To TA East members and friends

From Ferg Muir


I must hasten to get this edition out – as it is less than a week to the sale in which the trikes belonging to the late Max Scott are to be sold. – On SATURDAY 11th April at Hadleigh nr Ipswich in Suffolk.


Max – whose death was recorded in TA East E-News for Jan 17th this year, was a long-term member of the TA and started his tricycling in Ipswich, where his sister Maureen and brother Mike are still active club cyclists

Regarding the size of the machines I see that the On 3Wheels trike forum


has a bit more information:

“Max was quite tall, the largest tricycle frame is 58.5 cm”.


Anyway – here is the poster put out by the family:



Looking a week further ahead…

Our next TA East Meet will centre on lunch at WIVENHOE – on SATURDAY 18TH APRIL

at the ROSE & CROWN where we had an excellent meet two years ago when we sat outside, in bright sunshine, at tables overlooking the Colne Estuary and framed by the traditional sailing craft that are attracted to the Essex rivers


We can’t be sure if the weather will be so good a second time, but if not, the pub has an interesting interior as well.


Then, by my calculations ….entries for the TA EAST SLEAFORD 25 organised by Pete Holland will close on Tuesday 21st April. the event itself is on   the afternoon of:


on course C25/22, based at Silk Willoughby and running south on the A15 and then eastwards on the A52 to turn at Donnington. Here is a summary of the details, including the DUNSTON WEEKEND: Saturday 2nd May East May 25 at Sleaford on C25/22, 2pm, plus Old Skool (Pre ’80 spec) bike & tandem event. Entries £8, Peter Holland, Stepping Stones, Main Rd, Dunston, Lincoln LN4 2EZ

Camping at Dunston and the usual socialising will be available, but food this year may be limited to takeaways.

Feel free to ring Pete and Gwyneth for more information – 01526 322633.


On the final day of the weekend aficionados of fast courses will trek north, over the Humber Bridge to the Mike Dixie 10 on V718, event sec Martin Purser.



It was good to welcome Les Young to EAST events …in our MARCH 25 – which he duly won in a 1:16.

And also to be joined by Vera Staines and daughter Mandy Burchett at lunch at North Lopham.


The Chairman has written up the occasion on the TA Website at <a href=”https://tricycleassociation.org.uk/the-season-warms-up/” target=”_blank”>https://tricycleassociation.org.uk/the-season-warms-up/</a> where photos by Rod Gathercole of Swaffham are also on view.


I notice that ERIC MARSH has dusted down his trike again – he rode it in the Eastern Counties CA 10 on 21st March to a time of 29:14……………at the age of 84.


On that note I will send this out and head for bed…

Best wishes to you all
