    Ulysses Motto: Grow Old Disgracefully

    About the Perth Branch, Ulysses Club Inc.

    The Ulysses Club Inc. is first and foremost a Social Club, for people with an interest in motorcycles.

    The club offers the opportunities for over-forty-year-old women and men to get out there and show the world that we still have what it takes to enjoy the excitement that awaits every skilled rider and would be rider.

    We show that we aren't ready to lay back and watch the weeds grow and then look back and wonder "could I have done better".

    No, for us it is the open road and the friendship that comes with the great companionship of many others who wish to enjoy the biking way of life.

    We have a social gathering - meeting at the Carlisle Hotel, 174 Rutland Avenue, Carlisle, on the last Wednesday of each month at 8:00pm (no meeting held in December).  Lots of members come early at around 6:30pm, for a meal and a chat first.

    We organise rides from a designated starting point in East Perth. Check out the Ride Calendar for more details. Rides can vary from 100km to 300km, or even more. Some rides will also include an activity and some are for overnight or a weekend. All rides are planned in advance, routes are marked and everybody is guaranteed a warm welcome.

    We meet for coffee and a chat every Saturday afternoon at 4:00pm, at Dome Coffee Shop, 293 Albany Hwy (corner of McMaster) (Map).

    We promote safe motor cycling and increase awareness of other road users for the safety of motor cyclists.

    We have an active Forum, where we discuss items of interest.
