The British Motorcyclists Federation is one of the largest motorcycling groups of its kind in the world. United by a love of motorcycling, we represent our members by safeguarding your rights on and off the road.

Club affiliation
You and your club members benefit from becoming a BMF affiliated club.

  • You get representation at a government level
  • Have your say at our meetings and influence the governance of the BMF.
  • Special public liability insurance package
  • Club members enjoy many of the advantages offered to individual BMF members.
  • Monthly e-newsletter sent to your club, keeping you up to date with all important issues.

Clubs are broken into two areas: local clubs and national (and one make) clubs.

National and One-Make Forum
National and One-Make Clubs (NOMC) can send representatives to these meetings which take place at regular intervals throughout the year. Through this forum, they can raise concerns which they have at both national and local levels and obtain assistance from other clubs and/or the BMF in dealing with them.

Keep in the know
Clubs receive, dependent on their size, a set number of subscriptions to the BMF magazine Motorcycle Rider which are mailed to members nominated by the club. You will also receive regular information and BMF press releases. You also will receive a list of hints and tips on organising ride-outs – a benefit that’s exclusive to BMF clubs.
