We arrange all sorts of events during the year. These range from riding events (always a favourite!) to social events, charity events and seasonal events.
We tend to run three types of events – closed, open and member. These are identified as follows:
- Closed: events that are open to Geordie Chapter members and one guest per member
- Open: events that are open to Geordie Chapter members, H.O.G. members and other guests, as appropriate
- Member: events that are open to H.O.G. members
Just click Events Calendar from the drop-down menu above and you’ll see a calendar of everything that’s available. Or you can select each type of event individually.
We have separate pages on our website for details of our Chapter meetings, Chapter rides and social events and charity events. Have a click through the pages and you’ll get an idea for the types of things that we do.
Our official rides (meaning ones that our Road Crew has organised and will marshall) usually happen a couple of times a month, from May until October.
Throughout the riding season, someone from our Road Crew will lead a ride out on a Wednesday evening, weather permitting. These are very popular informal rides and allow people who can’t make our weekend rides to get involved. These usually last for about two to three hours, depending on the time of year. The destinations and routes are always different and they tend to take advantage of quieter roads.
Coupled with this, we also attend lots of local events. These could be in our region or supporting our local Chapters when they are hosting their own events. This could include town fairs, parades, Harley-Davidson dealer events, promotions or other publicised outings. Everything will be listed on our Events Calendar once we know about it and if people are likely to attend.
Members of the Geordie Chapter have access to our closed Facebook group which provides the very latest information relating to routes or weather conditions. We also send out event details by email, as appropriate, and members have access to our quarterly newsletter, The Sprocket.
If you would like to contribute to an event or have any questions relating to an event, please contact our Activities Officers.
Harley-Davidson also has an events page. You can find it here. There’s lots of information about events and there’s a great events calendar too.
There’s also information about global H.O.G. rallies here.
Geordie Chapter is sponsored by our local Harley-Davidson dealer – Gateshead Harley-Davidson, based in Dunston. They are incredibly supportive of what we do, and usually have some sort of event once a month to keep us all entertained. Seasonal favourites include events for July Fourth, Harleyween and their own Birthday Bash!
