Suitable for cyclemotors

Some organisers make special arrangements to make runs suitable for cyclemotors and similarly slow-moving machines.  These runs are marked with a green logo.  A ride doesn't have to be especially short or hill-free to qualify.  Arrangements to prevent cyclemotorists being left behind on their own and getting to the lunch stop half an hour behind all the mopeds are what is needed.

If you'd like an event listed here, please contact us.

Events with this symbol have a village or community hall as their starting point.  You can be sure that there will be toilets and a cup of coffee available when you arrive ... and usually there will be a jumble too.  Read more...


Every Tuesday

EACC and FMCC meeting at the Half Moon, Walton, Felixstowe.  Map
From around 9:30pm.
 

1st October

Not affiliated to any Club or Group

The Inaugural Derek Ashworth Celebration Run.  With unavoidably short notice, this will set out from the Farmer’s Arms, Chorley Road, Bispham Green, Parbold, L40 3SL.  Map
Meet at 10am, which is when the pub will open for breakfast, coffee, butties, etc, etc; aim to ride out before 11am. This is a non-denominational event—it is not affiliated to any Club or Group, but is open to all and welcomes any friend of Derek.  Since Derek’s enthusiasm was mainly directed at Autocycles, we want as many of these as you can bring!  If you've got one: bring it.  Ride it if you can.  Just let it see the light of day! Frank Bz. has volunteered to do the legwork, will lead the run, and hopes to mark the route beforehand.  The ride will be about 35 miles in total, heading for Frederick’s Ice Cream Parlour on Bolton Road, Chorley, PR7 4AL where we shall stop for a Raspberry Ripple/Rum and Raisin combo since that was Derek’s favourite.  Suitable refreshed we will ride to Rivington Top Barn, BL6 7SP to amaze and parade in front of the throngs of bikers who congregate there every Sunday.  Further food and drink will be available at Rivington.  But more importantly, there are prizes!  Derek’s daughters are offering a Cup for the Best Autocycle, in Derek’s memory, and Frank is offering a Shield for the best Machine with Engine and Pedals, again in Derek’s memory since he was always keen on the traditional definition of Moped.  These will be voted for by riders, and spectators at Rivington; they will be presented at the end of the run, which will be back at the Farmer’s Arms after an easy downhill ride in bright sunshine and with a following wind.  We're aiming to get there in time for a late lunch, if anyone wants one, and if things go smoothly!  See farmersarmsparbold.co.uk for the lunch menu.  Sunday Roast is also available.  While Autocycles will be the theme, it’s more important that you just turn up, ride, and enjoy the company—so don't miss it!

1st 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.

EACC Kneel’s 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 eleventh 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 at 11:00am.  The route is a new one this year but the lunch stop stays 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).
