There was a good attendance at the EAST AGM – thankfully, as there were some tough decisions to be made .
With no Breckland “12” in 2014 and several reports of worrying traffic conditions in the only alternative, the Eastern Counties CA 12, there will be no TA East 12, with rides in any UK 12 counting for the East BARs.
It was decided to run the 50 only so long as a non dual-carriageway partner event could be found*.

The 100 – We have agreed with the TA National Executive’s request that we run the 2014 TA East and Fliss Beard 100s alongside the CTT Championship. This is in Norfolk in July, on a new circuit course based at Swaffham and including some of the beautiful unclassified roads through Cockley Cley..

* With East District dates having to be with CTT only three days after the TA East AGM, this did not prove possible, so the 50 will miss a year – and we have time to make considered arrangements for 2015.


FOR SALE If you are looking for a small trike – you may be interested in one of these two –
