How we organise ourselves

The FCM has members throughout the whole country and so for practicality we have divided ourselves up into Regions. If you would like to know more about who we are and what we're doing, drop us an email by clicking on the Regional Secretaries name.

Currently we have six active regions:

(covering the Chilterns and the Costwolds)
Members 2018:

Jon Field
I am Jon Field and I am the Chiltern Regional Secretary....a very grand title for someone who sat in a pub at the start of the year with some people who, thanks to the FCM, have become good friends. We arranged some runs for this year, the first of which was very successful at time of speaking and I hope to welcome a few new people to the remainder of the year's runs.

East Anglia
(covering the East coast through Anglia)
Members 2018:

Dereck Hamling
From East London and Essex, through Suffolk, all the way up to Norfolk - that's the East Anglia Region. If you live here, or are just joining us for the day, contact me and join us for a run.

(covering South London and Sussex)
Members 2018:

Jo Anthony

I've stepped in as secretary for the Kent Region, which is another excuse for going out for a ride.

I have been a member of the FCM since the last Millennium and have ridden a wide variety of machines during that time. Now my eldest son is old enough to ride pillion with me on a run - a great way of bonding. Just a short while before he will want his own bike!

(covering Hampshire and Dorset, Devon and Cornwall)
Members 2018:

Nicky Partridge
Although our region spreads a long way across the country, and just re-merged with the Westcountry Region (people will move houses), there's plenty of roads for you to join us on. So get in touch and meet us the next time we're out.

West Mercia
(covering Shropshire and North Wales)
Members 2018:

Mike Simpson
With half our members on the Welsh coast, and the other half on the opposite border of the region, we try to arrange runs on an east / west split, so something is probably happening near you at some point. I'm in my sixties and have been riding on and off since I was 16 and am currently riding a Triumph Tiger 800. We've made trips across to France a couple of years ago and may do so again, so why not come and join us on a run through the beautiful Welsh (and English) countryside and even beyond.?

West Wales
(covering South Wales)
Members 2018:

Andy Brown
We're a new region, having declared independence from our friends in West Mercia Region. We're still planning what we're doing this year so get in touch if you're in West or South Wales and find out what we have planned.
Region Secretary Description Map

Other members are grouped into a National Region (or is that International??) until four "local" members get together and elect a Regional Secretary - then a new Region is born!

Each Region tries to organise a run (visit) to somewhere each month, with neighbouring Regions trying to avoid the same weekend each month. All Regions welcome members from other Regions to join in the fun. All regions will try to organise their runs at opposite ends of their "patch", so that everyone can easily get to the meeting point for at least some of their runs.

And on top of all that, there are National Events organised, like the Annual Camp and organising stands at Shows.

So there's a very good chance that we have members living near you - and a chance to join in a run on most weekends becomes possible.
