To TA East members and friends

From Ferg Muir

Firstly …may I wish all readers of TA EAST E-NEWS a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Secondly our BREAKFAST MEET at STOKE ASH WHITE HORSE has crept up on me. It is this comingSaturday – the 4th January 2014

Stoke Ash White Horse is making a feature of their Breakfasts, so we will meet there to sample them on SATURDAY at 9.30am. Do note this unusual time for a TA East Meet. This will enable busy TA members to meet up with us and still have the rest of the day to attend to their other commitments.

The White Horse is on the A140 Norwich-Ipswich road, 6 miles due south of Diss.Grid Ref TM113709, Postcode IP23 7ET

However I certainly don’t advise using the A140 to get there. The inn (they do accommodation if you don’t fancy an early start from home) is on a crossroads with ThornDON just to the east and ThornHAM Magna just to the west ….and by far the best approaches would be from either of these villages.

If you are not feeling very fit do remember that this meet is not far from Diss Station and trains from Norwich, Colchester etc and scheduled to be running normally

Thanks to Ian Charity for suggesting this idea and venue



If you fancy riding even closer to the trike in front than you can at the moment ….then have a look at the discussion about a very smart lightweight trike – look on The Trike Shed pages of the On3wheels forum

Or – for an alternative to what you might think of as the TA style – here is a Schwinn, modified almost beyond belief:
