The Reservoir Dogs Run is now established as a regular Essex Section event; the run gets its name from the route which crosses Aberton reservoir a couple of times.
Paul Efreme is our co-ordinator in Essex and he is always keen to hear from fellow EACC members in Essex; you can e-mail him at .  Essex members often support the events organised by Suffolk Section.

The Norfolk Section arranges events within Nelson’s county.  We have established regular meetings, which involve mopeds, autocycles, cyclemotors and a pub … somewhere in Norfolk on the second Wednesday of each month   They include road runs in the summer months.  So if you are interested in owning, restoring or riding low powered machines from the past, no matter what age or condition your machine, you are most welcome here in the county well suited to ‘gutless wonders’.  Contact Dave Watson on 07483 210625 or e-mail for more details.  Read more…

September Meeting

75% of attendees turned up on two wheels; not bad for a night with no ride organised.  The September meeting got off to a good start with so many bikes arriving.  Well done to all the riders.  Dr Watson rode about 35 miles round trip on a 1951 Bown, including 17 miles in the dark.  Both Ians, John, Will, and Chris were the other riders.  Bob arrived by car & Mother Hen was back up in the Niss-van for the homeward journey of Ian de O, Will and David.  The conversations were the usual wide ranging topics from Panther motor cycles, via Benelli, Mobylette, Rudge, Norman, and New Hudson to cyclemotors.  Among other topics were MkIII Ford Escorts, motor cycle trials, stealth bombers, the price of beer, and engine numbers.

Two stalwarts were missed from among us but we hope Paul & Greg will join us next month to enjoy the good food and beer at the Bluebell.  Our first time at the Bluebell in North Walsham was such a success that we will be back there in October.  Unusually for us we decided to plan ahead a little and we’ve got the rest of the year mapped out for Norfolk Section meetings.  The November meeting will be at The Two Lifeboats in Sheringham.  The Grand Christmas Meeting and festivities will be at the Kings Arms in Martham.  We have to plan that one in advance in order to be able to book a table.

If you haven’t seen us for a while or if you are hiding somewhere in Norfolk and have never met us all, ‘Come yew orn t’gether’.

A really great day at our Inaugural Mid Shires Ride from Grafham Water with some 24 Riders at the start, a couple of breakdowns on the route to the lunch stop which, due to an elenth hour change of venue, was at the Three Compasses in Upper Dean,  They opened their doors with a great welcome.

The following pictures give an idea of the run and also the fantastic venue for the event; made even better with the glorious weather.

Those supporting the event made all the effort of Ray and myself worthwhile.

THANKS
Matt Embleton.

The South East Moped Enthusiasts meet on the last Wednesday of every month at the Horseshoe Public House, Farleigh Road, Warlingham, CR6 9EG at 8pm.  A happy band of club members meets for up some food, beer and a pleasant social evening.  The South East Moped Enthusiasts organise at least ten events a year: three main runs and two displays at classic motoring events.  Mike Follows also organises five mid-week runs during the summer riding season.  All the South East Moped Enthusiasts activities will always be advertised and reported on in The MAC newsletter, also follow us on our South East Moped Enthusiasts group page on Facebook. We welcome all types of small-engined bikes to our events, though it must be pointed out that the nature of the terrain where most of our ride outs take place may require the use of a slightly more robust machine, unless of course you are extremely fit!

We look forward as always to meeting enthusiastic friends both old and new who share an interest in small engined classic bikes.

Although the club has members all over the country, Suffolk is the county that’s best represented in the membership, simply because that’s where the club started.  Therefore, we’ve had a full programme of events in Suffolk since the club was revived in 2007.  Regular Suffolk Section events are the Mince Pie Run in January, Radar Run in April, the East Anglian Run in May, Peninsularis Run in July, Coprolite Run in September and Kneel’s Wheels in November.  Additionally, the section organises the club’s presence at Copdock Motor Cycle Show.  Members in the Ipswich and Felixstowe area regularly meet every week—on Tuesday evenings at Walton Half MoonRead more...

West Anglian Group

Alex Lees, 19 Duloe Road, EATON SOCON, PE19 8FQ
01480 219333

The section was formed when the ‘St Neots Boys’, Ralph Richardson & Alex Lees, came up with the idea of holding a West Anglian Run on 28th September 2008.  This was a resounding success with 32 riders signed on for the ride and several other members coming along for the jumble - or was it for the bacon rolls?

The section used to organise the Duloe Daffodil Dash every year but the village hall at Duloe, where we meet at the start and finish of the ride, has been declared unsafe.  Instead, for the 2019 run, the Mid-Shires Section is incorporated a large chunk of the Daffodil Dash route into its event on May 12th.

The section produces a newsletter: the Whizzer; please contact Steve Hoffman for a copy.

Presently, there is only one run planned for 2019, but there is also the possibility of a second; we are trying to confirm a route and all the other details as I write.
The run details are as follows:
Sunday 19th May—Merkins Café Run, Merkins Farm, Bradford Leigh, BA15 2RW.  Assembly time for the run will be at 09:30 for a 10:00am start.  As you might have guessed by the name of the assembly point, there is a very nice café on site that serves everything anyone might want.  If you require any further details or clarifications, please let me know.
Regards,
