Join the club
The Classic Motorcycle Club, Western Cape, is a friendly bunch of classic motorcycle enthusiasts keen on the preservation, restoration, maintenance and most importantly the riding of classic bikes.
Club members come from all walks of life and are of all ages. The club is also family-orientated and spouses and pets are more than welcome too. The club is especially keen for younger members to get involved in the world of classic motorbikes and bikes in the club range from veteran and vintage through to the classics, including British, Continental and the “fantastic plastic” East.
New members and visitors are most welcome to come along and join in at any time. Even if you don’t ride yet or you ride a modern bike you’re very welcome. To get in touch with the club directly please click here
We hold our monthly meetings on the last Saturday of each month (excluding December), starting at 1.00 pm with a social get together to admire and talk about our bikes over a beer (or cooldrink) and braai (or barbeque) with the formal meeting starting at 3 pm and taking an hour or so. At his meeting we have a presentation or workshop on our favorite topic, bikes and biking.
The club tries to ride every Sunday … if the weather good and the wife is grumpy on a Sunday morning – why not pop along to Constantia Village at 8 -30 AM and see who else has had the same thought… We usually meet in the car park next to the Engen garage.
The club also does a formal monthly run which takes place on the first Sunday of every month, starting Constantia Village 8-15 (leaving 8-30 latest) with a pick-up point for Northern Suburbs rides dependent on the routing (keep an eye on this site and the Facebook page for the route and meetup points). The club supports and joins most biking events in the Western Cape including the Century Run (combined age of bike and rider 100 years of more) and the numerous rallies that take place as well as the annual Classic Bike and Car show.
The Classic Motorcycle Club also does an annual ride on some of the best roads within Cape Town – the Cape Classic Ride, for more information about this trip please click here

What is a classic Bike?
This depends on who you ask, but the ‘official’ definition is any motorcycle which is 20 or more years old. Most of us concur that a classic bike is a bike that has ‘stood the test of time’ meaning that there is a qualitative aspect as well. In the end, if you think it’s a classic motorbike then it is one as far as we’re concerned. There is always lots of banter within the club about old British bikes vs Japanese motorbikes and old German ones, as well as modern, chopped cafe-racers and everything in between.
Do I have to own a bike to join the CMCC?
No you do not have to own a classic (or any motorcycle) to join. You just need to share our passion for classic motorbikes.
