EACC Nineteenth Coprolite Run from Suffolk Aviation Heritage Museum  Map
This is the site of the three big radio masts along Foxhall Road, on the left after Foxhall Stadium, as you head out of Ipswich toward Martlesham.
The route is a classic local course to Felixstowe Ferry Boat Inn and a twin to the Radar Run.  Riders who have 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.  There won’t be the usual indoor jumble but you’re welcome to set up outside.  Mopedland will be there with pre-ordered items only.
For information 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.
All welcome - free Day Membership if you're not an EACC member.

VMCC Cyclemotor Section The Feeble Machine Run
The advertised start point is ‘The Plough PH, Easter Compton, BS35 2SG’, but we know of no such place or post code!  Easter Compton’s pub is The Fox but there is a Plough nearby at Pilning.  Wherever it is, meet at 10:00 for a 10:30 start on a 35-mile ride on what, judging by the ride’s title, ought to be a cyclemotor-friendly run.
Call Rod on to find out where to go.

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

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 Wheels and the EACC AGM at Coddenham 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 Coddenham.  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 the same as last year with the lunch stop at Claydon Crown.  After lunch, the run returns to Coddenham where the jumble continues.  The EACC AGM will start about 1:45pm—although the AGM is, of course, ‘members only’, the EACC welcomes non-members throughout the rest of the event.
Directions to the start: Coddenham is on the B1078.  Leave the A14 at its junction with the A140 and the B1078 is the first turning to the right off the A140.  Coddenham is the first village along the road.  After the road snakes around the church, turn left in the village centre.  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).

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).
