EACC Fifteenth Coprolite Run & Mopedjumble from Bucklesham Village Hall  Map
to Felixstowe Ferry Boat Inn.
Full reception facilities and free refreshments on arrival.  A fully marked and classic local course to Felixstowe Ferry, and twin to the Radar Run.  Riders who completed the Bawdsey Point section of the Radar Run might be interested in the contrast of the opposite view back across the Deben estuary.  A fabulous riders’ course on both legs, especially as the route bursts out onto the Golf Links road for a traditional sprint to the Ferry Boat Inn lunch stop.  Drink fine ales to the panorama of coastal boats on the estuary, stunning views, big skies, Martello towers, explore the Ferry boatyard…  Why is it called the Coprolite Run?  The explanation is in the course notes.  Please contact Mark if you’d like him to set you a spot in the hall or the car park (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.

7th October

Suitable for cyclemotors

100-miles: suitable for cyclemotors?

The VMCC 100-mile run was first run in 1985 and, in those days, nearly everyone did it on a cyclemotor.  The idea was that the run should be challenging; to experience that properly, you ought to ride a cyclemotor.  A quick three circuits on a moped before lunchtime isn't really what the event is about.

A Village Hall Event

VMCC Cyclemotor Section 100-mile run from Quainton Memorial Hall, Station Road, Quainton, HP22 4BW.  Map
From 8:00am onwards.  The route is 33.3 miles, complete three circuits if you fancy the challenge of the 100 miles.

A Village Hall Event

EACC Kneel’s Remembrance Wheels and the EACC AGM at Great Blakenham village hall.  Map
The last EACC mopedjumble of the season combined with a tour of the quiet Suffolk lanes.
Kneel’s Wheels is the biggest of the EACC village hall based runs; the village hall in question is at Great Blakenham.  This will be the twelfth running of this classic event.  Full reception facilities and free refreshments are available on arrival.  The mopedjumble is typically supported by all, from the larger stands to the various smaller pitches of general members.  The jumble opens 9:30am, the run sets off after the two minures silence at 11:00am.  The lunch stop is at Claydon Crown.  After lunch, the run returns to Great Blakenham where the jumble continues.  The EACC AGM will be at 2:15pm—although the AGM is, of course, ‘members only’, the EACC welcomes non-members throughout the rest of the event.
Directions to the start: Great Blakenham is on the B1113.  Leave the A14 at its junction (No 52) with the B1113 and follow the signs to ‘Gt Blakenham’.  In Great Blakenham, turn right at the ‘Village Hall’ sign into Mill Lane, opposite the Chequers pub.  The village hall is along this road on the right.

Everyone welcome—Free day membership if you’re not an EACC member.  Please contact the organiser for more information or to reserve a jumble space (telephone Neil Morley on 01473 743587).

2019

28th April—Ride it Day

Every year the FBHVC has its Drive it/Ride it Day on the Sunday nearest to St George’s Day.
Note: the 2019 Drive it Day will be a week later than normal to avoid Easter Sunday.
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 have arranged 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.

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).
