The ‘Suggested Steam Sunday’ format, where we pick dates to ride over to the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway to watch steam trains while having a pint in the Kitchener Arms, will continue through 2020. The Middy has a steam day on 1 January, so that will be the destination for our New Year’s Day Ride. There will be oil lamps on display at the museum so it seems appropriate to have ‘match-lit’ lights on our bikes too.
Ipswich Transport Museum won’t be having its usual bicycle day on the late May Bank Holiday Monday this year. This seems like a good excuse for another ride to the Middy, which we can follow with a ride to whichever pub the V-CC Flat Section is going to that night.
The dates for our monthly meetings at Rattlesden Five Bells during the first half of the year are listed in the calendar. These are scheduled for the Thursdat nearest to the full moon. The meeting in March will also be our AGM.
The V-CC Flat Section’s 2019 last-Monday-of-the-month meetings will alternate between destinations. Firstly: at the Crown in Bedfield, then riding to The Victoria in Earl Soham; secondly: at the Half Moon in Rushall. There may also be impromptu mid-month meetings at other pubs, which we stand no hope of keeping track of here.
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.
