We have been keeping our eye on the Government guidelines and trying to determine what is best for the Chapter as a whole. We should all remember that this virus is still with us and unless we follow guidelines it could start to peak at any time. There is an expectation that a second wave will hit before the winter.
It is frustrating that we have not been able to get out to ride as a Chapter and it is looking like this may continue for some time. So, a decision has been taken to trial some rideouts of groups of six only, to see how it will work and the response we get from the Chapter, to see if there is a requirement for reduced number rides.
Established in April 2011 when around 170 riders and partners signed up for membership on our launch evening. We are based at Lakeside, in South Essex, right next to the Dartford Crossing, giving excellent accessibility from Essex, Kent, and London. As we are so close to the M25 we are not so far from most of the areas in and around London so we aim to draw our membership from a wide area. As a Chapter we have travelled far and wide from the top and tail of the UK, into Europe, also the USA. Our calendar page shows all the ride-outs, rallies, events and meetings.
We have a closed Facebook group that you can access by clicking the Facebook logo at the top right of the page. To access this you need to be a Chapter member, which of course means you need to be a H.O.G. member. You’ll need a Harley to do that of course, so if you haven’t yet got one of those don’t miss out on the best ride of your life and check out the deals at LAKESIDE HARLEY-DAVIDSON.

MORE ABOUT CHAPTERS
What does a H.O.G.® Chapter do?
Chapter members share a passion for riding, and a lot of what they do supports those interests. Riding events vary from group rides, safety courses, competitions, rallies, National H.O.G.® rides, and weekend riding trips. While riding is the main emphasis, many groups get together to raise funds for charitable causes, attend events, and more. The limitations are endless, as YOU may bring forward the next new activity idea.
