Classic Motorcycle Day at Crich Tramway Village

by Geoff Brown

Row of classic bikes at crich Tramway Village

This year’s ‘Classic Motorcycle Day’ at Crich Tramway Village will be the fifth event for the partnership with the Vincent HRD Owners Club and with sponsorship from Derwent Waste Management.

The event attracts around 300 motorcycles, made up of vintage machines to relatively modern machines of the1990’s, all of which must be over 25yrs old. 

A live band will play at the bandstand during the day and there are numerous trophies for the best machines judged by expert judges, including Best Original Motorcycle judged by the editor of Old Bike Mart, Blue Miller. 

The ‘Best in Show’ Trophy will, again, be voted for by the visiting public, who are encouraged to browse the whole display before making their selection.

Best International and best pre-war bikes from 2021

With 2022 being the year that the Kawasaki Z900’s celebrate their 50th anniversary, the organisers hope for an impressive line-up of Z1’s.

Entry to the event is free for all riders of classic machines and scooters. There is catering on site, a pub and plenty of areas to relax in or go for a walk.

Whilst trams are not currently running, safety work is being conducted this month to get the trams running again in July, but whilst the Tramway management can’t guarantee trams will be running at this stage, they can guarantee the Classic Motorcycle Day will go ahead, even without the trams.

Vincent HRD Owners Club organiser, Jon Lambley said:

“Many of the classic motorcycle owners consider this event to be one of the most important in the year, and we hope that everyone will enjoy this year’s display and vote for their favourite machine.”
