Details
This event is now full
As part of my 2018 bike touring bits & pieces I am planning….a visit to the Triumph Motorcycle Factory & Visitor Experience + a visit to the National Motorcycle Museum

Dates………

Friday 22nd June 2018 – meet at the Lloyd Honda/BMW dealership in the Kingstown Industrial Estate, Carlisle at 10.30 am, and via a tour through the Lake District make our way to our 2 night accommodation base at the Premier Inn, Coventry Road, Hinkley, LE10 0NF. Total price for 2 nights (room only on 17.12.2017) – £88 per room. Rooms can be doubles or twins, for single occupancy or sharing. Being Premier Inn the price will no doubt go up as rooms are booked!!

Saturday 23rd June 2018 – breakfast at the Premier Inn and then to the nearby Triumph Factory for a 10.30 am Factory Tour (costs £15 and lasts approximately 90 minutes) followed by lunch and a tour of the Triumph Factory Visitor Experience (free). Further tours commence at 12.30 pm and
2.30 pm if the earlier tour is over subscribed.

Sunday 24th June 2018 – breakfast at the Premier Inn and then to the National Motorcycle Museum (19 miles from our accommodation via Meriden). Lunch at the NMM and then home. Note: entry is half price to those who have paid for the Triumph Factory Tour.

You can see full details of the Triumph and Premier Inn sites online.

Fancy this?? Then……..
1 – bring up the Hinkley Premier Inn site on your PC and book yourself in (the rooms can take 2 beds so if you and a pal wanted to share it works out much cheaper)
2 – Triumph are sending me a group booking form, so to book your factory tour please send me a £16 cheque (£15 tour fee + £1 for my admin) payable to ‘Robert Crawley’, to me at 3 Station Road, Kelso, Scottish Borders, TD5 8DQ.

Please let me know if you can attend and when you book your Premier Inn room, and I will add you to the booking form.

Best regards
