An important aspect of the club is meeting your fellow riders through socialising over lunch on a ride, attending an evening gathering at a local cafe, or going on a rally.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Belonging to Ulysses also gives you the opportunity to take advantage of a range of discounts from local motorcycle dealers, the Cook Strait ferry crossings for passengers and motorcycles, as well as insurances.
Please check out the various business that offer discounts to Ulysses members on the "Rider Services" tab.

The Ulysses Club is a nation-wide motorcycle group for over 40 year olds who enjoy life, and riding their motorcycles in the company of riders at all levels. If you are returning to riding or just starting out we will look after you ….tempted?

June 26th Sunday Club Ride - Riwaka Hotel

Surprisingly, we have never been to theRiwaka Hotel as a branch. The new owners(from 2019) are making a real go of it, and definitely worth a visit. Option going thereare Moutere Highway or directly on Route66. Home direct on Route 66, or up theMotueka Valley via Kohatu.

July 10th Sunday Club Ride - Toad Hall

Probably one of Motueka’s most popular watering holes. Excellent food and fast service. Option is to go there directly for morning tea and decided on a longer ride to come home, or the reverse and get there in time for lunch. Decide on the day.

July 24th Sunday Club Ride - Mapua

Some fish and chips on the waterfront sounds like a nice winter option. If too early for that, Alberta’s on the corner do excellent coffee and yummy treats.
