Ulysses Club Great Britain


The international social club for mature bikers

We have Ulysses Club GB members based around the country.Ulysses Club GB logo
We keep in regular contact through our active website.
We organise regular single-day ride-outs and meetings for a cuppa, fry-up or lunch throughout the year.
We arrange weekend ride-outs, sometimes as charity events, in different parts of the country.
We run a number of extended tours in the British Isles each year.
We regularly travel abroad on group rides – often to meet with our Ulysses friends from other countries’ clubs.
We meet up with visiting members from other countries – e.g. from Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, Norway, and the USA.

HOME - 1 (5)Membership is open to all those over 40 years of age who hold a current licence or can demonstrate a long standing interest in motorcycling. If you are interested in joining us in ‘Growing Old Disgracefullycheck the Membership section for further details.

Our aims are:

  • To provide ways in which older riders can get together for companionship and mutual support.
  • To show by example that motorcycling can be an enjoyable and practical activity for riders of all ages.
  • To draw the attention of public and private institutions to the needs and views of older riders.
  • To foster relations with Ulysses members internationally.

Besides our more adventurous tours and HOME - 1 (4)events there are regular opportunities for members to meet up. A couple of fixed points for lunch times are the second Wednesday of each month in the Peak District (the venue at the moment is the Yorkshire Bridge pub near Bamford) and the fourth Wednesday of each month in the South Midlands (various venues). There are also regular meetings for members in the North West. These meets are very popular and provide the opportunity to keep in touch with friends, make new ones, and plan for future exploits together. Our Gallery will give you a flavour of our activities over the last couple of years and the Rides & Events link offers a few anecdotal tales of some of our adventures both here and on the continent with our fellow Ulysseans from across the Channel. Also on that page is a table of forthcoming activities.

We look forward to hearing from you!

AGM 2017

There is a new gallery with a few pics from the 2017 AGM at Swindon. The AGM was very well attended and members were comfortably catered for at the Holiday Inn Swindon. Saturday rides included picturesque Cotswold villages and their fords, and white horses up on the Marlborough Downs. A highly successful gathering.
