Transport Torques: Mary Motorcycle

Martyn Moore
Tiffany Coates

Join the National Motor Museum Trust team for a specialist Transport Torques evening event on Saturday 6th April, for the public premiere of the film ‘Mary Motorcycle’.

In October 1967, 26-year-old Mary Sievier set off to ride to India on a 175cc BSA Bantam motorbike. She reached India… and then kept going for nine years. Mary became the first British woman to ride solo around the world, but remained unknown until 2021.

After the screening of the film, join award-winning documentary maker Martyn Moore and leading motorcycle adventure traveller Tiffany Coates for a Q&A session giving some fascinating insights into Mary, her extraordinary journey, and how this film came to be. Mary’s newly restored BSA Bantam will be available to view.

Martyn Moore is a film-maker, photographer and writer. He was a journalist and magazine editor for more than 20 years, including a time as editor of Bike Magazine.

Tiffany Coates has explored six continents by motorcycle, riding many hundreds of thousands of miles through countless countries during more than 20 years of adventurous journeys.

The Q&A is hosted by Saul Jeavons of The Overland Event.

Time: 6.30pm – 9pm (with interval).

The Collections Centre will be open from 5.45pm.
