As the title ‘British Motorcycle club of Tasmania’ suggests, we appreciate and predominantly run British bikes. This doesn’t mean you HAVE to ride one to join. A mere appreciation is all you need to join in the fun and friendship that comes from being a member of Tasmania’s premier motorcycling club. We welcome anyone with a passion for Brit Iron. You don’t have to be British either.
There’s a wide range of Brit bikes, and others, represented at any run. Old and new, sports, cruiser, café racer, vintage, to name a few.
BMCT is officially* the most knowledgeable club in the world concerning motorcycling with an incredible brains trust of curmudgeonly road warriors to keep you on two wheels. If you have a question about motorcycles there’s someone here who knows the answer. (*not at all official)

For those in the North we hold a social gathering on the second Wednesday of the month at
The Cock’n’Bull British Pub
50 Wellington St, Launceston
Commencing at 6:30PM.
We usually have fortnightly rides for members and guests. Some are short, others longer. But a good time is had by all.
We have regular club rides, plus ‘slow bike rides’ (coaxing older bikes out and a ‘stick together’ mentality), ‘Better Halves’ rides (Bring the missus, girlfriend or both if you’re brave. Or one of the kids as pillion) charity rides, overnighters, and twilight rides. Come on all of them or just the ones that take your fancy. We’ll usually find ourselves zipping along picturesque roads then enjoying coffee, food and good conversation in the many towns and cities of one of the best places in the world to enjoy motorcycling.
(This of course is Tasmania and occasionally inclement weather means a ride will sadly get cancelled)

British Biker Magazine
OUR AWARD WINNING* MAGAZINE
(*HAS WON NO AWARDS)
The British Biker is the quarterly publication for our members, by our members. Full of tech tips, photos, tall tales and ales. There’s many a chuckle to be had reading the stories and ride reports in this publication. To be honest we should publish it. But we won’t. You’ll have to become a member to read this excellent record of our adventures.
Now including contributions from the Veteran Motorcycle Club of Tasmania. That’s even more motorcycle scallywaggery!
