Club History

Waterford, Ohio

1954 - A Motorcycle Club was formed by a group of guys that loved to ride. Those founding members were; Albert Bartell, Bob Hughes, Jack Wolfe, Jerry Dye, Sam Sadler and of course their Wives. The club's original name was the Knights of the Golden Circle.

1956 - The club joined the American Motorcyclist Association and changed their name to Pioneer Motorcycle Club representing the "Pioneer City" of Marietta, Ohio. In 1959 the club was incorporated and became a "Not for Profit" Corporation. During the early years meetings were held at the various members homes at multiple locations through the Mid Ohio Valley.

1957 - Saw the Club's 1st Hillclimb and over the next several years, hosted other types of events; Rocket Runs, Lime Runs and Poker Runs for the road, Hillclimbs, Scrambles, Enduros, Harescrambles for the Off-road, and Motorcycle Rodeos for both road and off-road.

1974 - Pioneer Motorcycle Club, Inc. made their final move to the current location in Waterford, Ohio purchasing 30 acres, clearing land, building a hill and laying out trails soon became priority. The surrounding neighbors have worked alongside the club, allowing them to use the land for various events.

Currently the Club has approximately 40 active members, which take care of all the up-keep, maintenance, improvements and event duties by donating their time, equipment and energy for the Love of the sport! Two founding members are still active in the club today Sam Sadler and wife Virginia and Ruth Hughes wife of the late Bob Hughes. Les and Kelly Wolfe, Son and daughter of the late Jack Wolfe (founding member) both currently hold offices and are active in the daily operation of the club and events.

Pioneer Motorcycle Club was formed because the founding members enjoyed Motorcycling!
