What do we do for you?
We represent Riders locally, nationally and internationally, safeguarding motorcycle riders' rights. We promote motorcycling and the interests of motorcyclists.
Some issues include:
- Road safety
- Crash barriers
- Exhaust Labelling
- CTP Insurance
How does the MCC work?
The MCC is run along democratic lines. Member clubs raise
issues from their own meetings via their delegates. These items are placed on the agenda of the MCC. The decision on whether an issue will be taken up or not is determined by a vote of the delegates.
First Monday of each month at 7:30pm
Normally, first Monday of the month, but not on a Public Holiday Monday, so it moves forward to the second Monday.
There is no meeting in January.
Meetings are conducted at Ryde Ex-Services Club (Bowling clubrooms)
724 Victoria Rd, Ryde, NSW 2112
(entrance via Eagle Street)
The MCC cordially extends an invitation to any rider who wishes to attend these meetings.
Come earlier to enjoy a meal, a drink & excellent company.
How are issues advanced?
After members vote to pursue an objective, club representatives work together on developing a solution. Unaligned riders may assist with this process, but member groups are kept informed of progress at all times.
How do you get involved?
MCC affiliation is open to all clubs, associations and ride groups. Membership is also open to individuals.
Each affiliated club has two delegate seats on the MCC. Both delegates have a vote at meetings and access to the Delegates' email list. Membership for clubs is free. Come and take your seat!
Although not entitled to vote on issues, Individuals who are not delegates and whether club members or not can join as Supporters. There are many benefits for Supporters. See the Supporters Page.
If you'd like your club to be part of the MCC, contact our Club Liaison Officer. More information: is here.
Motorcyclists' needs, as vulnerable road users, are rarely considered by those who draft legislation, change regulations or implement road safety.
It is important we establish a voice to maintain and improve legislation, regulations and campaigns, to protect motorcyclists and their interests.
United we ride, divided we walk.
