Colin McLearnon


Colin has served as Chapter Director since 2014. He got his first bike at 16 and progressed up the ranks from there, giving up biking when he got married and had a family. In 2004, he saw Euan McGregor and Charlie Boorman on TV and this inspired him to go back on the bike. Colin toured all around Europe and Africa on a GS before swapping to Harley Davidson and touring across the United States.

Colin is a born organiser and is very inclusive. He stressed that the Chapter must be member-driven, doing what the members want to do, and he would facilitate that. When something looks easy and effortless, it is generally not the case, requiring hours of quiet planning and preparation, but seems like the swan gliding over the water with its little legs paddling like fury underneath.
