Classic Motorcycle Day at Crich Tramway Village

The increasingly popular Classic Motorcycle Day at the National Tramway Museum, Crich, near Matlock will return this season on Sunday 7th July.

The National Tramway Museum, set in the heart of Derbyshire, is a charitable organisation, with a large number of volunteers, whose motivation is to preserve the history of the tram. The Vincent H.R.D Owners’ Club have a passion for classic motorcycles and the combination of the two groups of transport enthusiasts makes for a classic day out.

Marketing Manager, Amanda Blair said: “Last year, over 400 classic motorcycles and over 1600 visitors attended the Classic Motorcycle Day, and this year it is likely to be even more popular.

“It’s free entry for all classic motorcycle exhibitors, thanks to local skip & grab hire firm ’Derwent Waste Management’, who have yet again sponsored the event.”

There will be prizes awarded for ‘Best British Motorcycle’, ‘Best International Motorcycle’ and new for this year, ‘Best Japanese Motorcycle’ and ‘Best Pre-war Motorcycle’ decided by a judge. In addition, ‘Best in Show’ will be decided by a public vote from all the motorcycles on display.
‘Best Classic Motorcycle in Original Condition’ (i.e. non-restored) was introduced last year and supplied by Morton’s, and will be presented this year by Pete Kelly, editor of Railway Model Maker Magazine.

There will be a separate area set aside for pre-war bikes, and the motorcycle clubs will be grouped together.

Visitors can take advantage of the amazing displays of classic motorcycles, unlimited tram rides, exhibitions, shops, Rita’s Tearooms and the Red Lion pub all set in the beautiful surroundings of the Derbyshire countryside.

Admission costs £17.50 for adults, £14.00 for seniors, £10.50 for children, or £40.50 for a family ticket (two adults and 3 children). These prices include free return within 12 months (subject to opening dates and excluding the World War II events).

For motorcyclists on modern bikes and pillion passengers, there is a reduced entry price of £11.00 for the Classic Motorcycle Day.
Registration for the event is via tramway.co.uk
