TA EAST E-NEWS AUGUST 6TH 2015

To TA East Members & Friends

From Ferg Muir

 

Here’s a final reminder that TA President Geoff Booker has two days of

TRIKE RACING AT FOWLMEAD, this weekend (in collaboration with the BHPC)

8TH – 9TH AUGUST 2015

There is a good weather forecast – so if you have been hanging back…..

The main information page is on the TA Website at:

with Updates on more recent pages

And if you are going to KENT it may be the moment to consider if you can help PAUL BUCKLEY with this request:

WANTED – CONVERSION AXLE

“One of the juniors in my club is looking for a cheap tricycle conversion set. We are happy to do painting and greasing.
Contact me paul@callams.fsnet.co.uk tel 01634 389650

Regards, Paul Buckley”

(Paul’s club is the Wigmore CC, based at Rainham in north Kent)

ANOTHER JUNIOR FIXED UP WITH A TRIKE CON-SET

Coincidentally, I understand that on Paul Willsher’s TA EAST MEET AT SAXSTEAD GREEN young Lloyd Biggs – son of David – proved something of a natural trying out Sian Charlton’s trike and decided he wants one. He will probably be getting an axle which has been tucked away in Sian’s shed – and which his Dad and uncle are well-qualified to sort out.

 

I must say it was a bit ironic that train enthusiast Lloyd and his professional train driver dad didn’t make to Elevenses at Leiston – because their train broke down!

But all got together at Saxstead – but it did leave Paul was eating up surplus cake when I phoned next day.

One of the six or eight photos rotating at the top of the

RIDE LONDON WEBSITE

http://www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/

features West Suffolk Wheeler Brian Aldis winning the handcycle race on The Mall last Sunday.

Brian now lives in the Creetings and has ridden this incredibly low three-wheeler in a couple of Wolsey RC club “10”s on the Henley Circuit, just north of Ipswich, recording 30:45 and 28:53 on arm-power alone.

This on a twisty fun course with two sharp hills.

I fear my times on my Higgins in the same events were 39:04 and 38:52. Last night he came past me like a rocket – a metaphor made more appropriate by the narrow, low and long shape of his machine
