TA EAST E-NEWS 25TH AUGUST 2016

To TA East members and friends

From Ferg Muir

 

OUR NEXT MEET:

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 3RD for our

EAST REGION AGM

12.15pm at Tostock Gardner’s Arms, Church Road, Tostock IP30 9BA Grid Ref TL955636.

 

We need a quorum of seven, so do please make an effort to attend

(We have already a couple of apologies from “Regulars” so this is more important than usual this year)

 

Prior to the AGM we will meet 10:15am for coffee at Maglia Rosso cafe/bikeshop, just south of Hawstead, near Bury St Edmunds IP29 5NR, Grid ref TL862582 – giving us a pleasant ride to Tostock

Lunches will be available after the AGM …………assuming we don’t go on unconscionably long

2017 EAST 50, 100, 12 Hour.

In the recent TA East News (15th Aug) I mentioned Martin Badham’s request to be relieved of some of his event organising – this year the 50, the 100 and the 12 hour.

I should have mentioned that offers to run any of these should be made, in the first instance to Martin, in his capacity as TA East Racing Sec 01603-897738 or martin.badham@talktalk.net

(These events are usually run in conjunction with another club’s bike event)

 

NB Just in case there is no response – I have asked that the AGM consider dropping one or two of these events next year – that’s if no volunteers come forward.

HIGGINS FOR SALE

Peter Lucas of Halesworth asks me to mention that his Higgins trike will soon be offered for sale on Ebay

This trike is now available for private sale.

Please contact Peter on 01986 874468 or peter.lucas@keme.co.uk for more details or to arrange to view – (please don’t turn up on his doorstep without prior arrangement)

 

There is also a pair of Mavic MA4 28 spoke tubular rims on Higgins large flange hubs and a period front wheel

—————————————————————————————————————————–

Sadly it is ill-health that is forcing the sale – but all is not lost – Peter has purchased a folding ICE recumbent trike ….so he is asking……

 

ANY TRICYCLIST NEAR HALESWORTH INTERESTED IN JOINING PETER FOR SHORT RIDES to contact him – details above

BARRY CHARLTON

It is good to hear – from Peter Hopkins – that “Baz” – multiple trike competition-holder Barry Charlton is now out of hospital.

Barry was descending a mountain in Tenerife when he met a car that was on the wrong side of the road.

I understand that there were no actual bones broken, but there was bad muscle damage that has kept Barry in hospital in Stoke-on-Trent for four weeks.

We wish him a rapid recovery

WINTER TA EAST MEETS

Our plans for the period November to January have vto be with the Gazette editor by Tuesday 13th September

So if anyone has a plan for a ride in this period that they can lead – please let me know soon

TA EAST 50 – WAVENEY VALLEY

Great to see four trikes start and four finish – one more than started the East 100

Lez Young won on scratch in 2:29:56. TA National Time Trial Sec Paul Potter took the Handicap prize with an actual time of 2:49:29, net 2:23:36.

 

Thanks are due to Lez for not only pointing out that the captain was proposing to lead the clubrun with a right hand crank held on only by wish – the crank bolt having completely disappeared. But Lez promptly produced and fitted a spare.

So we proceeded uneventfully along lanes to lunch in the sunny garden of  Homersfield Black Swan

———————————————————————————————————————————–

TA EAST “12 HOUR – only two entries were received so no TA event – the two trikes will be ridden in the accompanying CC Breckland “12”
