Ford Motorcycle Club

The Ford Motorcycle Club is a group of motorcyclists interested in supporting and encouraging safe and enjoyable motorcycling through regular organized rides and events, rider training courses, sharing motorcycle-related information & rider experiences, and portraying motorcyclists as responsible users of the road.

We typically gather for weekly rides between 6:00 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. at the K-Mart parking lot at the intersection of Haggerty and Ann Arbor Roads in Plymouth. After a brief announcement from the ride leader about general safety reminders and where we’re going, we line up in staggered formation and depart for the 60-90 minute group ride promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Other events are also listed on the website www.fordmotorcycleclub.org and the gathering details to ride to such events are usually communicated through the membership E-Mail distribution list.

We have an annual picnic that includes some fun and simple motorcycle games and great food!

We also have an annual winter ‘inauguration’ party, usually in January.

Club members will frequently plan rides and invite others to join on weekend (or even week-long) trips like Mid-Ohio Vintage Bike Races in July.

Our dues are $20.00 annually and you must have a motorcycle endorsement to ride with the group.

We recommend that you join us for at least one ride before deciding to join.

Photo Club

The Ford Photo Club is proud to be a long-time member of the Ford Employees Recreation Association. Today, its membership is strong and diverse, with members from all walks of life and at all levels of photographic experience. Directed by its Constitution to enhance its member’s knowledge and enjoyment of photography, the Club offers monthly meetings with focused discussions on matters of composition, exposure, lighting, printing, and whatever else might come up as a topic that would benefit the photographic enthusiast.

With the advances in capability, and reductions in cost, of digital cameras, processing, and printing, the Golden Era of Avocational Photography is clearly, right now. Today’s photographic equipment and methods are better, easier to use and more affordable than ever before, and that fact is bringing lots of new people to explore the art and craft of photography. Today’s Ford Photo Club is strong and robust, welcoming all photographic technology, including the latest digital photo and video, but also vintage cameras, film, Polaroid, and pinhole imaging.

The Club also encourages its members to contribute to their communities. Photo Club members have participated with the Dearborn Animal Shelter, the Komen Foundation Race for the Cure, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Ford Accelerated Action Days, and a number of other community service organizations, as photographers, technical advisors, and as general labor.

The club meets at 5:00 pm in Dearborn on the third Thursday of the month.
