Berkhamsted Motorcycle Club Committee Members
Ron Humphries, President
Sorry No information supplied to date
Ian Reynolds, Chairman
Ian has been a keen motorcyclist all his adult life and, when much younger, spent several years road racing. These two wheeled sporting activities ceased when family and other commitments came along, and Ian focused on other things. However, it was always his intention to try observed trials, and, as road bikes became increasingly complex, with fuel injection and computers, and thus hard to fettle in the garage, Ian started trials in 2005 by buying an air cooled twin shock, the simplest motorcycle possible. Ian remains happy messing around on a Sunday morning with his bike on the Blue Route. Email >>

Martin began riding trials around 1977 and joined the Berko club at around the same time. He then went on to have a dabble in Motocross before having a break due to the kids. (his son Scott rides trials today and his daughter Sam has a road bike) Martin got back into trials in 1984 and joined the committee later in 1990 as a non titled member and has not looked back since. Martin rides a modern bike in the clubman class and was on the expert route as an Intermediate in his day. Email >>
