On Sunday 5th July, Crich Tramway Village in Derbyshire will host their 4th Annual Classic Motorcycle Day.

Organised in conjunction with the Vincent H.R.D Owners’ Club, the event combines the passions of vintage trams and classic motorcycles offering a great family day out.

Free entry is offered to owners of classic motorcycles built prior to 5th July 1995 who wish to exhibit their motorcycles for a minimum of three hours, thanks to local skip & grab hire firm ’Derwent Waste Management’, who have sponsored the event for the fourth year.

There will be prizes awarded for ‘Best British Motorcycle’, ‘Best International Motorcycle’, ‘Best Japanese Motorcycle’ and ‘Best Pre-war Motorcycle’ which will be decided by judges, while the public will have the chance to vote for ‘Best in Show’. 

The Old Bike Mart magazine will once again provide the cup for ‘Best Classic Motorcycle in Original Condition’ ((i.e. non-restored). 

New for this year is an award for ‘Best Scooter’. Vincent H.R.D Owners’ Club organiser, Jon Lambley said:

The Vincent H.R.D Owners’ Club are keen to include all makes of motorcycles and scooters, and for all the various owners clubs to engage together in this celebration of two wheeled machinery from the last 120 years.

For motorcyclists on modern motor bikes, which can be parked in the car parks, there is a reduced entry price to the event of £11.50 for this day. Please ask for a voucher on admission.

We have welcomed over 300 classic motorcycles each year over the last 3 years and it’s great to see how much work has gone into maintaining them.
