There are several routes into membership of PECAM:
- You can join directly through the IAM Roadsmart Advanced Rider course. This includes the IAM membership for one year, your advanced test fees and one year of PECAM membership. This is often enough time for you to complete your observed rides, which will improve your riding to the advanced test standard. Extension for a second year is available if you need it. As part of group membership you will also be able to attend our own skills days, our ride outs and of course our social activities;
- Or you can contact us for information on other options that may be available;
- For those who would like to give advanced motorcycling a try, but without committing to the Advanced Rider course, then we offer membership as a “Friend” of PECAM. This class of membership costs £17.50 per year, and allows you to take part in most of our activities, including our own skills days, our rideouts and our social activities. For those Friends who subsequently purchase the IAM Advanced Rider course within the first six months of joining PECAM (and many do so), we will refund their Friend membership fee;
- For those IAM members who have already taken their tests, we welcome you as full members. Advanced test pass holders must still be members of the IAM in order to join PECAM, and PECAM membership is £17.50 per year, contact us for the details of how to do this.
We believe that you will be pleasantly surprised by the ethos of the club, and also by the lack of pipes, beards, slippers and BMWs. Okay, there are a few BMWs and some beards amongst us, but we remember to dress correctly in our riding gear (including boots) before going out on our motorcycles.
Our aim, as a motorcycle club, is to have fun on our bikes, irrespective of what you ride.
