The British Engineerium opens at 10am Sunday 23 April for a special open-day to welcome back, after many years absence, classic and modern motorcycles as they depart and return from the Engineerium on a 60 mile (and 35 mile for older bikes) run through the Sussex countryside.
To mark the occasion the wonderfully restored Victorian buildings housing the magnificent Beam and other steam engines will be fired up for the day.
Jack Jolly, British Engineerium creative director, says: “We are delighted to host this motorcycle run at our historic working steam museum. The engines will be full steam ahead especially for this event and we look forward to welcoming the the riders and public to our newly restored engine houses.”
Rotarian, John King, joint event organiser, says: “For several years ago Rotary ran this event from the Engineerium but sadly had to stop. But now, thanks to the owner and his team we are able to once again.”
Chandlers BMW Bikes and Destination Triumph will be showcasing their latest bikes with other bikes hopefully taking part too.
A catering van will be on site too for those all important coffees and bacon sarnies!
The British Engineerium Motorcycle Run is organised by Rotary in Brighton and Hove and Sussex British Motorcycle Owners Club with proceeds going to local charities.
