Members, It is with great sadness that I have been informed of the passing of Mike Cope (Durham City).Mike was a founder member of DAM and a long-standing Senior Observer. Mike helped many members through their IAM training and was a kind mentor to both Associates and fellow Observers. Mike will be remembered by many older DAM members and was often to be seen on his faithful BMW K100RS, which he owned from new and covered many miles observing and touring in the UK and abroad extensively. RIP Mike.

If you are a biker interested in improving your riding skills we can help you. Durham Advanced Motorcyclists is a registered charity, non-profit making organisation, affiliated to the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM). Our group has around 200 members and is growing continually.
Our members are all ages, come from all walks of life and ride all sorts of bikes, such as sports replicas, tourers, sports tourers, adventure, custom and cruisers.
We have a very active social scene that caters for everyone. We meet at 7.30pm towards the end of each winter month (except December) at the Bowburn Hall Hotel, see below, where you'll be made welcome.

There is a large room set aside for us and meals are available. We have guest speakers during the winter meetings, when possible, and rides out during the biking season, March to October. See below.
Riding your bike is one of life’s great pleasures. However, regardless of whether you’re new to biking, returning after a break or have many years experience, our advanced riding courses can make you a better rider and bring you even more enjoyment and confidence to your riding. Whether it’s about improving your own standards or reassuring a loved one who struggles to share your enthusiasm, our Skill for Life programme can make you a better and safer rider.
