WHO WE ARE
The Men’s Motorcycling Club of Indiana is an organization for gay and bi men in Indiana and neighboring communities who enjoy the sport of Motorcycling. Its members own and ride "cruiser" type bikes. We are an active club that rides several times each year in season. We’re proud to have assembled a great group of guys that have fun in a close-knit, family-like environment. We are also strongly committed to riding safety.
WHAT WE DO
MMCI is primarily a RIDING club, although we also have many social events throughout the year. During the riding season, MMCI organizes rides to points of interest and along scenic routes, some of which are perennial favorites and others which change each year. Each month throughout the calendar year events are planned and scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays with destinations determined by membership suggestions. The club sponsors at least one extended event during the riding season, which can be a weekend or week long. Additionally, many dinners and social gatherings are held during the year for members and their partners or significant others. Few members are able attend every event. We provide a full calendar so that every member has an opportunity to attend riding and social events regardless of their busy schedules.
WHO CAN JOIN
Gay and bi men in Indiana and nearby states who are licensed owners of and actively ride cruiser type bikes are welcome to apply for membership. Prospective members need to attend two events, one of which must be a riding event, before being invited into the club. We also offer a family membership for partners of riding members that is tied to the riding member’s membership. In addition, we require that all riders in MMCI possess a non-expired drivers license with a motorcycle endorsement. You can join MMCI with a learners permit, but you must get an endorsement prior to your 1st renewal date.
ABOUT CRUISER STYLE MOTORCYCLES
CRUISER style motorcycles are the standard American-classic bikes, such as Harley Davidson, Yamaha Star, Kawasaki Vulcan, Suzuki Boulevard and Victory brands. This does not mean that other brands are not allowed, but these are given as an example. What it does mean is that sport bikes or “crotch-rockets” and enduro style motorcycles do not qualify for membership and are not permitted for use on our rides. We have found that keeping MMCI a “CRUISER” motorcycling club provides for a better riding experience all around, and feel this adds to the safety of our larger riding groups.
Each ride begins with a sign-up sheet logging all riders and an emergency contact. Then a quick review of safety hand signals and road riding protocol is provided. Most of our members have completed a riders’ safety course, and MMCI highly recommends this for any new riders.
ABOUT THE WEBSITE
Members are given access to the member’s only areas of the website where they can create their profiles, sign up for events, view photos of past events and more. Once in the club, a link will be provided for signing up on the MMCI web site. You can then complete your membership and make payment through the secured Club Express web portal. Each event, riding or social, has an event organizer who designates the specifics of the events, these are posted and members indicate which events they plan to attend by signing up on the website.
