Cumbria July '11 113

One of the UK’s most popular bike rides for both scooterists and motorcyclists is under threat of closure.

The local council are attempting to discourage riders attending the Matlock Bath event with the installation of parking ticket machines and maximum allowed parking times.


To try and counter this, a protest ride has been organised for Sunday March 6, 2015. The protest ride start point will be the Hurt Arms, Derby Road, Ambergate DE56 2EJ. The pub will be open from 10am, with the ride departing at 12 noon, heading for Matlock Bath.

Additional meeting points are being added for riders travelling from other areas.

Midlands meeting point: Meet at Shifnal Services (jct4 off the M54) at 8.30am – leaving at 9am for the Hurt Arms meeting point


Manchester meeting point: 8.30am at Buxton Wetherspoons – leaving at 9am to head to the Hurt Arms.
