The Museum Workshop Days are free of charge to friends of the museum as part of the membership.
NMM Friend’s “Try a Classic Bike” Day
Date: Saturday 12th March 2016.
“Try a Classic” Day is another exciting day for bike enthusiasts. With further dates to be announced, Saturday 12th March will be the first opportunity for enthusiasts to try a classic bike of their choice. Veteran and vintage machines with lever throttle/hand change (training provided) as well as later machines from 1940s-1960s will be available to choose from.
Members will get the chance to ride a number of laps on the motorcycles from the museum’s inventory in a “closed road” environment within the museum grounds.
Morning or afternoon sessions are available with a nominal fee of just £5.00 for friend’s scheme members to cover insurance costs.
NMM Friend’s Classic Bike Tours
Dates: Saturday 3rd April, Saturday 18th June and Saturday 24th September 2016
There are three dates throughout 2016 set for the bike tours where friend’s scheme members can ride some of the most exciting and valuable classic motorcycles from the museum’s inventory.
An induction and “off road” training will be given before being escorted by ex-police motorcyclists around the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. The machinery on offer varies from a BSA C15 to a Brough Superior SS100! The hire fee is based on the class of machine which includes insurance costs and lunch in the museum restaurant.
