Welcome to The Ulysses Club of New Zealand Inc. Canterbury Branch Web Site
The Ulysses Club of New Zealand is a social club with an emphasis on motorcycles. Membership is open to those aged over forty with an interest in motorcycles. The Canterbury branch is based in Christchurch and covers the greater Canterbury area from Kaikoura in the north, the Rangitata River in the south and inland to the Southern Alps.
Our branch holds regular meetings every third Wednesday of each month, starting at 7.30pm. It's held at the Cashmere Club Christchurch, with entrances off either Hunter Terrace or Colombo Street South. Members will often take advantage of the restaurant, enjoying a meal and a chat from 6.00pm; you're welcome to join us.
Branch rides are held most Sundays throughout the year. Day time mid-week rides, to destinations within a few hours riding, are also on offer. Everyone's welcome to join these rides. Occasionally overnight rides to venues throughout the South Island are organised. All of these rides are advertised in the Events Calendar on this site, on Facebook, and in our monthly Newsletters. There's also a new bi-monthly update with links to various rides and events - have a look at The Good Oil in our Newsletters section.
Our three major events during the year are the St John Ambulance fund raiser, held on the 25th of April every year, the 1000Km Longest Day ride in November, and our Helicopter Hunt ride (Nov 2019 - March 2020). Details for these can be found under the Events Calendar tab, as they become available.
Notices of major upcoming events are also posted on the National Web site.
If you're interested in joining the club please feel free to come to our monthly meetings, or join in our rides, and get to know us, or just call one of the Committee members.
An application form to join the club is available here or from from the branch coordinator.
