Ride it Day

Every year the FBHVC has its Drive it/Ride it Day on the Sunday nearest to St George’s Day.
The aim of Drive it Day is to increase public awareness of Vintage and Classic vehicles by having as many as possible on the road for one day.  There are many events—see the Federation Website—www.fbhvc.co.uk—for more details.  Several museums arrange special parking areas and reduced admission fees for anyone arriving in or on an old vehicle.  Or you can just take your old vehicle along to whatever you’d be doing anyway: going to work, going shopping, anything.

25th April—Ride it Day

In 2021, Drive it Day will be run in support of the NSPCC’s Childline

EACC Lancashire Slow Riders Weekend Rally at The Breighton Ferry near Selby, North Yorkshire  Map
Cost £5 per person a night.  Electric extra if needed, limited but you can share and use splitters, only pay for what you use.  Full facilities: Pub on site for food, etc.  Showers/toilets.  Free fishing.  Ride outs planned every day.
Obviously everything depends on the situation at the time and any restrictions, etc, but if allowed it WILL be going ahead; please let the LSR know if you want to join them.  It’s a Bank Holiday weekend so may get booked up if restrictions are fully lifted, so if you’re on the ‘maybe’ list there is no guarantee there will be room; you’ll be added to the camping list as soon as you confirm.

Day riders also welcome—just turn up on the day, any moped or bike.
Anyone wanting to attend, please contact Paul:

Mark has managed to book the hall provisionally as a base for this run—Covid restrictions allowing.  It will be the same format as previur years’ Alex’s Birthday Runs, but probably with a stop for lunch at Sizewell Tea Café on the coast, as this has outdoor seating and should be open regardless.  The hall will be open from 9:00 and the run wiil be approximately 25 miles.
Everyone welcome—Free day membership if you're not an EACC member.

A busy and atmospheric day that is one of the major events on the cyclemotoring calendar; it features full reception facilities and free refreshments on arrival.  The route is a superb and fully marked course through the quiet countryside of the Felixstowe peninsula, including a super riders’ section between Nacton and Levington, a classic drag down a ‘passing place’ road to Trimley, lanes through to Falkenham, Kirton, the greenhouse village of Newbourne, then more lanes on to Waldringfield Maybush.  There won’t be the usual indoor jumble but you’re welcome to set up outside.  Mopedland will be there with pre-ordered items only.
For information e-mail or telephone Mark Daniels on .  The jumble opens 9:30am, the run sets off at 11:00am, the jumble re-opens at 2:00pm when the run returns.

Notes

Many events listed in this calendar are "closed to club members".  The EACC offers free day membership to visiting riders at all its rides.  The NACC, British Two-Stroke Club and the VMCC Cyclemotor Section also offer day membership at selected events, for which there is usually a charge.  The golden rule is: if you want to take part in an event listed here and you do not belong to the organising club, always contact the event organiser to see if you are permitted to take part.

Generally, riders of veteran and low powered machines are also welcome at these events.  Contact the event organiser for details.

Please call at a reasonable hour when telephoning for details of events (not forgetting the time difference if you're 'phoning another country).
