Team 5 is the name given to the fun, social side of YAM and you can join as soon as you’ve passed your IAM test. We organise regular rides on Saturdays and other social events including a Christmas get together.
Our usual pre-COVID meeting point was Squires Café on Saturday mornings. We would congregate for a chat, bite to eat or a drink, and then ride out in organised groups from about 10am. Since March 2020 and when permitted, our rides have started at various other locations instead, to allow us to comply with the IAM and government guidance in place at the time. We’re looking forward to restrictions easing so we get to see Associates and their Observers again and spread the word about Team 5!
We offer full and half day rides with planned stops, designated leaders, back markers and a drop-off system that keeps everyone organised. The great thing about riding in a group with Team 5 is that you can put your well-earned skills into practice and keep developing new ones with like-minded riders – we’ve all done the same training! You might discover some new routes too - always a bonus.
Easy - go to the Rides section as there you'll find all the bits that you do actually have to
read so you can ride out with us. From there you'll be able to go to the Registrations page and sign up. Rides are open to all Team 5
members (in groups of 6 for now).
