If you’re not familiar with the Chapter community and are considering joining, it may appear a daunting prospect in the beginning, when there are so many established members.
However, fear not, I can assure you most of us shared that same feeling at first, but believe me if you make the effort to get involved, that feeling will soon be behind you, and you’ll be surprised how many new friends you’ll quickly make.
There are many events to hopefully draw you in:-
- We have two venues for monthly meeting nights which keep you informed on what’s going on. One in the Bristol area and one in South Wales, due to our spread of membership
- Normally there are two monthly rideouts, one each side of the SevernBridge, all taken by Harley trained Road Captains and experienced marshals. Along with organised trips to chosen rallies in the UK & Europe and other social activities
- Mid year we have our very own annual rally “Hogs in the Hayfields” and all members are invited to get involved both for planning and helping out over the rally weekend
All our members receive our monthly magazine “Roadhog” and we encourage members to submit their own articles, either about themselves, their bike history or an event they attended. Other information is circulated by email and of course there is the GWC website.
Obviously our aim is to have fun, but there is also a serious side. Every two to three years we select a charity to help with their fund raising. Starting in July 2016 we decided to support Freewheelers Emergency Voluntary Service, which is a Blood Bikes charity based in the South West of England.
Hope to see you soon.
