Edinburgh & District Motorcycle Action Group

Edinburgh & District Motorcycle Action Group

Due to general lack of attendance, the Edinburgh meetings, normally held on the second Monday of the month at The Auld Hoose, will probably no longer be held. If you have some view on this please let us know.

West Lothian meeting: third Tuesday of the month at The Bridge Inn, Ratho.

The Now You See Us? campaign included a demo run in Glasgow on 23rd August, some photos are in the Gallery pages.


The Motorcycle Action Group aims to promote and protect the rights of all members of the 'open air' motoring fraternity, whether you ride a motorcycle, scooter, moped, trike or quad.

We hope to bring together the motorcycling community of Scotland - and the UK - in a spirit of friendship and cooperation, and of course provide an opportunity to engage in nerdy bike talk.

New members are always welcome, so if you are thinking of joining MAG please click here, alternatively you can contact us or check out our meetings page, where you can find details of where to come along and have a beer, contribute to a healthy debate and have good laugh (often at at the expense of the committee members). If, in addition, you can help with organising events or have ideas for new events, so much the better. Experienced members of the group are happy to give guidance and support if you need it.

If you are a MAG-friendly trader and would like to benefit from the patronage of MAG members, or would like to advertise on our site, we'd love to hear from you.
