The North West Coast Branch is one of four branches covering the state. We cover the demographic area from Deloraine to Smithton to Queenstown. The Branch was set up in April 2002 with 32 members present and has grown steadily to over 200 since. We are blessed with some of the best motorcycling roads in the world let alone Australia and have a very temperate climate which means riding all year round with many of our rides in conjunction with neighbouring Branches.Rides
Rides are usually held every Sunday. Refer to Ride Calendar. Midweek rides are run weekly from Otto’s Grotto Bbq area car park (Dial St, Ulverstone) on a Wednesday, departing 11am.
Rides heading east of Ulverstone will depart from the BP service station at the Devonport Homemaker centre, at 10 am.
Rides heading west of Ulverstone will depart from Burnie McDonalds car park at 10 am.
Any changes to the Ride Calendar ring the appropriate Ride Captain for details or check the web site.
**PLEASE BEGIN EACH RIDE WITH A FULL TANK OF FUEL**
Gold coin collections will be taken at the beginning of each ride for our chosen charity, the ULYSSES CLUB ARTHRITIS RESEARCH FUND.
WHO CAN JOIN?
Any lady or gentleman who is over the age of 40, and who holds a current motorcycle licence, OR who is a regular partner of such a person, and over 40, is eligible to join. Until you reach the grand old of 50, you will be a “junior” member, but with full membership rights and privileges. It’s just that you might have to help some of the “seniors” off their machines sometimes.
There is a joining fee of $30.00 and a mandatory 3 year membership a total of $140. This we feel gives a considerable incentive to long-term survival.
***PLEASE NOTE*** Initial membership may be less than three (3) full years; depending on the month you join.
