Remember to choose if you want a hard copy magazine (and if you want to collect this from Riders Bridgwater) or have an e-mailed version
It’s important to send a SAE with your membership fee
Membership of Bridgwater Chapter is a very reasonable (see membership form for current prices) which is due on 1st February. A discount is available if you agree to receive your Chapter magazine by email. The email version is in full glorious colour and is normally sent out several days before the hard copies. You can be an Associate Member but you have a HOG number and be sponsored by a full HOG member.
For a sample magazine see Here (patience! its a large file and takes a while to download)
Please send all membership application forms and other membership correspondence to:
Membership Secretary, Bridgwater HOG, C/O Riders of Bridgwater, Riders House, Wylds Road, Bridgwater, Somerset TA6 4BH
It can be a bit daunting joining any new group but we pride ourselves on being welcoming to everyone. If you don’t know anybody in the Chapter, all you need do is turn up at any event, say hello to someone and ask to speak to Pete Ball or any of our New Members Representative (first on the right – picture taken some time ago!), or any member of the committee. We will introduce you to folk and make you welcome. Its as easy as that.
The best way to meet people is at one of our club nights which are always held on the first Wednesday of each month at The Admirals Landing, The Docks, Bridgwater, Somerset TA6 3EX.
Meetings normally start around 7.30pm, but folk often arrive from 7.00pm onwards.
We were all new members once and know what its like to walk into a room full of strangers. Don’t worry; we won’t be strangers for long!
The clubhouse is easy to find and the facilities are excellent. A link to directions, including a map, is here or on the Chapter calendar.
Don’t think you have to come on your bike whatever the weather. Lots of folk turn up in cars for various reasons.
Another good way of meeting people is to come on one of the rideouts listed on the Calendar, click the link at the top of this page to access that.
Throughout the year, we have ‘Natter Nights’ held once a month at various locations. Details can be found via the Chapter News on the front page or the Calendar.
We would love to see you at club nights or other Chapter events, but if you can’t make formal events, why not pop into Riders of Bridgwater on Saturdays? There is an excellent Diner and usually lots of Chapter members having a coffee and chatting, or just looking at the bikes! Just ask one of the staff to introduce you to a Chapter member.
