the bikes and all safety kit provided at Coventry Bees Stadium on Friday 3rd October.It is a full day event starting with the Motorsport sign-on procedure at 0930, after being kitted out there is a full safety briefing, an introduction to the bikes and the track and then, the fun bit, the first opportunity to try your skill on a 125 or 350cc bike: this is about learning to control the throttle, getting used to the speed and left-turns-only circuit and finally getting sideways!In the afternoon an opportunity to move up to a full-house 500cc bike for those of stout disposition and a little more about riding lines, the racing start, riding alongside others and sliding all through the bends. The day will finish up with a debrief at 15:30 including some presentations and a late lunch.The cost for the all-inclusive day is £202.50 per rider, there are 20 places available. If you would be interested in the spectacle of certain WHAM members making a fool of themselves spectators are welcome.If this is for you contact Derek McMullan on 07791 102218 to reserve you place.|
