International Laverda Owners Club - Charity Ride it Day

Classic Motor Hub, Bibury
10am till 3pm
I'm delighted to say that the proposed Ride It Day is now a reality! The event will take place on Saturday 16th May 2020 between 10am and 3pm at the Classic Motor Hub, Bibury. As well as room for over 1,000 motorcycles, the Classic Motor Hub has a number of special guests already signed up, some interesting displays planned and a number of spaces available for Motorcycle clubs. Whilst the main purpose of this event is for riders to get out and use their classic, vintage and high-performance motorcycles on a lovely May day, we are also hoping that with your help we can raise a sizeable chunk of money for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, who will be in attendance. Thames Valley Air Ambulance are a charity providing emergency medical services by air and land to patients within the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. Their paramedics, doctors and pilots are highly trained and ready for any eventuality. They work together as a team, giving you the best chance when the worst happens. Last year, they were called out 2,670 times; that's an average of seven callouts each and every day of the year. They receive no government or lottery funding, relying entirely on donations from the public to provide life-saving services. The Classic Motor Hub has agreed to donate at least £3.00 from every £5.00 entry to the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, as well as money raised from fundraising activities on the day.

RED OKTOBER and CRICH TRAMWAY MUSEUM

Derbyshire
Our visits take in Barrow Hill, UK’s last surviving operational steam locomotive roundhouse, and a road run with mill visit through the Derwent Valley UNESCO World Heritage site. On Sunday we make a welcome return to Crich Tramway Museum for an Eastern Bloc vehicle meet. (Please note that this is a static display of our vehicles at Crich. It is NOT a resurrection of the Red Oktober event that used to run there, as the museum does not wish this to happen and has specifically asked that people do not dress in uniforms etc)
