056 - Vancouver

CMC National

The 056 Vancouver

Welcome to the web site of Chapter 056 of the Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers. We are a family oriented group of motorcycle enthusiasts. Our emphasis is on safe group riding and friendship. We don't care what make or model of motorcycle you ride, as long as you ride. It costs nothing to join us, and there are no dues.

Our rules are simple:

* Don't drink and ride.  Always ride safely.  Always be nice to each other.*

For club by-laws and guidelines please visit the CMC National home page.

Our chapter holds mid-week Meet & Greets where we get together over coffee and get to know each other, plan rides, and do short group rides if desired. We do our longer, planned rides on the weekends.

Come on out and get to know us, and let us get to know you. You will find we are a very friendly group of people who share a common interest in motorcycles and riding. As stated in the Bylaws, you are not required to own a bike, several of our members are passengers. It does not matter what kind of bike you ride or are interested in, all are welcome.

Special Up Coming Rides And Events!

Nothing planned from here on till the end of the year but come on out to one of the regulare meets. They go on year round. Even with most of us having our bikes parked for the winter, its still nice to get together over a coffee and chat about rides past, present and future.

Riding safety is foremost and paramount for the Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers, and for our 056 Vancouver Chapter. Our Group Riding Hand Signals, and Road Captain Training basics are 'must' information for anyone who rides with us. Please follow these links and download the PDF's. We hold regular training seminars in order to get and keep everyone on the same page and make our rides safe and enjoyable.
