To TA East members and friends

From Ferg Muir


I have a confession – I have deprived our Lunch Organiser of his dot

That’s in the last TA East E-News….. and I fear, in the forthcoming TA Gazette.

It’s in Martin Badham’s email address, which should have a dot between his names thus:


So- Here are the corrected details of the TA EAST LUNCH 2014

Eastern Lunch at The Manger, Bradfield Combust.

Bradfield Combust is on the A134, 6 miles south of Bury St Edmunds.

If you are in doubt about joining the TA East ride from Corncraft at Monks Eleigh to the Fleece at Boxford, just feast you eyes on the sun symbols on tomorrow morning’s weather map

Do join us.

The core time when I hope to be at Corncraft would be around 10.45 to 11.15. I hope to be at The Fleece soon after 12.30, but tricyclists are independent minded….

Details repeated at the bottom of this email

PS …the actual Met Office forecast says

Dry, bright, chilly start. Cloud will thicken later in the morning, limiting the brightness later. Perhaps the odd spot of light rain later….



I was sorry, but in some ways relieved, to hear that about two weeks ago Dave was found in his car near his home, having he lost all sense of where he was & stopped in the road. A passer-by rung for an ambulance. Said to be in hospital now, with his brother looking into arranging a place in a care home.


This information kindly passed onto me by John Tann.  John Tann ?  well, if I tell you that John’s father and uncle rode a Coventry Rotary tandem tricycle when it was the latest thing towards the end of the 19th Century, you will realise that John is not young!

Coventry Rotary tandem tricycle??  …that’s the one with one big wheel in the middle on one side, and two little wheels, front and back, on the other side.


There is further sadness in the news that LES LOWE has died. For more details see the News pages of the TA Website


Finally – a repeat of the details for our meet tomorrow -Saturday 14th Dec

We are meeting:for coffee at Corncraft, Monks Eleigh. Core time 10.45 to 11.15am
