Latest recruit to the burgeoning National Motorcyclists Council is the Vintage Motor Cycle Club. With 13,500 members, 81 regional sections and five specialist sections around the UK, the VMCC organises more than 1200 events annually and is at the forefront of the UK’s £18bn heritage motorcycle sector representing about 675,000 historic machines.

Through its Regulatory Advisory Group, the VMCC monitors legislative and other developments which might threaten the ability of riders to go on using and enjoying older machines, working together with other rider and heritage organisations to secure a safe and sustainable future for vintage and classic motorcycling.

Welcoming the VMCC, NMC chief executive Craig Carey-Clinch said: “Its NMC membership will significantly strengthen work to protect heritage motorcycling and highlight its contribution to society, the economy and sport. With decarbonisation high on the government’s agenda, it is vital that the voice of heritage motorcycling is further reinforced, particularly in the areas of evolving fuel technology and the continuing availability of fuels. Joint working on these matters is essential when it comes to presenting a strong and combined voice.”

National Motorcyclists Council members now include the Auto Cycle Union, the British Motorcyclists Federation, IAM RoadSmart, Plantec Assist, the National Motorcycle Dealers Association, the Trail Riders Fellowship and the Vintage Motor Cycle Club.
