The Ulysses Club of New Zealand

The Ulysses Club of NZ Inc. for older motorcyclists, one of the largest organizations of its kind in New Zealand, is now a familiar part of this country's riding scene. All of our branches hold regular rides and social get togethers, for more information on events in your region go to the Branches page and either click on the link to your local branch website, or email or telephone the branch contact for more information. Usually they will be able to provide you with a runs list so you can go along. You will find we are a friendly bunch and while we are a club for motorcyclists over 40, the emphasis is more on the social side of motorcycling. Spouses and partners are encouraged to take part in our events.

Far North branch Mid Winter lunch

The weather wasn’t looking promising-some showers and then some sunny patches so Nick and I went “we will,”  “we won’t,” “we will,”  “we won’t,” go on the bike. When the time to go came around, the day looked settled so it was on with the gear and off to Burger King.
Des handed out a map for a 100Km jaunt so a few hardy riders with a tin top as tail end Charlie set off.  The bikers arrived at 12pm to find a few bikes and more tin tops lined up. There was a lot of laughing and talking going on from the already assembled group.  About 45 ‘old’ and ‘younger Ulyssians enjoyed a great Mid
Winter feast of venison, lamb, ham, sausages, coleslaw, potato and rolls
followed by delicious cheese cake, fruit and ice cream.

Thanks Des and Val for organising and hosting this Mid Winter lunch.

It felt like ‘old times’- good company, lots of chatter, laughs and a most enjoyable meal. A great get -together in the true spirit of the Ulysses Family.
May this be the 1st of many more.

Nick and Anne Grbin

2015 Welington St John fundraising ride

2015 Rotorua branch fundraising ride for Dementia support

Leading a motorcycle rally from Auckland through the Bay of Plenty and finishing in Taupo, Rotorua Ulysses members caught up with Eddie Dawkins and Anthony Peden at Hells Gate and rode in to Rotorua with the pair on their sponsored Harley Davidsons. The photo was taken at a public event, at “The Hub” behind Queen Elizabeth Health, Whakaue St, Rotorua.

The photo is of 19 Rotorua Ulysses Branch members who joined World Champion and Commonwealth Games medal winning cyclist Eddie Dawkins, and his coach and Halberg Coach of the Year, Anthony Peden, on Saturday 21 March 2015. Eddie and Anthony took two days out of their busy schedules to support Alzheimers NZ raising awareness of dementia.

Eddie is lending his support to Alzheimers NZ, in recognition of his family connection to dementia. Eddie’s grandfather passed away from dementia, and his grandmother is also now affected by the condition. It is estimated around 53,000 New Zealanders have dementia, a number forecast to triple to around 150,000 by 2050 as the population ages!!!

The two-day rally attracted significant media interest and was well supported by local motorcycle clubs along the way.
