Started in the 1940's, Stoney Lonesome was one of the first motorcycle racing groups formed in Indiana. In the 1950's the club purchased the first piece of the property that has now expanded to over 300 acres.

Stoney Lonesome is located 6 miles West of Columbus, Indiana on U.S. Highway 46 and approx. 43 miles South of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Club events are a year round schedule of activities that seek to promote all aspects of motorcycling and the support of numerous charities.

The club is chartered by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and all members and public riders are required to be active members of the association.

Club Membership

Stoney Lonesome MC is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the sport of motorcycling by running one of the premier AMA Hare Scramble race series in the State of Indiana along with an annual AMA National Dual Sport and Adventure ride.

Hare Scramble races and National Dual Sport and Adventure rides are open to the public, at all other times access to ride the property is restricted to members only.

The club has a member cap of 60 members with 4-5 prospective members typically on the waiting list. Those on the waiting list have a sponsor and have submitted an application.

In addition to annual dues, club members do the work to keep the grounds and facilities in shape and to run our public events.

All club members are required to be members of the AMA.

We get numerous inquiries regarding membership, so here are some answers to the most commonly asked questions:

How can I apply to become a member?

Prospective club members are sponsored into the club by a current member. If you know a club member, you can ask him/her to be your sponsor. Your sponsor will need to invite you to a club meeting at which time you may fill out a membership application. Your application will be filed in the order received and reviewed monthly in a regular club meeting. During this review your sponsor is expected to let the club know of your involvement activities. This is intended to give the members a feel for the quality of member you would be if voted in later.

Once sponsored, what is expected of me?

All club members and prospective club members are expected to contribute their time and talents to helping to keep the club running. We track these efforts through a series of work points which allows us to gauge your commitment to club activities.
