MID-LIFE CRISIS MCC
Formed in October 2003, the Mid-Life Crisis MCC is Salford's only motorbike club. Set up originally by a group of friends the club has moved on to include regular run outs, appearing at rallies and events, and putting on parties.
"We cater for the over 30s or those who have been riding for quite a while on bikes over 500ccs and we have people from all backgrounds" says Mid-Life's Chairman, Steve Blay "We're a side patch motorcycle club, which means that we don't wear back patches like the Hells Angels."
The Mid-Life Crisis MCC website adds that while members have different opinions on what they should ride "be it a Harley, Jap Cruiser or Crotch Rocket" they all have one thing in common – "two wheels and a sense of freedom and fun."
They like rallies, rock and supporting charitable causes, like Derian House Children's Hospice. And, by all accounts, they know how to throw a top party.
For the Mid-Life Crisis MCC 7th Anniversary Party, there's a bash at the Ship Hotel 538 Liverpool Road, Irlam M44 6AJ on 9th October, from 7:30pm 'til late, which features Riff Raff and local band Scooba Shack, plus a `live' tattooist and a `Whiskey Roll'
£5 tickets are available from club members and behind the bar at the Ship or call 07791 794 740, 0161 794 5910, 07790 919001 or 789 4599. There's a Group/Club Offer: Buy 10 tickets get 1 free, and there's a special prize draw on tickets presented on the night. No ticket no entry.
Then, on 17th October, the Mid-Life Crisis MCC is taking part in the Dennis 'Deano' Kennedy Memorial Run to Blackpool in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. The event is open to all comers, starting with breakfast registration at the Oddfellows Arms, Church Street, Eccles, at 10:30am, leaving around midday & arriving back around 5pm. There will be a non motorway route for anyone not able to use the Motorway as well as a route using part of the motorway.
