A ride round the Norfolk Broads. This is a new EACC ride that goes from the Village Hall, Repps With Bastwick, NR29 4RB.  Map
This is just South of Potter Heigham on the A149 Yarmouth to Cromer road and only five miles from the A47 at Acle.  It is a village hall based event, like the the Suffolk EACC events where there will be tea, coffee, biccies ,and toilet facilities before and after the run.  There’s plenty of parking for bikes, vans, and trailers.  The hall will be open from 9:30 (it is hoped that Danny from Mopedland will be there with a small selection of his vast stock—or phone him with orders to save postage.  Other stalls will be welcome.  The ride leaves at 11:00am; it’s about 28 miles long: a circular run around the Norfolk Broads area with all left-hand turns.  There will plenty of opportunities to stop for lunch.

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

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).

Suitable for cyclemotors

The Radar Run - ideal for cyclemotors

The Radar Run has an optional, shortened route for cyclemotors, 11 miles shorter than the main route.  The cyclemotor route runs along the same roads as the main route but omits two ‘dead end’ spurs.  This means that the back-up vehicle can cover both routes.

The EACC 16th Radar Run and Mopedjumble starts at Bromeswell Village Hall.
There’s a superb circuit around Bawdsey peninsula with lots of historical interest details on the course notes.  All welcome—free Day Membership if you're not an EACC member, the usual free pitches for jumble stands—call Paul on to allow him to set your spot in the hall.  Jumble opens from 9:30am, run sets off at 11am.
Everyone welcome - Free day membership if you're not an EACC member.

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.

EACC South East Moped Enthusiasts East to West Side Adventure starting from Crimdon Dene Coastal Path (near Hartlepool)    Map
For the third and final time, this adventure sets off on at around 10:30am and makes its way across the country to an overnight halt at Alston.  The following morning the journey continues to Whitehaven in Cumbria.  Similar to the ‘established’ route but with some interesting deviations, up-to-date instructions, and a more traffic-friendly ride into Whithaven.  It’s more than a run, it’s an adventure in some very scenic parts of the country with the chance to meet up with friends both old and new.

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).
