About this Event

From Pedals to Petrol: An Illustrated Journey Through the Development of the Motorcycle by Dr Reg Eyre

Friday 18th October from 7.00pm at Kennet Valley Hall, Lockeridge, Marlborough SN8 4EL

This fascinating talk takes us on a journey from the early foot powered bicycles to modern petrol power taking in pedals and steam power along the way, looking what speeded and impeded the developments and how society and legislation affected progress.

The Evening's Speaker - Dr Reg Eyre

Reg Eyre has been a motorcyclist since the age of sixteen and never had a period without a motorcycle. He became fascinated by old machines and found that he was allowed to ride these primitive machines on the public highway. This has led to published articles in motorcycle magazines, a Ph.D. and publications in various journals as well as talks about the history of motorcycles. He is currently leading a debate within the Vintage Motor Cycle Club concerning the dating of Pioneer machines.

Tickets are £10-00 to include light refreshments and a cash bar, and available through www.eventbrite.co.uk or by application to events@kvh.org.uk

All proceeds from the evening are in support of Headway - the brain injury association and Crofton Beam Engines
