The Official Website of the
Barrel Bikers (Buckingham) Mcc

Welcome to The Barrel Bikers Webspace!!


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 approximately 60 members, all coming from in and around the Milton Keynes area. In 2009, we are celebrated our 30th birthday, 30 years old and still going strong!!!

The Club covers a whole range of motorcycle related interests, from Custom Bike Showing 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, now at our new home (Yes, another one!) 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!

We hold four major events a year and the odd benefit gig and party:
  • 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 a 500 limit, field rally with a marquee, bar, food, live bands, silly games, and all you would expect from a rally. 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 and friends.

  • 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. Click Here to see the donations we have made over the past few years.

*** Sad News ***

It's with a very heavy heart that I post this here, but I must pass on the sad news that Big Chris (Straw) or Wookie, passed away earlier this week. He went to bed with indigestion, and was found by his partner the next morning. Big Chris was a friend to many, including the Barrel Bikeres, and will be very sadly missed by all. There are no funeral details as yet, but I will post as soon as I'm told.

Our condolences, thoughts and hearts are with Chris' family & friends right now.

Ride Free Mate, we will raise a glass for you at the GPO.

We hope to see you out soon Sticks!
If not, the Club Sec will arrange for a proper shovel to be smuggled in!!

Please, if you find any broken links, typo's etc please do not hesitate to email me at Webmaster@BarrelBikers.co.uk. Also I have added a link to a file upload website (free of charge) so if you want some pictures to go on the website, or have caught some Barrel members in compromising situations, please do not hesitate to upload them to me! Visit the 'Extra Bits' page for this link.

I would also like to thank Duncan (outgoing Webmaster) for his hard work over the last two years, you can now sit back and enjoy the fruits of my learning!
