To TA East members and friends
From Ferg Muir
First – a reminder that we are meeting this SATURDAY (7TH JUNE) at MALDON for coffee and for a lunchtime & early afternoon visit to STOW MARIES AERODROME.
Further details at the end of this edition.
FLISS BEARD TRIKE CHAMPIONSHIP 100, Sunday July 13th
Entries are needed by 17th June – to synchronise with the bike championship – even though there is no “NS” code in the CTT Handbook.
£9.00, to Martin Badham, 9 St Pauls Close, Horsford, NORWICH NR10 3HG
Martin is awaiting the exact start and finish points but this is the draft description of the course:
B100/ 6 (Swaffham – Stradsett – Stoke Ferry – Oxborough – Swaffham)
START on New Sporle Road, Swaffham and head south to turn LEFT on Norwich Road, proceed east to MacDonalds RAB at junction with A47 where take 1st exit and proceed west on A47 to A47/ A1122 RAB, take 1st exit and proceed on A1122 to Stradsett X-roads. Turn LEFT at X-roads and proceed on A134 to junction near Stoke Ferry to Oxborough, turn LEFT and proceed through Oxborough and Cockley Cley to X-roads at Swaffham (adjacent to Haspalls Road playing fields) to join circuit (27.4 miles).
Turn LEFT and proceed through Drymere and Beachamwell to T-junction with A1122. Turn LEFT and proceed to junction to Oxborough, turn LEFT and proceed through Oxborough and Cockley Cley to complete circuit at Swaffham.
REPEAT circuit 3 times to FINISH in the vicinity of Haspalls Road playing fields (100 miles).
Although not mentioned in the CTT handbook, I would appreciate entries by 17th June, in line with the National Championship which is supporting the Fliss Beard.
INVITATION TO THE LEA VALLEY CC REUNION at the COMET HUT also on SUNDAY 13th JULY.
As an alternative to the Fliss Beard 100, an invitation has been extended to all TA East members attend the
Lea Valley CC’s annual reunion at their Burton End Hut near Stansted Mountfitchett.
The central feature of the day is a cold buffet at, to quote an impeccable source “1.30pm…ish”, in addition it may be possible to stay overnight.
Full details should be in an attachment to this Newsletter. You do need to book .
A reminder that it is always worth keeping an eye on the on3wheels forum at:
COFFEE STOP: WRABNESS
I notice our member Herman Ramsey has the following item in the Colchester Rovers Newsletter –
The community Shop at Wrabness has moved to new premises by the entrance to the railway station and has a small cafe. The fare is limited at the moment – just hot drinks, items from the shop and, usually, homemade cakes plus, on Fridays only, pizzas. There is eating for about twelve, but, as the unit is run by volunteers and there is often only one person serving advance notice is requested or groups of more than 3 or 4. Telephone the shop on 01255 886068 a day or two in
Opening hours are 0900 to 1300 daily and 1500 to 1800 Monday to Friday except Bank Holidays.
May I wish all Rovers a safe and successful New Year.
Happy wheeling, Herman Ramsey
