100 Years

Madgetts Cycles is celebrating 100 years of being in Diss with a 100km cycle ride; there will also be a 50km ride as well for those who want to celebrate but not do the longer ride.  There will also be food and drinks in the village hall from 1pm for the return of riders.  This is more of a social ride and not an organised event: no prizes for finishing first—just a ride with good friends and a social gathering In the afternoon for those who can’t make the ride in the morning.  Mark the date in your Diary, Sunday 26th May, Roydon Village Hall.  More…

2024 Meetings

As usual, our regular meetings will be in the evening of the Thursday nearest the full moon—at least until October. The dates are: 25 January, 22 February, 28 March, 25 April (AGM), 23 May, 20 June, 18 July, 22 August, 19 September, [17 October, 14 November, and 12 December].  We are thinking about changing to daytime meetings during the winter, which will mean the the moon phase won’t matter so much for those; we can make a decision at the AGM.

Contact Mick Madgett on or Cally (at a push) on .  Those not on the regular monthly Flat Section email postings may wish to make contact in order to join in—or any newcomers best to check before setting off!

While climate change generally makes it unlikely that we’ll have enough snow, it does increase the possibility of a freak snow storm, so the Snow Ride stays in the calendar.  If you get up one morning to find the world has turned white, contact the Social Secretary to find out where we’re going.

We’ve been digging out old photographs of our events and, should you have nothing better to do, you can see them in our photo gallery.

Aims of the Society

The pursuance of cycling in the leisurely fashion of days gone by.  The appreciation and conservation of the countryside and its way of life.  The enjoyment of local public hostelries and their ales.
