The Scunthorpe Motor Cycle Club is possibly one of the longest established sporting organisations in the area. Having been formed in 1923, the club was ran up until 1927 and then reformed into its present state in 1929. We still have the majority of the original silver trophies from 1923 and the club meeting minute books form that time until now! The club is affiliated with the East Midlands Centre of the Auto Cycle Union, with the motto being 'sport and fellowship' as our badge shows.
Club meetings are held on the First Tuesday of each month at 8pm, upstairs at the Cole Street Club. Anyone can come along and get involved. More information can be found HERE.
From 2019 we have done away with having to purchase membership and rolled this fee into the trials entry price (which has remained at £15). Hence, once you have ridden a trial, you automatically a member for that year.
ACU AFFILIATION CODES NOW AVAILABLE FOR 2019
Please request a club affiliation code by contacting Scott or Nikki via our Facebook page.
We are proud to say that our current membership stands at around 100, with competitors ages ranging from 4 to 70+ years old!! The lasting success of SMCC is due to the long term involvement and dedication of past and present officials and the well known camaraderie and friendship amongst the motor cycle fraternity. Long may it continue!

The minimum rider age is 4 years old.
Spectators can watch for free, just ensure main routes ridden by the bikes are clear when bikes approach.
All riders are required to have an ACU licence which can be applied for/purchased (£12) via the ACU website. To do this you will require an ACU affiliation code which can be obtained by contacting us as above.
However, there is no need to do this before your first event if you'd just like to have a go you can turn up and be issued with a day licence (£3) and decide after if you'd like to purchase an annual licence before your next trial.
If you require a ‘buddy’ rider (an experienced trials bike rider) to show you round, please mention this when handing the forms in.
The costs for the conducted route are £7.00, juniors are £10.00 or £15.00 for an adult. Prices may vary on certain occasions.
