On Saturday, September 23, 2023, a crisp Saturday morning, nine members of the Sikh Motorcycle Club UK set off from Leicester, ready for a weekend adventure in Wales. With their engines revving and their spirits high, they set off on a journey to explore the breath-taking scenery and winding roads of the Welsh countryside.
Their route took them across Mid Wales and North Wales, through the heart of Snowdonia National Park. They passed through charming villages and picturesque towns, marvelling at the snow-capped peaks of Mount Snowdon and the lush valleys below.
Along the way, they stopped at scenic spots to take photos and soak up the natural beauty of Wales. They captured stunning images of waterfalls, lakes, and mountains, as well as the iconic Llanberis Pass, Pont Pen-y-benglog and Cymdeithas Genweirwyr Dyffryn Ogwen.
The weekend ride was a fantastic opportunity for the club members to bond and create lasting memories. They enjoyed riding together on winding roads, exploring new places, and capturing the beauty of Wales on camera.

Remembrance Day 2022 - Remembering our Heroes

Sikh Motorcycle Club UK taking part in Remembrance Day service held at Victoria Park Leicester.

Sikhs have made a long and valuable contribution to the British Army and a unique respect for each other’s courage, skill and determination has led to a proud, shared military heritage. On 12th September 1897 in an ultimate test of devotion to duty, 21 British Indian Army Sepoys (Sikh soldiers) defended the Saragarhi outpost in the hills of the North West Frontier Province (now Pakistan but then part of British India), against 10,000 Afghan tribesmen.

Rather than surrender, the soldiers fought to the death against impossible odds for nearly 10 hours with basic ammunition and bayonets. Although the outpost was lost, the Afghans later admitted to having lost around 180 of their soldiers with many more wounded, demonstrating the expertise of the Sikh warriors. To honour the selfless commitment and courage of these Sikh soldiers they were posthumously awarded the Indian Order of Merit, the highest gallantry award of the time.
