Down Riders 

Formed in January 2012, Down Riders is a group of keen motorcycle enthusiasts mainly from the beautiful region of Co. Down, Northern Ireland. With a shared love for the thrill of the open road and the camaraderie of fellow riders, our club is dedicated to promoting safe and responsible motorcycle riding, while also showcasing the stunning landscapes and scenic routes of our home county.

Our objectives

Our primary objective is to promote safe and responsible motorcycle riding practices among our members. We achieve this through regular group rides, organized by experienced riders, which focus on scenic routes and quiet roads. We also provide a social platform for members to meet, share stories, and enjoy each other's company.

Our Rides

We organize regular group rides throughout the year, exploring the best routes and attractions that County Down and Northern Ireland has to offer. From the rugged coastlines to the rolling hills and mountains, we will take you on a journey through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Northern Ireland. Our rides are designed to be enjoyable for riders of all skill levels, from beginners to experienced bikers.


Membership is open to anyone who shares our passion for motorcycles and wants to join a friendly and welcoming community. Whether you are a seasoned rider or just starting out, we welcome you to join us and become part of our club. Members can participate in group rides, attend social events, and further afield excursions.
