Celebrate the Grand Depart at the National Railway Museum

granddepartTo celebrate the Grand Depart, the National Railway Museum is hosting a rail bike themed weekend with the UK Velocipede Group. Get into the cycling spirit with these unusual pedal-powered vehicles, originally developed to get inspectors and engineers around the railways. Watch demonstrations or even have a go yourself, if you’re over 16. They’ll also be showing live action of the Grand Depart over the weekend on the big screen in Station Hall too, so you’ll get a better view than if you’re out on the streets standing behind several tall people.
