Regular Sunday Meetings
ALL WYAM members welcome

Our new meeting venue…

As of the 21st April 2024 WYAM’s will have regular Sunday meeting at National Coal Mining Museum for England, Caphouse Colliery, New Road, Overton,
Wakefield, WF4 4RH


Starting at 9.30am for coffee, cake, lots of chat and good humoured banter. At 10am, we will ride out for observed and small group rides exploring all our favourite riding routes. So, join all your WYAM Club friends for some great rides and lots of fun.  

Why meet at The Mining Museum?

Our club membership is spread all over the West Yorkshire area and no venue is going to suit everyone. We’ve picked The Mining Museum, as it is easily accessible to all club members. It also give excellent accessibility to some great runs out and also feeds money back into the local community. From this meeting place we can split into groups of  two to six riders. If the weather is not fit for riding, or you are not able to ride then come by car (we won’t tell anyone, honest!) . It’s a good place to meet up with all the essential services we need.

Training Committee, Team Leaders, Observers, Associates and Club members 

It is very important that ALL Team Leaders, Training Committee, Observers, Associates and ordinary club members come to our Sunday meetings. We can share experiences, get more advanced riding practice and help to support the future of our club. It gives ALL club members the chance to do what we love: advanced riding, sharing our riding experiences, planning the future, putting the world to rights and having a lot of FUN!!  

See the Calendar page for details of our activities. ALL bikers are welcome to come and chat to us at our regular meet-ups. Ride safe.

All About WYAM

West Yorkshire Advanced Motorcyclists (WYAM) is an independent registered charity (no. 1071477) that provides public education and on-road guidance in advanced motorcycling skills. Our aims are to increase public awareness and understanding of motorcycling. We guide you in learning advanced riding knowledge and skills. We are an affiliate group of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM RoadSmart – Group No. 4186). We also work closely with local statutory and non-statutory organisations. We provide public information and education on advanced  motorcycling to our community. WYAM’s volunteer motorcyclists train to national standards of advanced motorcycle riding. Our  Observers are nationally qualified and insured to give on-road guidance. This prepares bikers, just like you, for either an advanced motorcycling test or a ‘Group Sign-Off’. Both courses certify that, on completion, you will be an advanced rider. We work closely with other local charitable groups. We help support local public events and road safety activities. WYAM’s provides its members with a calendar of interesting and fun social events. We provide an essential public service  that encourages, promotes and markets improved safety in the UK public roads. Also, international road safety through IAM RoadSmart.
