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:

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)

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.

Kent

Well Iím still the Kent region secretary. I would say itís my natural charisma and good leadership that keeps me in postÖ. But that would be a lie. In fact itís part of my cunning plan, and stage one, in a scheme to achieve world domination. Slow progress I grant you, but all good things come to those who wait.

In the meantime this is me. I ride bikes and donít much care what I ride. I seem to gravitate to BMWís but at least I know how to fix them. My knees seem to have called time on sporty rides, so there goes my dream of riding an RC30 up Mount Everest. Still my trusty GS1150 keeps me going in some comfort.

So thatís me, welcome to the Kent region and I hope to meet you on one of our fabled runs. Be assured it will include food, drink and chatting.


Wessex
(covering Hampshire and Dorset, Devon and Cornwall)

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)

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.
