Information for CMA Bristol

Welcome

The Bristol branch covers some of the south west of England, with the exception of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, with particular emphasis on Bristol, Wiltshire, plus a little of South Gloucestershire and Dorset. We also have the occasional adventure in Wales.

We meet every month, on the Fourth Monday evening at St Peter's, Lawrence Weston, from 7.30 p.m. and once again in the month to pray(contact branch prayer coordinator for details of date, time and place). We have occasional rideouts and we are just beginning to start church runs and attending rallies & Bike Nights(Weston and Cotswold) as covid restrictions lift. We continue to support each other and our local motorcycling community in what ever way we can.

The Branch Secretary is Anne Egan.  She may be contacted by email on CMA Bristol Secretary
