Group Meetings

The LAM is an actively social group. Although an associate will be paired with an Observer, all members are encouraged to attend the regualar group meetings.

Saturday Meetings

There are bi-weekly saturday meetings, on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month. These are group runs which give associates an opportunity to be paired up, for the day, with a different observer. This will allow the associate to get a different view on the riding and progress. Doing this will also help the associate get used to having different riders behind them - hopefully this will also help on test day.

We meet at McDonald's, Sprucefield Shopping Center  at 9:00am and aim to be on the road 9:30. If you are in the area feel free to pop along and have a chat, find out what we're about. You will find we are a friendly bunch, our passion is biking.

Thursday Meetings

There is a monthly meeting on a Thursday evening on every 1st Thursday in the month. This meeting typically involves a short observed run, or skills session, followed by a gathering where any group issues can be discussed. Once a quarter the Thursday meeting will be used to hold a more formal meeting where guest speakers will be invited to talk about road safety issues. the venue for Thursday meetings is the Masonic Hall on the Belsize road.

New members are advised to get in touch with our coordinator before coming to a group session. This affords the group the opportunity to ensure there are adequate observers on hand to cope for demand.

End Of Month Ride Out

We are also an active social group with Monthly ride outs, usually the last Sunday in the month when we meet up and go were the open roads call.   We also have weekend getaways.   We like to have fun !!!!

See the contact page to find out how to get in touch.



Sadly the LAM are unable to accomodate either learner riders, or rider's on restriction (R Plates).

L plate riders should continue their instruction and pass the normal riding test. We would encourage all new riders to get in touch about advanced riding once they have passed their test.

Due to the speed restriction on 'R' plate riders, the LAM would be severly restricted in what it could offer these riders. We would encourage you to practice your riding skills gaining confidence in both machine control and your own ability. As you approach your first anniversary we would encourage you to get in touch so that we can start the process of helping you develop your skills without further delay.
