BAM runs a number of tours for full members

The tour schedule is usually published around October / November for the following year, and new tours may be added through the year.  They are usually one or two nights away, though some are longer.

Regular destinations include Wales, the South West of England, the North and Scotland. Other occasional tours take in France and Spain. All tours include carefully researched and planned routes on some of the best roads around. Tours are organised and led by volunteer members, and include stays in excellent accommodation.

Tours are open to all full members of BAM, pillion passengers are welcome (passengers do not need to be BAM members). To find out more about a tour and to reserve your place, contact the Tour Organiser or the Tour Co-ordinator. Most of these tours have been running for a number of years and are very popular, please note that they can get booked up very quickly.
