Join Us

There are several routes into membership of PECAM.

1. You can join directly through the IAM Advanced Rider course.  This includes the IAM membership for one year, your advanced test fees and one years PECAM membership during which you will complete your observed rides which will improve your riding to the advanced test standard.  As part of group membership you will also be able to attend our own skills days, our rideouts and of course our social activities.

2. Or you can contact our Membership Secretary directly for information on the other options that may be available.

3. 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.

4. For those IAM members who have already taken their tests, we can 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 the Membership Secretary for the details of how to do this.

Come along and meet us before deciding which membership route fits you best.  This could be at one of our ride assessment days which are held throughout the year, at one of our social evenings at the Talbot Inn in Stilton, or at one of our bi-monthly rideouts.  All that we ask is that if you want to give one of our rideouts a try, then you contact us in advance so that we can arrange for one of our observers to mentor you for the run.

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.  OK, there are a few BMWs, and some beards, but most members also remember to dress correctly (including their boots) before going out on their motorcycles.

Our aim as a motorcycle club is to have fun on our bikes, irrespective of what you ride.
