Our History

The Retreads Motorcycle Club Christchurch was formed in May 1995 after initially having contact in 1991 with the Rhode Island (USA) Retreads chapter.  Alf Caldwell and John Poulsen are credited with starting the Christchurch chapter along with a small committee of Gary Schumacher, Ross McGregor amongst others and were joined by a number of Gold Wing, BMW and Christchurch Ulysses Motorcycle Club members.  A high proportion of Retreads members at the time wanted a more relaxed club atmosphere than could be provided by Ulysses.  Retreads offered this along with the involvement of their partners and supporters.
