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 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 times.

Our little toddle out before August’s meeting started at 6pm with a great turn out of club members … seven riders to start with as we had ‘on route’ members to catch us up.  The weather was yet again on our side for a gentle 15.8-mile ride along the country lanes.  Traffic was light for the time of day, which made the ride easier.  From the Farmers Arms down to Latham, across to Burscough, a quick left and right saw us cross the A59 then, after a few mintues, we stopped for a photo or two at WWT Martin Mere, into Holmeswood, then to the Hesketh Arms at Rufford for a short break before carrying on to Mawdesley, then back to the Farmers Arms, just in time to see a few other members arriving for our monthly meeting.

Twelve at the meeting; Carl had brought the ordered polo shirts for us (if you fancy a Slow Riders polo shirt and or a club patch please contact me for details).  The chip order went in after the landlady informed us that they had changed the type of potato after last months disaster!  This time it was Chip Barms … and very nice they were!  The meeting ended as members started to set off home, some on their bikes some by car…

So the evening came to an end…

Ride safe and see you all soon
Just before I close:
My new bike, a Tomos Colibri, ran well with it being its first ride in 26 years, just a few things to sort out.
And that's about it for this month’s meeting.  Catch you all soon: on a ride, at a show or the next meeting,

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 to 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…


Four of us meet at Reepham last night for the short run to Whitwell Station bike night.  Unfortunately the weather was not great and there were not many bikes about but we had a good time and plenty of chatting to the many bikers who came to look at our machines.

Our next normal ‘not’ meeting of the second Wednesday of the month will again be on a Tuesday! (8th August).  We will ride to Old Buckenham from Martin’s at Long Stratton.  Meet 6:30ish for a prompt departure at 7:00 or will be good to meet others there.

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 clubs 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

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 organises two or three rides each year, usually in Bedfordshire.

Future events

At the 2017 Daffodil Dash, David Osborn ‘volunteered’ to organise this run again in 2018.  Nevertheless, any additional help in the area would be greatly appreciated.

Hi fellow moped owners,
We at the northern section of the EACC are planning a weekend event sometime in July 2017; we’ll finalise the date after Christmas … but it won't clash with the Norfolk Sectoion’s weekend event.  I have got a campsite venue in mind but have to sort out the dates when it will be available.  The site will have toilets, showers, cafe amenities, and is set in a wonderful setting.  I think there maybe some electical hook-ups; this will also be comfirmed for availabilty.  I will keep club members informed of the developments as and when they occur.  The plan is to have a run out on Friday; on Saturday we’ll ride out to visit a Norman castle; on Sunday thre’ll be a ride to a local heritage museum.  As well as my e-mail address (above) our you can contact me through the UK Mobylette Forum (Moby54).

Best regards,
John Bann

Any more?

We are hoping that, as the club grows, we will have events further afield.  If you’re interested in starting a section in your area, please get in touch (the e-mail address is at the bottom of this page).  Above all, we want the club to be driven by the enthusiasm of its members so, if you have any ideas, don’t hesitate to let us know them.  If you’re tempted to have a go at running an event, we’ve prepared some guidelines on how to do it … but if you have any questions at all, please ask.
