Golden Era Vintage Motorcycle Run
29th July 2018
2018 will see the tenth anniversary of this annual vintage motorcycle get together here at the Museum. Join us and see motorcycles from the very earliest days of motorised transport setting out from the Museum for a day’s riding around the Yorkshire Wolds.
An annual nostalgic gathering of amazing pre 1931 vintage motorcycles at the Museum. The Golden Era Run is organised by the Vintage Motor Cycle Club and each year more than 100 motorcycles, some more than 100 years old, depart from the Museum for a gentle adventure around the Yorkshire Wolds.
In addition, we will be enjoying a flypast by the Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane overhead the Museum. (subject to weather and availability)
This year, the approximate schedule will be as follows:
By 10;00am, most of the motorcycles will have gathered in the Museum grounds. From 10:30 am onwards the riders will depart from the Museum into the Yorkshire countryside.
At 11:00am, our vintage biplanes will be running for our visitors to enjoy, so expect the aroma of mineral engine oil to be around the Museum as the SE5a and Eastchurch Kitten come to life.
12:00 Lunchtime in the NAAFI restaurant. Don’t forget to be at the front of the queue for our famous Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding.
13:45 After lunch our biplanes will be running again as an accompaniment to the motorcycles arriving back at the Museum.
14:00 The collection of vintage motorcycles will be on display before their owners depart for home.
Normal Museum admission charges apply.
