    So, you can go on a factory tour at Hinckley anyone done this? I quite fancy it, seems like it may be a bit of a ways out for a ride out, but would certainly like to go at some point.

    We have always planned on going but never got round to arranging it.

    It's only 90 from Chipnum. Could stop at the arboretum for refreshments (almost perzactly half way).

    Return to Ciren for coffee and farewells.

    i do tend to expand the travel time for eg: appx 2hr 30mins to triumph plus appx 30mins for splash n dash both ways, tour appx 90 mins+parking up so roughly 2 hours there - 8 ish hours total. depending on the route !

    being me, looked via A429-A5-A47 but will be a bit of a white line run, there's gonna be alternative routes that someone knows

    obviously not gonna be til next year i would assume, if we can get concrete numbers may be worth pre booking the tickets (might even get a discount)

    No discounts - it's VERY popular. Guided tour is £18 p.p. Problem will be all getting into the same group. MUST be booked and pre-paid online.

    The museum and exhibition centre (on 2 floors) is free with no need to book.

    One thought is that it could be an off season thing if we had minibus numbers and a willing driver. I imagine it would be £130 - £170 for vehicle and fuel.

    Another thought is that its not too far from Matlock bath, but if you overnighted around there after a ride up and over the dales would you want to spend a couple of hours in the museum, or be out riding....
