we are now riding with 30 in a group as per the new Covid restrictions. As there has not been that number booked on the last 2 rides and on the next planned ones, we have stopped issuing tickets. If more than 30 turn up for a ride we will split the ride at the time in to 2 separate rides.
WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT IN A NUT SHELL
Established in April 2011 when around 170 riders and partners signed up for membership on our launch evening. We were based at Lakeside Harley-Davidson, in South Essex, right next to the Dartford Crossing, giving excellent accessibility from Essex, Kent, and London. Unfortunately the Dealership closed in September 2020, however we will continue as a H.O.G. affiliated Chapter with the full support of H.O.G. keeping our Lakeside Chapter Great Britain name.
As we are so close to the M25 we are not so far from most of the areas in and around Essex, London and Kent, so we aim to draw our membership from a wide area.
As a Chapter we look to have “Ride Outs”, every weekend in the summer and most weekends in the spring, autumn and winter. 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. 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. If you are a Lakeside Chapter member you can access our group by clicking the Facebook logo at the top right of this page.
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.
