Our Next Events:
The Firkin'O' Bitter Rally
(27-Feb to 1-Mar 2015)

The BBB MCC was formed in 1979, by a small group of motorcyclists from various other Bike clubs in the Buckingham area. Now we have over 70 members, mainly coming from in and around the Milton Keynes, Northants, and Bedfordshire area, but with members as far afield as Cornwall. This year we are celebrating our 35th Birthday, 35 years old and still going strong!!!
The Club covers a whole range of motorcycle related interests, from Custom Bike’s right through to Drag Racing. Our members ride all types of machine from Learner Legal Bikes, to Streetfighters, Trikes, and Classics. All riders and machines are welcome. Really we are a Club of friends who like to ride, help each other out and party together, no matter what we ride or how long we've ridden it.
The Barrel Bikers Mcc meet every Wednesday night, at the New Inn, 2 Bradwell Road, New Bradwell, Milton Keynes, Bucks, MK13 0EN. We tend to start gathering from around 8pm until around closing time. Visitors and potential new members are always welcome to come along and meet us!
Apart from going on runs and rallies all year round, supporting and marshalling local charitable events etc. Our main activities include:
  • The Late Christmas Party, usually held in a hall with a live band, in January.
  • Firkin 'O' Bitter Rally, this is what we call a 'Trad Rally', which is a 3 day rally, with camping in a field behind a pub, with awards, silly games etc, but no live music. The Firkin is usually held on the weekend including first Saturday of March.
  • The Classic n Custom Bike & Trike Show, a single day event usually held at the beginning of August each year. We have trade stands, bar, Bouncy Castle, and all manner of Custom & Classic Trikes and Bikes. A good fun day out for all the family.
  • GPO Rally, this is our largest event we hold. It's usually a 500 limit, field rally with a marquee, bar, food, live bands, silly games, and all you would expect from a rally. This year, 2014 is the Clubs 35th Anniversary, and it's shaping up to be the biggest and best so far! We usually hold the GPO Rally on the weekend including the first Saturday in October.
  • Anniversary Parties, when we have a special date to mark, we do this in our own unique way. Sometimes we'll put on a band or two and invite all members, ex-members, nearly members etc. In 2014 we are celebrating our 35th Anniversary with a 'Drop In' BBQ. For details of this all ex members should contact our club secretary by email on, or talk to any current member.
  • Benefit Gigs, from time to time we hold benefit gigs to help our own members and ex-members or anything that effects the Barrel Bikers Mcc as a club.
  • Fund Raising, Most years we pick a charity, which usually means something special to the Club or individual members, and we raise money through raffles, collections etc. In the past we have raised funds for Tsunami Relief (we paid for a school to be re-built after the disaster), Guide Dogs, DCMR runs, Stepping Stones Special Needs Playgroup, Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance , Headway Head Injuries Charity, MS Society, MK MS Treatment Center, Guide Dogs (again), and this year we are raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
