To TA East Members & Friends
Pie & Pint at North Tuddenham Tomorrow Evening, (Wednesday 6th August)
Optional 10 mile time trial thrown in
As advertised on page 44 of the Summer Gazette, some of us from the northern part of the region are meeting at the North Tuddenham Lodge Inn, following CC Breckland club 10. Grid ref TG 047140, on the old main Norwich road, 4 miles east of Dereham.
The idea here stems partly from the Ipswich CA evening “10”s which are all based at inns or licenced clubs and regularly attract 30 or more riders. This idea combined with our own evening meets, such as at Pin Mill.
The CC Breckland run the 10 – to ride this come along at about 6.45. We will head for the pub 7.45 – 8pm ish.
EAST TWELVE-HOUR (August 3rd)
1 John Thompson (Severn RC) 228.71, 2 Andrew Nye (Ashford Whs) 214.472, 3 Martin Badham (CC Breckland) 178.307.
It was Martin Badhams best 12 hour for over 20 years. Andrew’s PB by several miles.
Though based near Watton, the main part of the course was on the A11 between Wymondham and East Harling
It was a good day Riders encountered no more than the odd light shower and temperatures were not too hot.
The leading 3 bike riders did 288, 279 and 275 miles respectively.
