The third running of the Golden Era Vintage Motorcycle Run will provide a nostalgic Bank Holiday treat for visitors on Monday 29th August. Some sixty pre 1931 motorcycles will gather at the Museum before departing for a run around the surrounding countryside. They will return at around 12 noon, where they will stand on display for the visiting public to admire, whilst the intrepid riders take a well earned lunch.
During the afternoon, there will also be a flypast by a Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, weather permitting, providing another magnificent spectacle for visitors to enjoy.
With machines dating from 1904 onwards, the event evokes a bygone era of British manufacturing, when the nation led the world in the development of the motorcycle. These are all belt and chain driven machines and are kept in immaculate condition by their proud owners and restorers.
So, don’t miss this opportunity to see some rare classic machines and all the other fascinating exhibits and historic aircraft that the Museum has to offer.
